SMC Hydra Motion Controller

For Electromagnetic Motors

PI SMC Hydra
2-D vector motion with linear interpolation, independent single-axis motion
Digital inputs and outputs
Optional: Encoder-based trigger output
Optional: Position capture input: Position detection in real time via digital input
Optional: Dynamic position correction
Joystick operation via CAN bus

Universal digital motion controller

For DC servo and brushless DC motors (BLDC), linear and torque motors (2 / 3 phases), 2-phase stepper motors. 24 V / 48 V DC output voltage, up to 200 W power per channel. Maximum output current 10 A per phase (effective). Sine-commutated operation. Servo frequency 4 kHz.

Extensive functions, software support

Automatic detection of the motor phase. PID controller for position and velocity. Extensive software support, e.g., for LabVIEW, dynamic libraries for Windows and Linux.

Interfaces

Commanding via TCP/IP, RS-232. RM version only: USB as well. Manual operation with joystick via CAN bus (accessory). Digital inputs and outputs for automation. Opto-decoupled inputs, 4 analog outputs.

Factory default options

  • DeltaStar und DeltaStar Eco encoder interface modulesRequired for control of closed-loop drives (rotation or linear encoder). Differential signal transmission for digital (A/B) or analog (sin/cos) encoder signals, inputs for limit switch signals. Please specify when ordering.Trigger options with DeltaStar: Trigger outputs, position capture input (position detection in real time via digital input)Trigger options with DeltaStar Eco: Trigger outputs
  • Dynamic position correctionPosition deviations for a selected configuration of linear or rotation stages are determined with a highly accurate measuring system and saved in a table of corrections in the controller. Correction is also dynamic. Single-axis mapping, only available as factory default in conjunction with a PI positioning system. Please specify when ordering.
