Further connectivity potential for the Maestro is available through on-board hardware interfaces that can support customised option boards; for example for high speed encoders, special D2A or A2D devices and sensors etc. For I/O intensive applications a version of the Platinum Maestro motion controller is available with supplementary digital and analogue I/O which is configurable to support additional absolute and incremental encoders, gyros, accelerometers and other specialist sensor device interfacing.
As a fundamental part of its ease of use and fast-time-to-market potential, the Maestro’s seamless interconnectivity with Elmo’s Gold series EtherCAT servo drives allows users a comprehensive choice of power and voltage ratings for DC brush, sinusoidal and trapezoidal brushless motors, and an equally generous selection of feedback devices from incremental and analogue encoders to EnDAT 2.2, SSI and more. Gold series drives also provide safety inputs for Safe Torque Off (STO). Further enhancing the Maestro’s straightforward system integration capability, the drive and motion controller set-up and programming is taken care of with Elmo’s EAS II Tools and its ‘Motion without Programming” concept brings together structural smart building blocks within IEC 61138-3 or its own G-MAS programming environment to allow fast, easy and efficient execution of otherwise complex machine functions.
Heason Technology, on their own part, through its own systems integration capability, can harness all of these features and add value with its own in-house design and build service for high precision positioning mechanics and associated equipment - supplying completely bespoke automated motion and machine solutions.
