Design Features

  • Connects through the HyperWire® fiberoptic bus, which has 20 times the bandwidth of 100BASE-T Ethernet buses
  • Includes Safe Torque Off (STO) safety circuit
  • Generates 100 VDC bus motor power & up to 10 amps peak output
  • Features drive array with more than 16.7 MB of memory
  • Collects analog sensor or position data up to 320 kHz (triggered by axis position)
  • Offers many optional features, including Multi-axis Position Synchronized Output (PSO) and I/O expansion board

Automation1

The XC2 is a part of the user-friendly Automation1 motion control platform, which includes the following:

Better Control. More Precision

The XC2 connects to the Automation1 Intelligent Software-Based Machine Controller (iSMC) controller over fiber-optic HyperWire®, the fastest, highest-throughput communication bus in motion control.

You can use the XC2 PWM amplifiers to control brushless AC, brush DC, voice coil and stepper motor types at up to 100 VDC operating voltage and 10 A peak current capability.

Standard features for the XC2 include STO, a data array consisting of more than 4 million 32-bit elements (>16.7 MB), dedicated home and end-of-travel limit inputs, and an enhanced current sense device. Standard encoder support includes square-wave and absolute encoders.

Add I/O to your XC2 with an expansion board containing analog and digital I/O, an added encoder input, and dedicated PSO. Improve the resolution of amplified sine-wave encoders by adding a feedback multiplier.

Effortless Feedback

Aerotech’s standard feedback connector is a 25-pin DB-25 connector, which enables simple, single-cable connectivity for all feedback signals from a servo motor and precision stage combination. The XC2 is offered with or without an integral encoder multiplier, which enables design flexibility based on the resolution required by your application. Absolute encoder support is a standard feature.

Ready to Connect

Two HyperWire connections make it simple to connect the XC2 in a multi-axis configuration with other Automation1 drive hardware. 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 and up to 95 percent efficient.
Capture Process Data

The XC2 collects multiple signals and data items that provide valuable diagnostic and performance information. When coupled with the two Gbps HyperWire bandwidth, you can pull the required data back to the iSMC for easy access via the Automation1 Studio application or the .NET application programming interface (API). Unlike other platforms, you never have to lower your trajectory rates to acquire this valuable data.

Excellent In-Position Performance

Thanks to advanced control techniques and feedback signal processing, the XC2 can control stage in-performance to as low as 0.2 nanometers rms.

System Integration Made Simple

The small form-factor enables compact machine designs, while a four-axis system can be configured with more than 70 I/O points. The XC2 integrates easily with the Automation1 Software-Based Machine Controller (iSMC).
