ACS Motion Control's SPiiPlus 3U motion controller uses a distributed multi-processor architecture that runs on an onboard RTOS, offering a fixed 20 kHz servo update for every axis and guaranteed deterministic control. Like the rest of the SPiiPlus line, the 3U includes standard Ethernet and serial communications and hardware position compare and capture. It also comes with development tools, including a full software motion simulator and FRF analyzer. Options include integrated SIN-COS interpolators and Input Shaping™. It is useful for semiconductor, FPD, biomedical and industrial automation equipment.
