Aerotech's Ensemble CP stand-alone controller provides up to ten axes of synchronized motion in a distributed network of panel-mounted drives. For desktop and rack-mount installations, the Ensemble CP is offered in a stand-alone 6-axis unit with integrated drives. Three additional panel-mounted linear or PWM drives may be added externally to the six-axis unit for up to nine axes of motion control. Ensemble CP controls Aerotech brushless, brush, or stepper motors or stages in any combination. The parameter interface allows integration to third-party motors and stages. The controller encoder interface includes TTL quadrature input or analog encoder input. Multiple Ensemble CP controllers can be controlled from a single Windows® PC through Ethernet or USB, allowing more than ten axes of motion to be operated from one host PC.
The Aerotech EtherNet/IP™ interface enables AB PLCs (MicroLogix, CompactLogix™, or ControlLogix) to be integrated directly with the Ensemble CP. Motion can be directly programmed in the RSLogix 5000 environment or separate programs can be written on the controller and triggered from the AB PLC. Aerotech has two interfaces: ASCII and Register.
