Schneeberger has introduced the NanoC line of modular, multi-axis servo motion controllers used for nanometric position control. Featuring a high-performance, multi-processor architecture, the line offers a fully integrated drive system with high-speed motion control, good velocity ripple control, nanometric stability and position control, along with real-time operation and safety functions. It uses high-bandwidth control loops up to 50 kHz, as well as advanced motion control tools and FFT/Bode analysis. The low-noise linear servo amplifier uses a programmable, digital current loop and drives a three-phase brushless servo motor over a plus or minus 10-V interface with 5-A continuous/10-A peak current. The device uses SinCos or quadrature encoder input with an internal encoder multiplier up to x16384. It may be purchased alone or as a complement to the company’s custom line of multi-axis positioning stages.
