An overview of today's approaches for flexible motion control in lab experiments is given. With modern controller design even simple and inexpensive positioners can be utilized to achieve high speed and precision. It doesn't matter which motor technology you prefer: stepper, DC, or BLDC because one controller can drive them all. Multi-axis control, developing custom motion control software for any OS, automatic positioners recognition and using various peripherals are all easy now.
Supported types of motors
One controller, one interface for any type of motor!
• Stepper (rotational/linear)
• BLDC (rotational/linear)
The controller is great at driving all types of stepper motors with a rated winding current of up to 3 A (by request up to 6 A, 48 V) and DC motors with rated current up to 6 A. All you need to do is plug it in, no assembly required.
Multiple controllers can be connected to one computer either via USB ports or through a special hub that provide axis synchronization.
XILab features two user-friendly graphical interfaces, which are designed for positioners control, diagnostic and fine tuning of the motors driven by the controllers.
The control process can be automated with the scripting option that can be used either directly or to speed up the process of customized control program development. XiLab supports multiaxial mode and multidimensional control scripts. It is possible to output motor and controller status in form of charts and save them to a file. XILab software has two types of interfaces: Single-axis control and Multi-axis control.
|It controls all parameters of motion: velocity, acceleration, deceleration, amount of steps (or micro steps) and direction.|
|Controller supports step division up to 1/8 steps (1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 step).|
|Two end switches and one rotation switch can be connected to the controller.|
|Controller is capable to stop motor with deceleration in motion mode (soft stop).|
|Information about status of end switches can be read from controller.|
|Motor current can be switch off or on to disconnect motor safely.|
|Controller turns off the power when signal from one of two emergency switches is received.|
