Design Features

  • Controls drive brush, brushless, voice coil & stepper motors
  • Connects through the HyperWire® fiber-optic bus, which has 20 times the bandwidth of 100BASE-T Ethernet buses
  • Produces up to 600W power output from integral power supply
  • Includes safe torque off (STO) safety circuit
  • Features 67.1 MB drive array with more than 16 million 32-bit elements
  • Offers many optional features, including Multi-axis Position Synchronized Output (PSO) and I/O expansion board

You’ll see more accurate position tracking, more precise in-position stability and smaller minimum step sizes because the XL5e’s performance is driven by high-end components that enable zero amplifier “dead time” and high resolution, low-noise current sensing. A highly integrated design means you have control and bus power supplies, servo and current controllers, linear power amplifiers, cooling fans and heatsinks in a single package.

Automation1

The XL5e is a part of the user-friendly Automation1 motion control platform, which includes the following:

Packed with Features

Standard features for the Automation1 XL5e include 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.

Feedback Flexibility

The standard XL5e 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 XL5e our highest-resolution position feedback drive. Dual-multiplied and dual-absolute encoder feedback is supported.

Control Your Process

The XL5e is more than a motion control device. It also includes many process control features. Empowered with Aerotech’s PSO functionality, a single-axis XL5e can track up to three encoders in real time to trigger a process tool like an industrial laser or camera.

Each XL5e can be configured with an optional I/O expansion board, greatly increasing the number of I/O points. The I/O board includes a dedicated PSO output, and PSO can be used with a synchronization input to synchronize process control with an external mode-locked frequency input.

Low Noise Operation

Linear amplifiers are characterized by low noise operation, and the XL5e is no different. This is because linear amplifiers do not incorporate on-off pulse width modulation (PWM) switching to control motor currents.

Ready To Connect

Two HyperWire connections make it simple to connect the XL5e with other Automation1 drive hardware in a multi-axis configuration. A 24-volt one amp brake output is included. The device is CE approved, NRTL safety certified and EU 2015/863 RoHS 3 directive certified. The power amplifier bandwidth is software selectable.
