Motion controllers deliver servo updates up to 20KHz
ADLINK Technology, Inc. announces the release of its new, top-of-the-line advanced motion controllers, the PCI-8254/PCI-8258, solidly delivering excellent control performance, servo updates up to 20 KHz through hardware-based PID-FF control loop and second-order filters, time-deterministic trajectory and velocity planning, comprehensive application functions, and powerful, easy-to-use diagnostic and control utilities. The PCI-8254/8258 features a superior cost/performance ratio, reducing total cost-of-ownership by 25 percent or more.
ADLINK’s PCI-8254/8258 features hardware-based PID-FF closed-loop control with servo updates at up to 20 KHz, with powerful filter capability, overcoming the effects of generated noise and significantly eliminating mechanical resonance for high-speed and precision-enhanced point-to-point applications in the semiconductor industry. The program download function can execute up to 8 individual tasks simultaneously, guaranteeing control performance in real time, and conserving CPU resources and costs. The PCI-8254/8258 also provides multi-dimensional interpolation, as in 3D linear/circular/spiral interpolation, ideally suited for contouring applications in manufacturing industries, such as laser engraving/cutting, glue dispensing, and others.
The PCI-8254/8258 is also equipped with MotionCreatorPro 2, a Windows-based application development software package. More applicable time-domain and frequency-domain diagnostic tools are integrated into this utility for auto-tuning, frequency response analysis, and motion & I/O data sampling. A Setup Wizard shortens the system installation and evaluation time and allows monitoring of onboard DSP & I/O consumption via a system diagnostics page. Powerful sampling pages and graphic tools deliver real-time motion and I/O status and conduct further motion flow analysis.
The PCI-8254/PCI-8258 is currently available and supports Microsoft® Windows® XP and Microsoft® Windows® 7 (32-bit) operating systems. In addition, 32 additional onboard digital I/O channels (16 DI & 16 DO) can save the expense of a full DI/O card.
