MP4U Modular Motion Control System from ACS

ACS Motion Control has developed a modular rack-mounted motion control system that quickly and easily integrates up to eight universal motor drives with power supplies and an optional EtherCAT motion controller to deliver a customized solution. The complete MP4U control system simplifies the development cycle and shortens the lead time for implementing a tailored solution. Completely self-contained in a compact 19" rack-mounted chassis, the MP4U can be a replacement for high power, high cost linear drive based solutions.

The unique MP4U control system can be configured with:

Up to 8 axes of high performance UDM3U drives and/or ultra-high performance NPM3U (NanoPWM) drives
A 48Vdc and/or 96Vdc motor bus voltage power supply
An optional internal motion controller, with optional EtherCAT network slave (DS402 multi-axis drive) functionality is to be released in 2018.

The MP4U drives are EtherCAT slaves that may be managed by either an external motioncontroller, such as the SPiiPlusEC, or by an internal one. The internal controller is to be released during 2018, its functionally is identical to the SPiiPlusEC. 

The MP4U may also include an optional high-speed EtherCAT-to-EtherCAT bridge that enables to connect the entire system as a node in an EtherCAT network managed by any automation controller supporting DS402 protocol (SPiiPlusES functionality).

"The MP4U is a customizable motion control subsystem, ideal for meeting the needs of high end motion control applications such as wafer inspection and metrology equipment," said Jason Goerges, Product Marketing Manager. "The l
ego-like MP4U system offers advanced motion control functionality and flexibility in a compact unit."

The MP4U has a current range of 3.3A / 10A (continuous peak) to 13.3A/40A. The compact unit has a height of 260mm, width of 483mm and depth of 306mm.
