Original Press Release:

XC2 Compact, Single-Axis, PWM Digital Drive for Motion Control Applications

  • HyperWire® fiber-optic interface
  • 10 A peak output current
  • Drive brush, brushless, voice coil, or stepper motors
  • Safe torque off (STO) safety circuit
  • Includes single-axis Position Synchronized Output (PSO)
  • High resolution digital current, velocity, and position loops

The XC2 PWM digital drive is a small form-factor, high-performance, single-axis motor drive designed for motion control applications. It is compatible with the Automation 3200 motion platform utilizing the HyperWire® motion bus. The XC2 can control brushless DC, brush DC, voice coil, or stepper motors at up to 100 VDC operating voltage and 10 A peak current capability.

The current loop and servo-loop are digitally-closed to ensure the highest level of positioning accuracy and rate stability. This allows loop closure rates of up to 20 kHz while also permitting real-time digital and analog I/O processing, data collection, process control, and encoder multiplication.

The XC2 includes safe torque off (STO), a data array consisting of over 4 million 32-bit elements, 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 XC2 accepts square-wave encoder feedback at rates of up to 40 million counts-per-second. Sine-wave encoders can be multiplied by up to 16,384 for high-resolution position feedback.

Each single-axis XC2 PWM digital drive has an optional I/O expansion board, greatly increasing the number of I/O points. This I/O board also includes a dedicated PSO output.
