PITTSBURGH, Oct. 27, 2015 — Aerotech Inc. offers the Ensemble QLe panel-mount nanopositioning piezo drive for coordinated motion between piezo stages and servo axes.
A 456-MHz, dual-core, double-precision, floating-point digital signal processor is featured, providing extreme processing power over a variety of applications including point-to-point motion, linear and circular interpolation, multiaxis error correction, and autofocusing. High-speed interrupts and data-logging capabilities provide a real-time link to external systems.
The QLe also offers high-speed position latching capability and multiaxis position synchronized output for generation of pulses based on actual position feedback in applications such as laser firing and data acquisition system triggering.
For ultraprecise applications, the QLe offers an 18-bit analog input that can be programmatically configured to accept an external feedback sensor or position command. Analog input also allows the high-voltage power amplifier to be controlled directly by an external low-level analog input. The drive also has one 20-bit analog output that can be programmatically configured for position or voltage monitoring at very high resolutions.
