Zaber Technologies Logo

 

  • Universal drive allows control of 1, 2, 3, or 4 axes, including bipolar stepper motors, linear motors, BLDC motors, or voice coil motors with up to 6 Arms (10 A peak) per phase
  • Allows different control modes, including independent axis control with trapezoidal velocity profiles or interpolated multi-axis control with line, arc, or circle primitives
  • Uses Auto Detect to identify and configure attached Zaber Technologies Auto Detect peripherals
  • High speed single-ended quadrature encoder input and 3 limit switch inputs per axis
  • 4 isolated digital inputs, 4 isolated digital outputs, 4 analog inputs, and 1 analog output
  • Multiple communications options: RS-232 and USB
  • Intuitive ASCII protocol, programmable triggers, and macros simplify complex automation tasks
  • Designed for easy mounting to panels, breadboards, lab benches, and enclosures
  • Axes can be locked together to move simultaneously as if they were a single axis, carrying out all motion in parallel
  • E-Stop input allows for immediate interruption of power to the motor(s) in an unsafe situation
  • Internal regenerative resistor dissipates excess power during hard braking which can be augmented with an external regen resistor if required

 

Features:

1. Universal drive with cycle-by-cycle current control and advanced motion algorithms.
2. Run stepper motors, linear motors, BLDC motors, and voice coil motors up to 6 Arms per phase.
3. Four opto-isolated digital inputs.
4. Four opto-isolated digital outputs.
5. Four non-isolated analog inputs.
6. LEDs indicate the status of the controller and each axis.
7. Indexed knobs provide convenient manual control.
8. Programmable triggers based on time, distance, settings or inputs for stand-alone operation.
9. Multiple units can be daisy-chained and controlled via serial port. Power can also be shared in the chain.
10. Multiple mounting options for attaching controller to panel, optical breadboard, or electronic cabinet.
11. Integrated USB 2.0.
12. E-Stop input allows the axes to be powered down in an emergency.
13. Built-in and external regen resistors to handle extreme deceleration conditions.

 

The X-MCC is Zaber Technologies’ full feature multi-axis universal drive controller and is available in 1, 2, 3, and 4 axis options. The universal drive is capable of controlling stepper motors, linear motors, BLDC motors, and voice coil motors on any axis. Each axis may be equipped with its own encoder (digital or analog, single-ended or differential) and up to three limit sensors, including home and away.

When connected to the X-MCC, Zaber Technologies’ Auto Detect peripherals will be automatically identified and the axis will be configured with optimized drive settings for the specific device. No additional user input is needed.
