Heason Technology is now supplying the Delta Tau Geo Brick LV packaged eight-axis motion and machine controllers as part of its motion system design and build service. The Geo Brick LV and the newly announced 19inch rack-mount version, the LV-PC, are supplied with eight user-configurable 250W drives for linear or rotary brushed and brushless servos, ceramic motors or stepper motors in any combination, with feedback interfaces that include practically all commercially available types available today. Furthermore, a comprehensive selection of fieldbus and communications options, expandable machine I/O and the powerful PMAC multi-axis motion control engine make the Geo Brick LV family a versatile motion controller for applications where a combination of motor technologies is required - such as packaging machines or complex multi-axis positing systems for research.
The Geo Brick LV's flexibility can also be increased for up to 16-axes of motion control using Delta Tau's fibre optic interface port (MACRO), and higher-power third-party servo amplifiers and stepper drives from Heason Technology's manufacturing partners can be accommodated using on-board analogue outputs or with pulse-and-direction control from digital I/O.
Furthermore, the Geo Brick LV's motion control capability spans simple single-axis point-to-point motion to complex multi-axis motion incorporating forward and inverse kinematics calculations with advanced maths capability. Ensuring ease of control for demanding applications, the powerful multi-tasking motion controller includes 64 user PLCs for asynchronous tasking and two high-speed PLCs that run at servo cycle speeds for tightly synchronised electronic gearbox applications such as flying shear or time-critical monitoring and control.
Heason Technology has used the Geo Brick LV on several multi-axis control system projects for customers including Danfysik, the Danish particle accelerator equipment manufacturer, Diamond Light Source and CERN.
