Q.series EC C101 Module

EtherCAT-based Multi-axis Servo Controller

The Q.series EC C101 combines powerful System-on-a-Chip computing with the flexibility of EtherCAT communication. This unique design greatly simplifies the implementation of reliable high-speed multi-axis servo control solutions. It has never been so easy to create an integrated control and measurement solution using the Q.series EC C101 control module in combination with the Q.series EC measurement modules.

Now you can benefit from market-leading servo control performance, combined with a common, highly integrable platform for control and measurement!

I/O Specification

  • 2 inputs for bridge and inductive sensors
    load cell, strain gage, pressure sensor, LVDT
    ±2000 mV/V max., 8 user-selectable input ranges, 18 bit, selectable DC/CF bridge excitation, 4.8 kHz carrier frequency, 500 VDC galvanic isolation
  • 1 voltage input
    Potentiometer, external function Generator
    ±10V, 18 bit, 500VDC galvanic isolation
  • 1 SSI serial interface (RS-422)
    Absolute encoder or Temposonic®
  • 1 servo driver output
    ±160 mA max., 8 user-selectable ranges, ±10 VDC
  • 4 digital inputs and outputs
    PLC functionality for monitoring system status and switching pilot, low pressure and high pressure levels

The programmable C101 allows for installing custom-designed control loops that best match the application. The C101 can also be delivered with a pre-engineered control loop.

Key Features

  • Individual control modes for force, displacement and auxiliary
  • Three stage servo valve control
  • Command optimization through prefiltering
  • Piston area compensation, dither
  • Boundary control for active hard stop and breakout force limits
  • Ki enabled with pressure
  • Fail-safe and programmable shut down behavior
  • Multiple tuning parameter sets
    to allow for best possible control performance for each scenario.
  • Structural decoupling
    Feedforward disturbance compensation to eliminate cross-coupling induced errors, increasing test speed.
  • Bumpless control mode switching
    Instant mode switching between force, displacement or auxiliary control.
