ACS Motion Control, an international manufacturer of advanced multi-axis motion and machine control solutions, has developed a unique addition to the SPiiPlus EtherCAT Control Solution family. The UDMpc is a line of EtherCAT universal single and dual axis drives for AC servo / DC Brushless, DC brush, two phase and five phase step motors. The module is designed to be mounted on a carrier board.
The UDMpc operates as an EtherCAT slave under any SPiiPlus EtherCAT master controller including the PC-based SPiiPlusSC Soft Controller. It is designed to address high-performance applications with demanding move & settle, smooth velocity and stand still jitter requirements with power of up to 400W/800W (continues/peak) per axis. The SPiiPlus UDMpc is offered with the following current levels: 2.5A/5A (cont./peak), 5A/10A and 10A/20A. An optional safe torque off (STO) module cuts the power to the motor without removal of the power source to comply with SIL-3 and PLE safety levels.
