ROHS COMPLIANT CONTROLLER
Supplier: ACS Motion Control
ACS Motion Control, an international
manufacturer of advanced multi-axis motion controllers, machine control systems and
integrated control modules, has expanded its economical stand-alone motion controller
product offering to include a RoHS compliant controller. Designated the SPiiPlus SARLT,
the economical two, four six or eight axes stand-alone motion controller is designed
to enhance the performance of OEM machinery that requires mulit-axis synchronization
by providing swift and smooth motion at a high resolution without compromising
accuracy and throughput.
Featuring SPiiPlus PLC and CANOpen master support, the SPiiPlus SAR-LT
provides opto-isolated single ended position event generator (PEG) and position
registration (MARK) I/Os. The SAR-LT Series also supports Hall Commutation.
“Our SPiiPlus SAR-LT motion controller provides our customers with an
advanced, yet economical motion controller that provides sophisticated motion control
and maximizes the performance of the OEM equipment,” said Evan Reed, Vice President
at ACS Motion Control.
The SPiiPlus SAR-LT motion controller can be implemented in systems with both
servo and step motors and can support a wide range of modes, including point-to-point, jog,
segmented, master-slave and arbitrary path with PVT cubic interpolation. The SPiiPlus
SAR-LT motion controller features third-order profile generation with on-the-fly velocity,
acceleration, jerk and target position changes.
Furnished with a simple and convenient D-Type connectivity for interfacing with
servo amplifiers, digital encoders as well as analog I/O, the SPiiPlus SAR-LT controller
features advanced logic capabilities and IEC 61131-3 programming as well as expansion
capability through its option CANOpen interface.
The SPiiPlus SAR-LT motion controller is based on the same control architecture as
all SPiiPlus products, using a common programming language, and is designed to operate
standalone or with a host/MMI via Ethernet or serial communication. The SPiiPlus SAR-LT
can meet the application requirements for robotic control all the way to XY stage point to
The SPiiPlus SAR-LT is ideal for OEM machinery that requires multi-axis
synchronization with various motor types, such as liner servo motors, piezo ceramic, direct
drive rotary, voice coil and low EMI linear amplifiers in applications including
semiconductor manufacturing, wafer inspection, electronic assembly, printing and packaging.
Optimized for motion control applications, ACS’ powerful software tools provide
easy setup, tuning and programming and application simulation. The software enables the
implementation of highly complex motion-time-event sequences with accurate positioning
