'Out of the box' motion controller makes light work of system building. (Plant & Equipment).
The new product comes packaged in a rugged wall- or panel-mounting bookstyle metal case of a new design which simplifies installation and complements Baldor's Flex and Flex+ ranges of AC brushless servo motor drives. The controller integrates its own 24V DC power supply for easy set-up and installation.
Based on a fast 32-bit floating point DSP, NextMove BX2 may be populated with 2-, 3- or 4-servo motor axis control channels, each capable of performing closed-loop control with a 250-microsecond update capability. Up to 256 Kbytes of flash EPROM is available for firmware, with up to 256kbytes of on-board RAM to speed software execution. Also included are RS232 and RS485 ports, and two CAN fieldbus channels for linking with remote drives and/or I/O - simplifying system building and expansion - with support for the CANopen protocol.
Other features include enough in-board I/O to satisfy many common machine or automation tasks, and compatibility with MintMT, which simplifies application programming by providing ready-to-use commands for many sophisticated motion control tasks.
