SPiiPlus Econo Series Provides Sophisticated Motion Control at a Low Price
Cost-Effective Multi-axis Motion Controller Series From ACS Motion Control Enhances Equipment Performance
PLYMOUTH, MN (January 29, 2008) -- ACS Motion Control, an international manufacturer of advanced multi-axis motion controllers, machine controllers and integrated control modules, has developed an economical family of motion control modules that provide multi-axis motion control for a variety of motion control application with requirements that range from simple to demanding. Designated SPiiPlus Econo Series, the versatile two- four- six-, or eight-axis motion controllers are available in two versions, the SpiiPlus Stand Alone LT and the SpiiPlus PCI LT. The SPiiPlus Econo Series controllers are designed to enhance the performance of OEM machinery that requires multi-axis synchronization at a lower cost by providing swift and smooth motion at a high resolution without compromising accuracy and throughput.
"Our SPiiPlus Econo Series offers customers an economical alternative that provides sophisticated motion control and maximizes the performance of the OEM equipment," said Evan Reed, Vice President at ACS Motion Control.
The SPiiPlus SA Econo Series is ideal for OEM machinery that requires multi-axis synchronization with various drive types, such as liner servo motors, piezo ceramic, direct drive rotary, voice coil and low EMI linear amplifiers in applications including semiconductor manufacturing, wafer inspection, electronic assembly, printing and packaging.
The SPiiPlus SA Series is furnished with a simple and convenient D-Type connectivity for interfacing with the servo amplifiers, analog and incremental encoders, as well as digital and analog I/O. The modules also features powerful I/O handling with advanced logic capabilities and IEC 61131-3 graphical motion and logic programming.
The SPiiPlus PCI Econo Series motion controller is based on the same technology as all SPiiPlus products and is designed to communicate via the PCI bus, or as a stand- alone control. The SPiiPlus PCI can meet the application requirements for robotic control all the way to XY stage point to point positioning.
The SPiiPlus Econo Series controllers can be implemented in systems with both servo and step motors. The motion controllers support a wide range of modes, including point-to-point, jog, segmented, master-slave and arbitrary path with PVT cubic interpolation.
The SPiiPlus Econo Series modules feature third-order profile generation with on-the-fly velocity, acceleration, jerk and target position changes. The position event generator (PEG) and position registration (MARK) capabilities, both with sub-microsecond delay, ensure accurate and precise control.
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.
