300 Controller

ASY-CONT-300-8 Series

Motion Controller

Product Description

ASY-CONT-300-8 is a motion controller capable of displaying up to 8 axes and is specially designed to control up to 127 axes when grouped into different configurations in a typical antenna or RCS measurement system for accurate antenna and RCS measurements

The ASY-CONT family of controllers form the core of a distributed control system, where each positioner has its own drive. ASYSOL controllers provide flexibility and support for a variety of motors and position feedback systems. Depending on the requirements, servo, stepper, DC, AC or linear motors of any power level may be used. A variety of incremental and absolute encoders as well as dual loop control are supported.

Remote system diagnostics are supported online and by Ethernet connection.

Full control can be obtained using the front panel, a PC, laptop or tablet.

Options:

Simultaneous movement of two or more axes
Correction tables can be included to improve the positioning accuracy of axes

ASY-CONT-300-8 uses, as a local control unit (LCU), ASYLCU-1000 module which is a WIFI based portable hand-held unit (tablet) connected to the ASYCONT-300-8 controller to allow remote operation of the system.

The ASYLCU-1000 incorporates a friendly interface for selecting up to 8 axes. The unit shows the active axes limit indication, allowing the operator to vary the speed and the direction of the axis movement. It also has the option to select coarse or fine movement.

When ASYLCU-1000 is activated, the control panel of the ASYCONT-300-8 control is disabled for safety reasons. The ASYLCU-1000 can operate in position mode (identical to those in the controller) or in manual mode. The rest of the specifications are the same as for the ASYCONT-300-8.

or the manual mode, ASYLCU-1000 allows to select the axis and speed (coarse, fine and very slow) while with the cursor controls forward and reverse movements with higher or lower speed. The ASYLCU-1000 works via WIFI to an access point placed inside the anechoic chamber.

Full control can be obtained using the front panel, a PC, laptop or tablet.
