Beckhoff Automation Compact, multi-axis servo system

The AX8000 dynamic, multi-axis servo system features a modular design and includes various power supply modules, single- and dual-axis modules and a capacitor module. The compact system is 223 mm high and either 60 or 90 mm wide. The EtherCAT-enabled drive system combines FPGA technology with multi-core ARM processors. FPGA-based control algorithms with multi-channel current control technology enable sample and response times of less than 1 µs for current control, as well as velocity control cycle times as low as 16 µs, depending on the configured switching frequency. The minimum EtherCAT cycle time is 62.5 μs.
