phyMOTION – Motion Controller for High Precision Positioning Applications

The phyMOTION is a modular motion controller for multi axes stepper motor applications. The controller combines PLC functions such as analogue and digital I/Os, a variety of interfaces (Ethernet, Profibus, Profinet, RS232/485, USB, Bluetooth) and motion control functions such as encoder evalutation (Endat, SSI- /Quadrature) or linear and circular interpolation. The phyMOTION offers additional features for scientific and industrial applications in extreme environments. The phyMOTION can operate as a slave device within an already existing PLC infrastructure, as distributed intelligence or as a capable stand-alone motion controller.

APS – High Performance Stepper Motor Power Stage Module

The phytron APS module is a high performance power stage for the operation of stepper motors up to 5 APEAK at 24 - 70 VDC with a shaft power up to 250 Watts. The APS module positions with an actual step resolution of 1/512 (102,400 positions per revolution with with a 200 step motor and encoder). Based on our chopper technology (parameterisable) and by the use of premium components with low resistance, the APS triggers with optimal timing.

The compact APS module is the core of the 1-STEP-DRIVE PLC module (for SIMATIC ET 200®S) and is used as a power stage module for the phyMOTION motion controller.

DMP – The Inertial Damper for Stepper Motors

The DMP is an inertial damper for stepper motors. Adapted on the second shaft end the DMP provides an excellent driving performance over a wide step frequency because of its specific structure. The DMP avoids system resonances and minimises settling times in start-stop operation. The DMP prevents not only vibration induced material fatigue and vibration-induced positioning errors, but also significantly reduces the acoustic noise. The DMP inertial dampers are designed for standard stepper motors. Beside standard sizes the DMP is also available with customised shaft diameters.

Robotics Automation - Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID)
Robotics Automation - Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID)
Accurate measurements and control is essential for every process to be run in a plant. It becomes necessary as it helps in ensuring the processes such as production, distribution and treatment processes which are carried out under the right conditions for the right amount of time and in the right quantities, thus control devices are a crucial part of every industrial process.
