  • Multi-Channel, Low-Cost Temperature Controller with ADDED I/O

    SCOTTS VALLEY, CA, June 1, 2018 - Digital Dynamics, Inc. (DDI) manufacturer of state-of-the-art I/O controllers for the semiconductor industry announced the rollout of their Universal EtherCAT Temperature Controller (UTC) which offers high channel count and low cost per channel.

    The Universal EtherCAT Temperature Controller features 16 configurable building blocks that allow extensive customization of the number and type of temperature sensors and control signals provided. For example, the UTC could be configured to provide 64 PID heat loops using digital heater control. Another configuration, might use 32 PID heat loops, 8 analog out control loops, 8 digital cooling loops, with 16 extra digital outputs. Many other variations are possible by selecting desired resolution, filtering, update rate and number of channels. As a bonus, any I/O ports not being used by the heat control loops can be utilized for other control requirements.

    The Universal EtherCAT Temperature Controller interfaces to the production line as an EtherCAT slave, but can also be configured to power-up in a predefined state. User configuration parameters are stored in non-volatile memory and programmed using a configuration application.

     “We designed the Universal Temperature Controller in response to customer requests for a multi-channel temperature controller able to handle various kinds of sensors and heat control schemes,” said Ray Gorski, Vice-president of Sales and Marketing at DDI. “This new controller has up to 64 heat control loops with a spectacular price-per-channel ratio.”

    All types of thermocouples are supported, with 2, 3, or 4 wire RTD or thermocouple inputs. Other features include: 50/60 Hz “phase angle firing” on all DOUTs, which distributes heater loads across the AC power cycle; PID Auto-tuning; set-point ramping; thermocouple resistance measurement for failure prediction; and much more.

    Digital Dynamics, Inc. manufactures and distributes high quality I/O Controllers and related products in Scotts Valley, California.  DDI is an ISO:9001 registered company with over 40 years of design and manufacturing experience, and a worldwide installed base of more than 50,000 advanced electronic control systems.

  • State-Of-The-Art, Multi-Channel I/O Controller

    SCOTTS VALLEY, CA, June 15, 2018 - Digital Dynamics, Inc. (DDI) manufacturer of state-of-the-art I/O controllers for the semiconductor tool industry announced the rollout of their Fusion.IO Integrated EtherCAT I/O Controller for embedded machine control applications. Typical applications include automation of semiconductor and photovoltaic wafer fabrication tools, metrology systems and medical manufacturing equipment. The Fusion.IO Controller offers high channel count, hardware interlocks and EtherCAT connectivity in one low-cost package.

    “The Fusion.IO Controller was the result of customer requests for an I/O controller utilizing the advanced technology of our EtherCAT SuperIOr Controller® but in a single enclosure form factor,” said Ray Gorski, Vice-president of Sales and Marketing at DDI. “We were able to significantly reduce the price of the system, while allowing for future expansion via SuperIOr’s Remote Interface Modules (RIMs).”

    SuperIOr RIMs are extremely fast I/O subsystems configured to support customer-specified sensors and actuators throughout the controlled equipment and are available in various sizes. Each expansion RIM can be configured with multiple plug-in I/O cards specifically designed for machine control applications. The cards support high-resolution analog and fast digital I/O as well as precision temperature measurement and serial bus communications to smart devices.

    The Fusion.IO Controller complements an EtherCAT network by providing fail-safe, hardware-based interlocks and high-speed embedded control. Up to 1000 mixed-signal inputs and outputs can be simultaneously controlled and monitored with sub-millisecond response times. The EtherCAT host computer is thus unburdened from high speed control sequencing, interlocks, and data collection tasks.

    In addition, the system can parse through collected data and notify the host when certain thresholds are reached. Event timing is synchronized with the EtherCAT clock to maintain a high degree of simultaneity with low jitter. The FPGA-based interlocks can be easily reconfigured, virtually eliminating hardware design spins usually required to accommodate process changes.

    Digital Dynamics, Inc. manufactures and distributes high quality I/O Controllers and related products in Scotts Valley, California.  DDI is an ISO:9001 registered company with over 40 years of design and manufacturing experience, and a worldwide installed base of more than 50,000 advanced electronic control systems.
