Design Features

  • Part of Aerotech's Automation1 Precision Motion Control Platform
  • Compatible with A3200 version 6.04 and newer
  • HyperWire® fiber-optic interface
  • Up to 30 A peak output current
  • Integral power supply
  • Drive brush, brushless, voice coil, and stepper motors
  • Safe Torque Off (STO) safety circuit
  • Drive array consisting of more than 4 million 32-bit elements
  • Available with Multi-axis Position Synchronized Output (PSO) (Single-axis is standard)
  • Optional two-axis or three-axis Part-Speed PSO
  • Optional I/O expansion board
  • Optional 16K encoder multiplier for amplified sine wave encoders up to 2 MHz
  • High resolution digital current, velocity, and position loops
  • CE approved, NRTL safety certification, EU 2015/863 RoHS 3 directive

 

The current loop and servo-loop are closed digitally to ensure 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.

See how Automation1 Servo Drives Improve In-Position Stability.

Standard features for the XC4 include Safe Torque Off (STO), a data array consisting of over 4 million 32-bit elements, digital and analog I/O (see table), one-axis Position Synchronized Output (PSO), 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 XC4 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 XC4 PWM digital drive has an optional I/O expansion board, greatly increasing the number of I/O points. This I/O board includes a dedicated PSO output and a PSO synchronization input, often used to synchronize process control with an external mode-locked frequency input.
