Probably there are servo drives like Emerson (former control techniques) or ELAU let's say, that can run code in a special language like ANSI C. They have servo drive CPU that use ET200 for more IO interface and touch panel for HMI. It is very common this. A PLC CPU is not recommended because is slower in response than the previous solution.
