The XD-Series allows programming of 32 individual motion profiles, which can be mapped to I/O points, 1 or 2 functions per point, initiated via Modbus/TCP, and chained or looped together. The adaptable I/O, with 14 inputs and 8 outputs, can be mapped to change from position, velocity or torque modes during program execution. Motion can be synchronized with supported machine I/O, allowing for start, stop or trigger speed changes, with inputs at any point in the chain, and user-defined units for axis position speed and acceleration. Using an HMI or optional Fieldbus communication, the XD-Series allows motion parameter adjustments, remote commanded motion and real-time indexer status read capabilities. Communication setup is via USB or Ethernet connections, with Modbus/TCP, Ethernet/IP, CANopen and Profibus-DP options. The XD-Series is available in 115, 230 and 460 VAC input power, with 3 to 60 amp continuous current ratings.
The XD-Series also features a built-in Motor Wizard, which simplifies non-standard motor integration and lets users quickly commission unproven motors. Once the program and motor data are loaded onto the indexer, configuration data is stored both in the indexer and on a removable memory card, simplifying software transfer, duplication requirements, and hardware replacement needs. Software includes extensive support for monitoring and optimizing an application, allowing the application program to be quickly honed to perfection. ORMEC’s software tools can reduce conventional setup efforts, from what typically was days, to a matter of minutes, with the supplied pre-defined “load and go” application templates.
Typical applications for the XD-Series include intelligent conveyor control, pick and place, labeling, flying shear, rotary knives, scanning, high-speed printing, part storage and retrieval, and many others. Also, built-in features of the XD-Series allow it to support otherwise difficult application requirements, such as tension control, dual loop feedback, registration, gearing and others.
