Turn-key rotary table system from IntelLiDrives

Precision rotary stage integrated with digital drive

October 15, 2013


IntelLiDrives, Inc. now offers turn-key solution integrating motorized worm gear rotary actuators with StepNetAC microstepping digital drives.

RTLA Series Rotation Stages provides precision angular positioning combined with high load capacity. They are fitted with stepper motor to enabling angular speed up to 20 deg/s. All RTLA stages are constructed of anodized aluminum with a double row of preloaded bearings that allow for off-center loads in a reduced footprint and improved stiffness without compromising dynamic performance. Precise rotation is ensured by a precision ground and hardened worm gear.

StepNetAC drives run directly on 115/230 AC enabling high speed performance and eliminating the DC power supply. StepNetAC can operate stepper motors as brushless servo motors taking full advantage of the step motor's high torque density while delivering quiet, smooth operation without stalling or lost steps. Sophisticated control modes are available including indexing, point-to-point, cam operation and gearing. Measuring 146 x 119 x 55 mm, Stepnet AC drives deliver 7A peak current.

StepNetAC drives control two-phase stepper motors in networked multi axis systems. The drives operate as nodes on a CANopen bus under the DSP402 CANopen motion control protocol. Embedded intelligence enables each drive to execute point-to-point moves with S-curve profiling. More complex profiles, defined by a series of position•velocity•time points, are executed using polynomial interpolation for best fit contouring. The CANopen DSP402 protocol enables multiple steppers to be synchronized for coordinated multi-axis control.

StepNet modules also function as stand-alone step motors drives, in addition to their CANopen multi axis networking role. When used with a dedicated motion controller, the drives accept step & direction inputs, ±10V commands and A/B quadrature encoder signals for electronic gearing. DeviceNet and an ASCII interface are also provided for seamless integration into PLC systems.

The flexible connectivity and operating modes of StepNetdrives enable stepper motors to be mixed with servo motors in multi axis automation. Designers of packaging, assembly, laboratory, medical and manufacturing automation equipment can now select the best motor for each task.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
