Aerotech XC4 single-axis PWM drive designed for brushless DC, brush DC, voice coil and stepper motors.
Aerotech released its XC4 PWM digital drive, a single-axis motor drive designed for brushless DC, brush DC, voice coil, and stepper motors at up to 340VDC operating voltage and 30A peak current. All versions are compatible with the Automation 3200 motion platform utilizing the HyperWire motion bus. The digitally closed current loop and servo-loop allows loop closure rates up to 20 kHz as well as digital and analog I/O processing, data collection, process control and encoder multiplication tasks in real time. Standard features include Safe Torque Off (STO), a data array consisting of over 4 million 32-bit elements, digital and analog I/O, one-axis Position Synchronized Output (PSO), dedicated home and end-of-travel limit inputs, and an enhanced current sense device. Encoder support includes square-wave, sine-wave, and absolute encoders.
