C-867.2U2 PILine® Motion Controller

For Two-Axis Positioning Stages with PILine® Ultrasonic Piezo Motors

Integrated power amplifier with dynamic frequency control
Multifunctional encoder input: A/B, sin/cos, BiSS
Macro programmable for stand-alone functionality
Integrated interfaces: USB, RS-232, TCP/IP, SPI, I/O, joystick
Daisy chain networking
Trajectory support for 1- or 2-D motion patterns

Servo controller and power amplifier

Two-axis benchtop device with special PID controller for PILine® ultrasonic piezo motors. Network capable with up to 16 units on a single interface. Power amplifier for PILine® ultrasonic piezo motors and stages with performance class 1 and 2 piezo motors. Dynamic frequency control for optimum control.

Motion profiles

Point-to-point, trapezoidal velocity profile. User-definable trajectories (e.g., circles, sine curves) from externally fed points.

Interfaces and communication, encoder input

USB, RS-232, TCP/IP, SPI interface for commanding. I/O lines for automation. Connectors for analog and digital joystick. Differentially transmitted A/B signals (TTL) or sin/cos signals (1 Vss). BiSS interface for absolute encoders. Inputs for TTL signals from limit and reference point switches.

Extensive functions, software support

Powerful macro command language. Nonvolatile macro storage, e.g., for stand-alone operation with autostart macro. Data recorder. ID chip detection for fast startup. PID controller, parameter changing during operation. Extensive software support, e.g., for NI LabVIEW, C, C++, MATLAB, Python. PIMikroMove user software.
