  • ACS expands its NanoPWM™ technology based servo drive family to include a rack mount enclosure version that offers a cost-effective replacement to linear drives

    “ACS has developed the NanoPWM family of PWM drives to provide a more compact and economical alternative to linear servo drives for applications such as wafer metrology and inspection, ultra-precision machining for processing of optical components and FPD inspection, that demand the ultimate performance with regards to stand still jitter, low velocity tracking errors and the fastest move and settle. The off-the-shelf NPArm rack-mounted Series is our latest addition to this expanding family, offering a fully integrated package of up to eight NanoPWM drives and power supply that delivers better performance, efficiency and reliability in a smaller package versus linear servo drives” said Ze’ev Kirshenboim, ACS Motion Control President.

    The NPArm includes up to four pairs of two-drive plug-in modules with output current range between 3.3/10A and 13.3/40A (continuous/peak), and a 3.2kW power supply with single or dual output voltages, providing 48V or 96V or both.  Three-phase as well as single-phase servo motors are supported. The current loop can be tuned via DIP switches, or fine-tuned using the ACS’ SPiiPlus MMI Application.

  • The new and unique SPiiPlusES multi-axis controller expands the motion control capability of any EtherCAT automation controller with up to 64 high performance axes …

    ACS Motion Control has launched a unique multi-axis motion controller that includes a high-speed EtherCAT-to-EtherCAT bridge to address the needs of highly demanding modern equipment.
    The SPiiPlusES combines ACS’ powerful motion controller capabilities with an external EtherCAT network master controller. The SPiiPlusES is used both as a node in any EtherCAT Automation Controller network, and as a EtherCAT Master controlling up to 64 axes and thousands of I/O.
    Acting as an EtherCAT node, the SPiiPlusES supports the standard DS402 drive protocol as well as manufacturer specific commands.
    As an EtherCAT Master Controller, the SPiiPlusES also controls up to 64 fully synchronized axes with an EtherCAT cycle rate up to 5KHz. The network can be comprised of any ACS Universal Drive Modules, NanoPWM Drive Modules, I/O modules, as well as third party EtherCAT modules.
    Applications that use an EtherCAT automation controller, such as semiconductor processing, laser micro-machining, electronics manufacturing and digital printing, can benefit from the unique and advanced capabilities of the SPiiPlusES motion controller and ACS drives to enhance accuracy and throughput.

    “The SPiiPlusES delivers high performance motion control capabilities such as advanced profile generation, faster EtherCAT cycle rates, network redundancy, and advanced control algorithms for mechanically coupled systems such as gantries, tripods, hexapods,
    and more, to enhance performance, reliability and machine uptime,” said Jason Goerges, Product Marketing Manager. “The SPiiPlusES significantly expands the motion performance and capabilities of multi axes machines controlled by EtherCAT based automation controllers and PLCs.”
