ACS Motion Control, Eden Prarie, MN, has developed a low-cost, small-footprint approach for machine control. Designated the SPiiPlus LF-CM, the machine controller provides multi-axis integrated control and up to 64 additional nodes via CANOpen network extension. The controller includes a logic controller programmable in any of the standard 5 IEC61131-3 languages, with an update rate of 1ms.

The SPiiPlus LF-CM amplifiers utilize a bus voltage of 60Vdc and have a maximum output voltage of 53V. With a continuous output current of 4A per axis, the controller provides accurate machine control. The controller has automatic drive protection and controls single- and three-phase motors and two-phase/stepper motors with encoders.
