SPiiPlus, MC4U motion controllers

ACS Motion Control has developed motion control modules ideal for robotic applications. Featuring advanced tuning tools, including FFT analysis as well as profile and variable monitoring that provides quick and easy system setup, The SPiiPlus and MC4U control modules optimize motion to provide a high-performance solution, says ACS.

ACS' SPiiPlus and MC4U motion controller series offer flexible application programming using the ACSPL+ multi-tasking language that features 64bit floating point math, vast array handling capabilities and the use of user units. They feature a 20kHz servo update rate and a 2kHz profile update rate for tight position control and synchronization with external processes. The dual-loop control enhances responsiveness in lead-screw and belt driven-based systems. The motion controllers' open architecture design offers a variety of communication options including PCI bus, serial and Ethernet communications. Remote monitoring is available using a TCP/IP Ethernet link. The modules also offer up to eight axis of arbitrary path generation with cubic interpolation (PVT).

Optimized for motion control applications, ACS' powerful software tools provide easy setup, tuning and programming and application simulation. The software enables the implementation of highly complex motion-time-event sequences with accurate positioning and timing. The free motion simulator can be downloaded at
