The unit is 4U rack-mountable and features six axes of drives capable of controlling any combination of brush, brushless, or stepper motors. It digitally performs both current loop and servo loop closures to ensure a high level of positioning accuracy and performance. It connects and controls up to 26 additional axes of servo, stepper, or piezo-driven stages using the A3200 distributed control architecture. The controller is designed with an ASCII command interface over TCP/IP for control in applications such as beamlines. Alternatively, it can act as a master controller to control other A3200 external drives via the FireWire interface. it accepts amplified-sine or digital encoders. Optional integrated encoder multipliers, up to x4096, ensure high-resolution positioning. An optional six-axis jog pendant permits easy, manual control of the positioning system. In safety critical applications, an emergency stop option with redundant safety relays can be added.
