Digital controller for 6-axis parallel kinematics

High-performance digital controller for hexapods (6-axis parallel-kinematics) with DC motors. Additional control for two further single axes with integrated ActiveDrive.

Functions

Position input via Cartesian coordinates, coordinate transformation handled by the controller. To simplify integration of the hexapod, the reference system (Work, Tool) can be quickly and easily changed. The real-time operating system prevents jitter and therefore guarantees constantly low response times. Stable, virtual pivot point can be freely defined in space. Data recorder for recording of operating data such as motor control, velocity, position or position errors. Macro programming. An autostart macro allows stand-alone operation. The controller supports motor brakes and absolute-measuring sensors with BiSS interface.

Interfaces

TCP/IP for remote control and remote maintenance. RS-232. USB connection for external input devices (HID).

Additional interfaces (depending on version):

  • Motion stop: The supply voltage of the hexapod drive can be switched off using the external switch connected to the controller. The sensor technology remains active so that position information continues to be available and a reference move is not necessary when the drive is reactivated.
  • Analog inputs

Optional

  • Control via manual control unit
  • Collision checking for restricted space with PIVeriMove software

Extensive software support

PIMikroMove user software. Common command set for all PI positioning systems. Full set of drivers for use with NI LabVIEW. GUI input interfaces, configuration software, and graphically displayed scan routines.

Scope of Delivery

The order is made together with suitable hexapod mechanics. The scope of delivery includes the hexapod, controller with software package, cable set, and power adapter.
