While the PAC
is Parker's all-in-one machine controls solution that combines PLC, HMI, and motion control (and robotics!) functionality into a single device, PAM
is the single integrated development environment (IDE) used to program it.
For highly accurate gantry positioning tables, where two motors (each with its own feedback) are used to control an axis, ACS Motion Control has developed unique and powerful algorithms that provide an unprecedented levels of position accuracy, speed stability, and settling time.
Two separate axes are controlled as one gantry axis, improving stability in the servo control loops
Multi Input Multi Output (MIMO) control algorithm provides higher system bandwidth, improving system performance
Ability to auto-align the gantry pair through software to compensate for hardware misalignments
Flexibility to be deployed in stiff and loose gantry systems
This video demonstrates how to keep a large fleet of mobile robots running 24/7 through a single PC based user interface.
Nabtesco Rotary Actuator AF Series
Evolving into All in One
The AF Series was created to achieve automation as simple and quickly as possible. This has been achieved by integrating precision reduction gear RV with servomotors into a simple, compact design. The resulting high quality unified drive section ensures safety, comfort, and a sense of security.
