Eden Prarie, MN – ACS Motion Control has developed a low-cost, small-footprint approach to complete machine control. Designated the SPiiPlus LF-CM, the machine controller provides multi-axis integrated control and up to 64 additional nodes (axes or I/O) via CANOpen network extension in a fraction of the footprint size of similar products. The controller includes a full PLC, programmable in any of the standard five IEC61131-3 languages with an update rate of 1ms. The SPiiPlus LF-CM is ideal for cost-sensitive multi-axis systems where space is at a premium including biomedical, wafer handling and inspection laboratories, factory automation machinery and servo control applications.
The SPiiPlus LF-CM amplifiers use a bus voltage of 60V DC and have a maximum output voltage of 53V. With a continuous output current of 4A per axis, the controller provides uncompromised accurate machine control. The controller has a fully automatic drive protection and controls 1 and 3 phase motors and 2-phase/stepper motors with encoders.
The machine controller features interface capabilities with many of ACS SPiiPlus’ accessories including HSSI I/O modules, HSSI external drive modules and HSSI absolute encoder modules. Design-in of the SPiiPlus LF-CM is simple with the use of ACS’ terminal breakout kits and DIN-rail mounting kits. The controller comes with a free complete software package and is available for download from the ACS website at www.acsmotioncontrol.com.
