Now stocked by Lastek , Aerotech's Soloist SC spindle controllers are single-axis controllers that combine a power supply, amplifier and velocity controller in a single package.
These spindle controllers offer superior velocity control, which is achieved by the combination of a high performance control loop and a linear power amplifier.
To ensure optimal rate stability, they are tuned to a specific spindle, and can be set up to run in standalone mode or to accept commands from a host controller.
The included IDE software provides a clear, easy to use Windows-based platform for users, with powerful diagnostic, development and analysis tools for OEMs and end-users alike.
Soloist SC spindle controllers also feature:
- host-mode operation, allowing commands to be sent with a PC via Ethernet or USB for immediate execution
- Ethernet or USB provide network access
- velocity control for brushless spindles; and
- velocity commanded through CLK/DIR or via ASCII commands.
