The Series 90-30 and APM operate together as one integrated motion control package. The APM
controls axis motion and handles all direct communications to the drive and machine while the
PLC automatically transfers data between PLC tables and the APM.
The PLC also provides a means for connecting Operator Interfaces, which can control and monitor
system operation. An example of an APM servo system showing the hardware and software used
to configure, program, and operate the system is shown below
