Press Release Summary:
Single-axis, 2 x 2.5 in. servo motor controller features CAN option that can be configured for peer-to-peer, master, or slave. This allows controllers to share I/O and register with other CANopen enabled SilverDust controllers or 3rd party devices. Accessed through DB15HD port, 7 bidirectional I/O, 12-48 V input power, and communications signals can be separated using QCI-BOB, QCI-BO-B1, and QCI-BO-B1A breakouts, or QCI-BO-B52 breakout can be used for 24 V I/O operations.
Original Press Release:
OEM Servo Motor Controller with CAN
QuickSilver has added a CAN option to its smallest (2"/52mm x 2.5"/63mm) most cost effective servo motor controller. CAN can be configured for peer-to-peer, master or slave which allows the controllers to share I/O and registers with other CANopen enabled SilverDust controllers or 3rd party CANopen devices (i.e. I/O blocks, encoders, PLCs...). For a multi-axis system, connect several MG-Cs, make one the master and let the others receive motion commands over CAN.
This single axis, programmable controller is specially designed to servo 3rd party stepper motors creating a closed loop stepper system. It also includes serial communications (RS-232, RS-485), and 7 I/O. The RS-232/RS-485 serial network runs independently in parallel to CAN for supervisory control from a host (i.e. PC, PLC, HMI..).
The 7 bi-directional I/O, 12V-48V input power, and communications signals are accessed through the DB15HD port and can be separated using one of our popular breakouts (QCI-BOB, QCI-BO-B1, QCI-BO-B1A). For 24V I/O operations, QuickSilver recommends the QCI-BO-B52 breakout.
Other MG-C Features:
o 12-48V DC Input Power (UL CE)
o 7 TTL, Bi-Directional I/O
For 24V use QCI-BO-B52
o 4 Analog Inputs
o Non-Volatile Memory
o ~3000 program lines
o R2-232/485(ASCII, Modbus® RTU)
o 100:1 Inertial Miss-Match
o PVIA(TM) Servo Loop
o Point To Point Moves
o Profile Moves
o Electronic Gearing/Camming
o Multiple Thread Programming
