Multi-axis motion system

June 12, 2013

The Technosoft iPOS360x SX multi-axis motion system accepts up to 4 iPOS3602 VX or iPOS3604 VX intelli­­gent drives and provides all the necessary connectors (motor, encoder feedback and I/O signal) for each of them; the drives are connected through a CAN-bus link. An RS-232 link offers access to all drives for setup and testing with a standard PC. Using iPOS drives, the system controls up to 4 DC brushed, rotary or linear brushless or step motors. Technosoft Motion Language programming allows each drive to execute complex motion sequences including setting of various motion modes, I/O signals handling, arithmetic and logic operations, conditional jumps and calls or data transfers between axes.
