Universal drive controller, 1 axis, with IO, up to 6 A per phase X-MCC1
The X-MCC is Zaber’s full feature multi-axis universal drive controller and is available in 1, 2, 3, and 4 axis options. The universal drive is capable of controlling stepper motors, linear motors, and voice coil motors on any axis. Each axis may be equipped with its own encoder (digital or analog, single-ended or differential) and up to three limit sensors, including home and away. When connected to the X-MCC, Zaber’s AutoDetect peripherals will be automatically identified and the axis will be configured with optimized drive settings for the specific device. No additional user input is needed. The controller provides for 4 channels each of isolated digital inputs, isolated digital outputs, and non-isolated analog inputs. There is also a single analog output channel available. An intuitive ASCII interface allows the user to easily communicate with the device using our free software, either Zaber Motion Library with APIs for several popular languages or Zaber Launcher. Third-party terminal programs that can communicate over a serial port can also be used. The X-MCC uses lines, circles, arcs, and helices as geometric primitives while obeying velocity, acceleration, and timing constraints. The result is an easy-to-use set of 2D commands and a seamless transition between lines and curves. An E-Stop interface is available on the X-MCC series that will stop current flow to all motors. The E-Stop is implemented fully in hardware to guarantee torque is removed from all motors. The X-MCC series is compatible with all of Zaber's existing X-Series products. When daisy-chained with several units, the X-MCC can also share a single power supply with multiple X-Series products. Universal drive allows control of 1, 2, 3, or 4 axes, including bipolar stepper motors, linear motors, or voice coil motors with up to 6 Arms (10 A peak) per phase Allows different control modes, including independent axis control with trapezoidal velocity profiles or interpolated multi-axis control with line, arc, or circle primitives Uses AutoDetect to identify and configure attached Zaber AutoDetect peripherals One high speed differential quadrature encoder input, one single-ended encoder input and 3 limit switch inputs per axis 4 isolated digital inputs, 4 isolated digital outputs, 4 analog inputs, and 1 analog output Multiple communications options: Ethernet, USB, and RS-232 Intuitive ASCII protocol, programmable triggers, and macros simplify complex automation tasks Designed for easy mounting to panels, breadboards, lab benches, and enclosures Axes can be locked together to move simultaneously as if they were a single axis, carrying out all motion in parallel E-Stop input allows for immediate interruption of power to the motor(s) in an unsafe situation Internal regenerative resistor dissipates excess power during hard braking which can be augmented with an external regen resistor if required Lead Times: Min: 1-5 Days Max: 1-5 Days Zaber engineers are here to help and will respond in 1 business day of your inquiry. Get started in minutes with the Zaber Launcher application. Powerful, easy to use, open-source API supporting multiple languages with clear documentation and sample code.
