Machine Control That Stands Alone

The iXR3 motor circuits are driven by powerful controller cards that close the servo and current loops at 20 kHz. These cards also provide several other high-speed, low latency control features to improve the throughput and quality of your process. The iXR3 unit processes digital and analog I/O, high-speed data collection, highspeed differential outputs, position synchronized outputs and encoder multiplication functionality in real-time.

Automation1

The iXR3 is a part of the user-friendly Automation1 motion control platform, which includes the following:

Standard drive features for the iXR3 include per-axis brake control logic, auxiliary encoder feedback and analog I/O expansion. Also standard are 16 opto-isolated inputs, 16 opto-isolated outputs, up to 12 high-speed differential outputs, 3 PSO external sync inputs, 3 TTL or isolated PSO outputs, 1 opto-isolated data-acquisition input and 2 STO sense inputs.

Configuration options for the iXR3 include three different levels of integrated encoder multiplication, cooling options, mounting options and options for low-latency, position-based process control (PSO).

The iXR3 can be configured with either PWM or linear plug-in amplifiers for the control of brushless, DC brush, or stepper motors at up to 320 VDC operating voltage and 30 A peak current capability. Bus power customization is possible through two separate and configurable motor power supply circuits, allowing a variety of motors to be integrated with the iXR3. When only one motor voltage is required, the power supply sections are joined together for even higher power capability. The iXR3 also contains over-voltage protection and external fans for high-power operation.
