Automation1

The XC6e is a part of the user-friendly Automation1 motion control platform, which includes the following:

Delivers Ultra-Smooth Motion

Achieve ultra-smooth motion profiles with the XC6e’s optimized servo system response, which includes the use of up to sixteen (16) second-order loop-shaping filters, precise time-aligned feed-forward and other proprietary techniques.

Packed with Features

The features you need most come standard with the Automation1 XC6e, including safe torque off (STO), a data array with more than 16 million 32-bit elements, digital and analog I/O, Position Synchronized Output (PSO), dedicated home and end-of-travel limit inputs and an enhanced current sense device.  The drive also includes internal bus voltage monitoring, over-voltage protection, an integral 300W shunt resistor and integral cooling fans.

Easy to Integrate

Integrating the XC6e is simple with features like auto-ranging control supply, integral encoder interpolation options, automatic brake control, digital and analog I/O expansion board and standard absolute encoder support.

Feedback Flexibility

The standard XC6e accepts square-wave and absolute encoder feedback signals. With the optional encoder multiplier feature, sine-wave encoders can be multiplied by up to 65,536, making XC6e our highest-resolution position feedback drive. Dual-multiplied and dual-absolute encoder feedback is supported.

Control Your Process

The XC6e is more than a motion control device. It also includes many process control features.  Empowered with Aerotech’s Position Synchronized Output (PSO) functionality, a single-axis XC6e can track up to three encoders in real-time to trigger a process tool like an industrial laser or camera.
