APCI-8008

The PCI motion control board APCI-8008 is suited for the control of up to 8 servo- or stepper motor axes. The intelligent board is based on a RISC processor and can process up to 4 stand-alone user programs. It has 2 Ethernet interfaces, one of them can be used as EtherCAT interface. Each axis channel allows the connection of incremental-, SSI and EnDat encoders as well as end and reference switches. Through software functions, the following control tasks are possible: Linear, circular, helical, spline and CAD interpolation. The board is suited for applications such as optical component measurement, laser processing machines, tube welding machines, SMD component mounting machines, etc. 64-bit drivers for Windows 8/7/Vista/XP and Linux as well as programming samples are included, real-time drivers for Windows and Linux are available on request.

Description

The board APCI-8008 for the PCI bus is used for the control of up to 8 servo or stepper motor axes through a PC. With this intelligent and flexible board, many control tasks from simple to complicated can be realised. The board has three stepping/direction output channels (D/A channels, 16-bit). They are optically isolated from the digital current supply and are used for the control of commercially available power amplifiers connected as speed controlling devices or current regulators.
Incremental encoders, SSI encoders and EnDat encoders as well as end and reference switches can be connected to each axis channel. Digital PID filters with forward compensation and optional Notch filters are also involved in the axis control. The “open” controlling concept of the APCI-8008 is intended in the first place for manufacturers of special-purpose machines and users who need a flexible integration as well as a CNC solution.

Features

Hardware/properties

  • Intelligent board based on a 64-bit RISC processor
  • Positioning of up to 3 axes either with servo or stepper motors. Mixed operating of servo and stepper motors possible. Up to 8 axes with slave board
  • Interface for commercially available power amplifiers
  • All input and output channels are optically isolated
  • A multiple-axis system can be realised by inserting several APCI-8008 in the same PC.
  • 2 Ethernet interfaces incl. one which can be used as an EtherCAT interface

Software

  • Linear, circular, helical, spline and CAD interpolation
  • Point-to-point movement with independent control of each axis
  • Function library for .NET, Pascal, C-Basic, Borland Delphi, Borland C++, Visual Basic, Visual C++, LabVIEW
  • Programming through a PC application software or stand-alone (a compiler similar to pascal is supplied with the board)
  • The operating program can be easily adapted to specific requirements using program modules supplied with the board (e.g. GEAR, SCANNER, ELCAM)
  • User programs created with the compiler can be processed automatically
  • Multitasking: the board can simultaneously process up to 4 user programs

APPLICATIONS

Measurement device for clutch discs

A plunger gets down until it reaches the clutch disc. The plunger is turned and thereby force and distance are measured.

 

 

 

 

 

ABS Test bench

One of the important facts to be found out is which force is achieved at which point of the pedal travel.

 

 

Control of rotary folding machines

The scale forwards the weighing data through the digital inputs to the board where data is calculated and classified into weight categories.

 

 

 

Optimisation of the traverse path

A manufacturer of CNC milling machines wants to optimise the traverse path of his machines and their speed and precision.
