Yaskawa has motion card that plugs into a 1756 rack to control Sigma series servos with AOI's in Logix. Or you could use my preferred method, Logix to an MPiec controller via E/IP.

I've done this in the past, but I used the ABB drive adaptive programming. I don't know if you can just do it with parameters. User HIGHLANDCONTROLS is probably the guy to ask.

FWIW, I believe the Magneteks are just rebranded Yaskawa drives. This goes back to before Yaskawa Electric America, when Magnetek was the US Yaskawa importer. Not overly relevant, just some trivia.

:doh:
