The XC2 can control brushless DC, brush DC, voice coil, or stepper motor types at up to 100 VDC operating voltage and 10 A peak current capability.
The current loop and servo-loop are closed digitally to assure the highest level of positioning accuracy and rate stability. This allows loop closure rates of up to 20 kHz and allows digital and analog I/O processing, data collection, process control, and encoder multiplication tasks in real time.
Standard features for the XC2 include 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 standard 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, producing
high-resolution position feedback, with the optional encoder multiplier feature.
Each single-axis XC2 PWM digital drive has an optional I/O expansion board; greatly increasing the number I/O points. This I/O board also includes a dedicated PSO output.

- For stepper motors only, one-half of bus voltage is applied across the motor (e.g., 100 VDC supply results in 50 VDC across stepper motor)
- “Keep Alive” supply.
- Output voltage dependent upon input voltage.
- Peak value of the sine wave; rms current for AC motors is 0.707 * Apk.
- Multiplied encoder cannot be echoed out.
- Dependent on total output power: efficiency increases with increasing output power.
