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