Less complexity, more flexibility

Less complexity, more flexibility

Reduce complexity and increase the performance of your application with the improved Smart Logic Controller (SLC), which is now integrated into every VLT drive. In many cases, it eliminates the need for an external PLC thanks to additional, easily programmable evaluation functions. The expanded SLC is significantly more versatile and powerful than its predecessor and has four sequential loops instead of just one. In addition, each loop can now contain up to 20 function blocks.

The benefits of the new enhanced SLC include:

  • Flexible adaptation to your application
  • Reduced complexity with fewer external components: In some applications, drives equipped with the enhanced SLC can replace a PLC such as the Siemens LOGO
  • No IEC 61131 programming knowledge required. Simple programming is done via the logic control configuration wizard in the MCT 10 software.

The extended SLC is standard for VLT AutomationDrive FC 302, VLT® AQUA Drive FC 202, VLT Refrigeration Drive FC 103 and VLT HVAC Drive FC 102. To use it, you need at least VLT Motion Control Tool MCT 10 version 5.11. Please note that the plug-in is not backward compatible.

The extended SLC is integrated in the following software versions:

  • FC 102: software version 5.70 and higher
  • FC 103: software version 2.70 and higher
  • FC 202: software version 3.80 and higher
  • FC 302: software version 8.60 and higher
