NextMove ES Motion Controller from ABBNextMove ES Motion Controller from ABB

NextMove ES is a compact EuroCard format motion controller for the control of up to 6 axes of control (2 servo, 4 open loop stepper). Using the latest generation 32-bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), NextMove ES, coupled with MINT-MT, 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 NextMove ES 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. NextMove ES is available with RS232 (or optional RS485) and USB programming ports


Features

  • Eurocard 3U rack mount configuration. Optional backplanes available with screw terminations
  • 32-bit 120MHz Digital Signal Processor (DSP)
  • 2MByte SRAM for user programs and data
  • 2MByte FLASH for firmware and user program storage
  • 32kByte FRAM for non-volatile parameter storage
  • Controls 2 axes of servo & 4 axes of stepper, or: 6 axes of servo - when used with FlexDrive or MicroFlex in step and direction mode
  • 17 uncommitted non- 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.
  • 11 uncommitted digital outputs. 5V open collector Darlington
  • Programmable for drive enable and high speed position compare output
  • 24V/150mA relay output to signal system error conditions
