Motor Controllers / ARIES/LYNX

BRAND : Kohzu

ARIES/LYNX adopted Motionnet, and actualized control up to 32 axes by connecting
LYNX (2 axes slave controller) 15 units at maximum.
Using the touch panel type handy terminal "PYXIS" sold separately, operations such as test run,
adjustment, etc. can be performed easily without PC.


[ Features ]

Adopted Motionnet
Adopting Motionnet, stage control for 32 axes at maximum is possible from a host controller (PC, etc.) through a communication port.
The number of control axes can be extended with 2 axes unit by connecting multiple LYNX units per ARIES.


Motor Driver Discrete Type
Because a motor driver is a separate type, it can be connected to various motor drivers with pulse raw command types as shown next.
? 5-phase stepper motor driver
? 2-phase stepper motor driver
? Servo motor driver
? ? STEP motor driver
Driver box "TITAN" series that system up is possible easily with a cable connection are available.


Linear Interpolation Function
Linear interpolation drive is possible with optional 2 axes or 3 axes.
When a circular arc interpolation function (option) is necessary, please contact our sales department.


Trigger Output
Trigger signal synchronized to either motor pulse or encoder pulse in 2 axes inside ARIES can be output for external measurement
Also, trigger signal with synchronized trigger signal with BUSY (driving) signal, constant signal, at start driving and at end driving,
and optional timing (command issue) can be output.


General Input/Output
There are 8 points on general output signal that can optionally control ON/OFF and on input signal that can monitor the ON/OFF
state respectively, and each is insulated with photocoupler.


RS-232C, Ethernet 2 Types of Communication Port
ARIES is controlled with a command from host controller (PC, etc.) through the communication por t. Two selectable
communication ports,RS-232C and Ethernet, are equipped.


Driving with Handy Terminal, "PYXIS"
Using a touch panel type handy terminal, "PYXIS" (sold separately), stage operation with manual
control is possible. Origin return, absolute position drive, relative position drive, speed table
selection, setting changes of various system parameters, setting changes of each speed table,
and emergency stop with the emergency stop switch are possible.


* Attached a power supply cable is for using in Japan. Please provide it by customer when a different power supply cable is necessary. (~125V)
