Rack Mounted Motion Controller Provides New Level of Precision, Motion Control
Supplier: ACS Motion Control
Part Number 3U-HP
ACS Motion Control, an
international manufacturer of advanced multi-axis motion controllers,
machine control systems and integrated control modules, has
developed a rack mounted system that delivers smooth motion
control at high speeds, without compromising accuracy, for the
most demanding applications. Designated the SPiiPlus 3U, the
advanced two, four, six or eight axes motion controller features
customized algorithms that offer precise motion control to meet
a wide range of application parameters. Built for OEM rack-based
systems, the SpiiPlus 3U can be integrated into ACS Motion
Control's MC4U rack mount control module to provide motion
control for up to eight motors drives.
"The rack-mounted SPiiPlus 3U features customized algorithms that
give our customers the precise control needed to achieve any
application goal," said Evan Reed, Vice President at ACS Motion
Control. "The SPiiPlus 3U motion controller is incredibly easy to
set-up and use, reducing the application development time and
increasing the machine's time-to-production."
The SPiiPlus 3U controller supports a wide range of motion modes,
including point-to-point, jog, segmented, master-slave and arbitrary
path with PVT cubic interpolation. The motion controller features
third-order profile generation with on-the-fly velocity, acceleration,
jerk and target position changes, and position event generator (PEG)
with sub-microsecond delay to ensure extremely smooth motion and
accuracy, even at high-speeds.
The SPiiPlus 3U also provides sub-nanometer resolution using optional
Sin-Cos encoders with a multiplier factor of up to 65,536. The motion
controller also features a high-rate interface with digital, incremental
encoders for all axis with dual loop options.
The SPiiPlus 3U is easy to program and operate, and is ideal for
applications including semiconductor manufacturing, wafers
inspection and flat panel display assembly and testing.
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 and timing.
