Premier Precision Motion Control for Less

Aerotech launches compact, economical single-and multi-axis servo drives.

PITTSBURGH, January 16, 2024 – Aerotech Inc., a global leader in precision motion control and automation, today introduced the new Automation1 XA4 and iXA4 PWM servo drives. These streamlined, economical single- and multi-axis panel-mounted servo motor drives include a full motion controller and I/O expansion options. Future options will include a four-axis version, I/O expansion and DC motor supply.

“The new Automation1 XA4 servo drive series is a game-changer in motion control,” said Daniel Hong, controls product manager at Aerotech. “These powerful, compact drives open up new possibilities for machine builders and automation solution providers. With options ranging from one to four axes, the XA4 and iXA4 redefine precision motion control, making Aerotech quality and precision accessible across every industry,” noted Hong.

Automation1 XA4 1- or 2-Axis PWM Servo Drive

The simplified dual-axis XA4 brings precise, powerful control to multiple axes of motion in the same machine footprint. Deploy XA4 servo drives with the user-friendly Automation1 motion control platform to unlock faster build times, improved quality and higher throughput in less development time. It communicates to Automation1 PC- and drive-based controller products over the HyperWire® motion bus, supports multiple feedback device types and includes on-board memory for high-speed data capture and process control.

Automation1 iXA4 1- or 2-Axis PWM Servo Drive with Motion Controller

The iXA4 brings Automation1’s precision to multiple axes of motion, reduces machine footprint and eliminates the need for an industrial PC. Control 12 HyperWire® axes of motion and run up to nine user tasks on the embedded Automation1 controller. As a drive, the iXA4 supports multiple feedback device types and includes on-board memory for high speed data capture and process control.
