Parker Releases Aries servo drive motion controller
The Aries Controller is configured, tuned and programmed using Parkers comprehensive ACRView software environment. The ACRView environment also supports Parkers traditional analog multi-axis controls and drives and the ETHERNET Powerlink motionbus system. This versatility now enables machine designers and end-users to take advantage of the high-performance ACR servo control for both single- and multi-axis projects without switching between or relearning different control languages and software environments, says Marc Feyh, product manager for Parkers Electromechanical Automation Division. Benefits of the common control language and software include reduced time to market and lower overall motion system costs.
Motion capabilities of the Aries Controller include absolute and relative motion, jogging, gearing and camming. A secondary encoder input is included for 1½ axis and dual-loop applications, and EnDat absolute encoders are also supported in addition to standard quadrature and Parker Smart Encoders. Drive connectivity includes an Ethernet port for communications, setup, programming and diagnostics and HMI connectivity.
Application development is further enhanced with the use of Parkers recently released ACR MotionCOMponents Tool Kit. The ACR MotionCOMponents Tool Kit is an extensive collection of components and controls to allow a software developer to quickly and easily build a custom user interface for PC-based motion control applications. The tools incorporate a full set of ACR function calls, enabling complete control of the Aries Controller from a PC program.
