Design Features

  • Unlocks the full motion control power of our Automation1-iSMC intelligent software-based motion controller
  • Features complete configuration & performance capability of XC6e PWM servo drive
  • Provides up to 100 amps peak output
  • Offers 240 VAC & 480 VAC voltage options
  • Eliminates the PC from your control scheme
  • Allows for up to 12 axes of control when more Automation1 drives are connected over the HyperWire fiber-optic bus
  • Includes safe torque off (STO) safety circuit


The iXC6e is a part of the user-friendly Automation1 motion control platform, which includes the following:

Control Your Full Machine

When deployed to an iXC6e drive, our Automation1-iSMC motion controller can control up to twelve axes of motion over the Automation1 HyperWire® communication bus. You can truly control a full machine or system with this device. All axes are tightly coordinated with other axes on the network to deliver contoured motion and a single, simple machine control architecture.

Delivers Ultra-Smooth Motion

Achieve ultra-smooth motion profiles with the iXC6e’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 iXC6e, including safe torque off (STO), a 67.1 MB data array (stores 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 iXC6e 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 iXC6e 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 iXC6e our highest-resolution position feedback drive. It also supports dual-multiplied and dual-absolute encoder feedback.

Control Your Process

The iXC6e is more than a motion control device. It also includes many process control features. Empowered with our Position Synchronized Output (PSO) functionality, a single-axis iXC6e can track up to three encoders in real-time to trigger a process tool like an industrial laser or camera.
