Aerotech introduced its XC4 single-axis PWM drive designed for use with brushless DC, brush DC, voice coil and stepper motors up to 340 VDC operating voltage and 30 A peak current.
The XC4 single-axis PWM drive is compatible with the Automation 3200 motion platform utilizing the HyperWire® motion bus.
The digitally closed current loop and servo-loop provide positioning accuracy and rate stability. This allows loop closure rates up to 20 kHz as well as digital and analog I/O processing, data collection, process control, and encoder multiplication tasks in real time.
Standard features include Safe Torque Off (STO), a data array consisting of over 4 million 32-bit elements, digital and analog I/O, one-axis Position Synchronized Output (PSO), dedicated home and end-of-travel limit inputs, and an enhanced current sense device. Encoder support includes square-wave, sine-wave, and absolute encoders.
The standard model accepts square-wave encoder feedback at rates up to 40 million counts-per-second. Sine-wave encoders can be multiplied by up to 16,384, producing high-resolution position feedback with the optional encoder multiplier feature.
Each digital drive has an optional I/O expansion board, greatly increasing the number of I/O points. This I/O board includes a dedicated PSO output and a PSO synchronization input, often used to synchronize process control with an external mode-locked frequency input.
