Nov. 17, 2017 – Aerotech says its HEX RC is a 6-axis motion controller ideal for controlling robotic systems like hexapods.
The HEX RC is 4U rack-mountable and compatible with the Automation 3200 (A3200) motion platform. The high-performance processor provides the computing power needed to run up to 32 axes, perform synchronized motion trajectories, manipulate I/O, and collect data at high speeds. The HEX RC features 6-axes of drives capable of controlling a combination of brush, brushless, or stepper motors. It digitally performs both current loop and servo loop closures, promising to ensure the highest level of positioning accuracy and performance. The HEX RC connects and controls up to 26 additional axes of servo, stepper, or piezo-driven stages using the A3200 distributed control architecture.
