Combination 8-Axis Motion Controller and Servo Drive
Fri, 06/13/2008 - 5:15am
This new unit combines a multi-axis motion controller with a digital servo drive, merging the control of eight intelligent drivers with a servo drive suitable for DC, brushless, and step motors up to 640 W (80 V, 8 A). 3-D and 21/2-D coordinated motion paths are executed through TMC-3D and two other drives using PVT commands. The controller generates the 3-D and 21/2-D trajectories and sends the reference to the slaves as PVT (position, velocity, time) points. Motion programming can be done using PC or PLC motion libraries, and complex motion applicants can be programmed into the unit using TML language.
