APCI-8008 Motion Control for Stepper Motors or Servo

APCI-8008 Motion Control for Stepper Motors or Servo

1 Week Del.

Quick Overview

The APCI-8008 is a PCI bus used for the control of up to 8 servo or stepper motor axes through a PC. With this intelligent and flexible board, many control tasks from simple to complicated can be realised. The board has three stepping/direction output channels (D/A channels, 16-bit). They are optically isolated from the digital current supply and are used for the control of commercially available power amplifiers connected as speed controlling devices or current regulators. Incremental encoders, SSI encoders and EnDat encoders as well as end and reference switches can be connected to each axis channel. Digital PID filters with forward compensation and optional Notch filters are also involved in the axis control. The "open" controlling concept of the APCI-8008 is intended in the first place for manufacturers of special purpose machines and users who need a flexible integration as well as a CNC solution.

Features

Hardware/properties

  • Intelligent board based on a 64-bit RISC processor
  • Positioning of up to 3 axes either with servo or stepper motors. Mixed operating of servo and stepper motors possible. Up to 8 axes with slave board
  • Interface for commercially available power amplifiers
  • All input and output channels are optically isolated
  • A multiple-axis system can be realised by inserting several APCI-8008 in the same PC.
  • 2 Ethernet interfaces incl. one which can be used as an EtherCAT interface.

Software

  • Linear, circular, helical, spline and CAD interpolation
  • Point-to-point movement with independent control of each axis
  • Function library for .NET, Pascal, C-Basic, Borland Delphi, Borland C++, Visual Basic, Visual C++, LabVIEW
  • Programming through a PC application software or stand-alone (a compiler similar to pascal is supplied with the board)
  • The operating program can be easily adapted to specific requirements using program modules supplied with the board (e.g. GEAR, SCANNER, ELCAM)
  • User programs created with the compiler can be processed automatically
  • Multitasking: the board can simultaneously process up to 4 user programs.

Applications

  • Motion control and position measurement (e.g. optical component measurement)
  • Laser processing machines
  • Bonding robots
  • Water-jet cutting machines
  • Tube bending machines
  • Tube welding machines
  • Component mounting machines (SMD)
  • Fibreglass wrapping devices
  • Handling systems for analysis technology
  • Machines for contact lens production
  • Stud welding machines
  • Machines for processing dental prostheses
  • Production quality control
  • Cutting-to-length devices with flying saw
