NextMove ESB-2

Panel mount 8 axis motion controller

NextMove ESBNextMove ESB-2 a compact panel mount motion controller for the control of up to 8 axes - 4 servo, 4 open loop stepper. NextMove ESB-2, coupled with MINT motion programming, offers a high speed and flexible motion controller. On board I/O can be used to control many parts of the machine. This can be further expanded with either ABB's range of CAN I/O modules operating over the CAN bus, or alternatively, CANopen devices conforming to the standard DS401 I/O profile.

Versatile programming is provided by means of MINT - multitasking BASIC, or the supplied ActiveX components for PC based interfaces and is compatible with our MintNC 2.5 axis CAD to motion solution.

For motion control with Ethernet connectivity see NextMove e100

 

Features:

  • Panel mount configuration with two-part connectors and D-type connector for encoder connections
  • 1MByte SRAM for user programs and data
  • 1MByte FLASH for firmware and user program storage
  • 32kByte FRAM for non-volatile parameter storage
  • Product variants available for 3 or 4 axes of servo control and 4 axes of stepper control MicroFlex can be used in step and direction mode for additional 'open loop' servo axes)
  • 20 PNP/NPN opto-isolated digital inputs
    Programmable for hardware limits, home input, stop input and error input. 4 of the inputs can be programmed for high speed capture of position with 1 microsecond
  • 12 PNP opto-isolated digital outputs
  • 24V/150mA relay output to signal system error conditions
  • 2 x 12-bit analog inputs
  • 12-bit analog output for 3 axis variant
  • Two auxiliary encoder interfaces for position following or position verification with 3-axis servo variant. One additional auxiliary encoder interface for 4-axis servo variant
  • USB programming interface
  • RS232 (115,200 Baud) and (optional RS485)
  • CAN interface for I/O expansion and HMI interfaces. Can be used to provide full peer-to-peer networking capabilities with other MINT based controllers
  • Multi-tasking programming capability with MINT-MT. Number of tasks limited only by available memory
  • Comprehensive move types including: linear, circular and helical interpolation; software cams; flying shears; splines; synchronization with positional offsets and virtual axes
  • ActiveX libraries supplied free of charge
  • Compatible with MINT NC and HPGL
  • RoHS compliant
