  • 100 kHz cycle time for low-latency, drive-to-drive distributive control
  • Controls up to 32 axes with no performance loss
  • Uses standard glass optical fiber cables with small form-factor pluggable (SFP) connectors
  • Immune to EMI noise

Superior Reliability. Total Flexibility

With HyperWire, you can count on reliable communication that is immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and nearly free of jitter. Plus, the HyperWire protocol operates at 100 kHz — five times the speed of competing solutions — enabling efficient, multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) control algorithms you won’t find anywhere else.

Hyperwire is flexible enabling servo motor and laser scan head drives to be simultaneously added to a single HyperWire network.

Emit Great Motion

When you choose to build your solution around HyperWire, you’re making the choice to outperform your competitors. Fiber optics are the clear winner in high performance systems, and HyperWire is the clear winner in motion technology.

HyperWire enables high-speed, highly coordinated motion control by providing two Gbps communication — 20 times that of conventional solutions. This enables high-resolution, 64-bit, double-precision floating point trajectory values to be sent to Automation1 drives at astonishingly high frequencies:

  • 20 kHz 64-bit trajectories for servo drives
  • 100 kHz 64-bit trajectories for galvo drives

A glass optical fiber with small form-factor pluggable (SFP) connectors ensures your reliable communication is immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI).

The HyperWire protocol provides direct drive-to-drive communication at 100 kHz, allowing multiple drives to share information within a single servo-cycle. The result is efficient, multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) control algorithms that cannot be achieved using other communication buses. HyperWire also features Aerotech’s patented jitter reduction technology, which can reduce communication jitter by more than a factor of 40. This enables nanometer-level multi-axes synchronization.

Gain Design and Application Flexibility

HyperWire allows for flexible solutions. Fiber-optic cables connect a wide selection of Automation1 drives to the Automation1 software-based machine controller (iSMC) via a HyperWire peripheral component interconnect express (PCIe) interface card installed on an industrial PC. This configuration enables complex, realtime control to be implemented on the Automation1 controller and allows access to that controller directly through the Automation1 .NET API.

HyperWire PCIe Card

Turn your industrial PC into a high-performance motion engine with the HyperWire PCIe card. Simple to install, the card adds two SFP ports for the glass optical fiber, high-speed HyperWire communication bus and can connect up to 32 axes of precision motor drives — each capable of operating at industry-leading performance levels.

HyperWire Cables

Glass optical fiber HyperWire cables are immune to EMI noise, securely click into Automation1 drive hardware and enable drive-to-drive spacing of more than 400 meters. “Snap-in” SFP connectors offer reliable, simple connections, and a 30 mm bend radius allows for easy installation in electrical cabinets.
