ACS Motion Control Introduces Master Control Module
ACS Motion Control Posted 08/14/2013
MIGDAL HA’EMEK, Israel — ACS Motion Control has developed a control module and EtherCAT master to address OEMs of advanced machines with highprecision 2- or 3-axes motion stage and flexible configurations with additional axes and IOs. This includes manufacturers of wafer and flat panel inspection equipment; laser cutting, printing, scribing, annealing equipment; medical CT and XRay imaging equipment; and industrial servo driven material puller/cutter equipment.
The SPiiPlusCMhp/ba, with three built-in universal drives, 1 to 5kW each, provides a cost-effective solution to the needs of modern motion centric machinery for economical, yet high performance, compact, scalable and distributed control. With 20kHz sampling rate, powerful control algorithms, incremental and absolute encoder interfaces, the controller delivers ultimate servo performance, the shortest move & settle possible, minimal jitter, outstanding smoothness, multi-axis synchronization and robustness.
As an EtehrCAT network Master the SPiiPlusCMhp/ba controls and synchronizes up to 32 axes and thousands of I/O. The EtherCAT open architecture operates in conjunction with ACS’ line of EtherCAT servo, step motor drives and I/O modules, as well as with any certified EtherCAT module that complies with CAN-over-EtherCAT (CoE) protocol, providing a comprehensive and cost-effective control solution for demanding machinery.
The SPiiPlusCMhp/ba module is fully supported by the SPiiPlusNT Suite application development studio for network setup, drive configuration, axis tuning, and multi-axis application programming. The SPiiPlusNT Suite also includes a full PC-based controller simulator that significantly reduces the cost of ownership and time-to-market for OEMs, system integrators and end users.
