Multi-Axis Motion Controllers

Parker Logo

Product Overview

Cross company is excited to offer our customers the new ACR7000 series of controller products from Parker. The ACR7000 family combines performance, value and scalability that exceeds OEM expectations. Built on the established ACR9000 platform, Parker has reimagined hardware designs, making it ideal for tabletop and laboratory-style instruments. Four micro-stepping drives are integrated with a multi-axis motion controller into a single package, saving space, eliminating cabling and reducing installation complexity. With the power and flexibility of the AcroBasic language, the ACR7000 series is the perfect building block for customer-specific motion system solutions.

ACR7000 Series Multi-Axis Motion Controllers 1

Hardware Features

  • 800MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor
  • Ethernet communications, RJ-45 connection
  • 24VDC motor input power and separate 24VDC control power
  • Four micro-stepping drives with up to 4Amps for each motor
  • Selectable micro-stepping resolution, up to 51,200 steps/rev
  • Four encoder inputs for optional position maintenance or position verification functions
  • On-board I/O, including high-speed trigger inputs and encoder-based outputs

Software Development Tool – Parker Motion Manager

The EGH was designed to work seamlessly with the UR series for Cobots. As distributors for both Schunk and Universal Robots, Cross can offer an entire setup so your team can with with a single source for your entire project. Take a look at the UR Cobot series available from Cross.

 

New Features Include:

  • Streamlined set-up wizard
  • Product-specific status panels
  • Improved terminal emulator
  • New-look oscilloscope tools
  • Projects stored as single files for easy sharing and archiving

Communications

The Ethernet implementation in the ACR7000 was developed from the IPA and provides outstanding performance in HMI, PC and PLC-based applications. The ComACRServer communication library currently used with the ACR9000 and IPA is also used for the 7000, giving existing customers with PC-based applications a head start. The ACR7000 includes
EtherNet/IP communication with both scanner and adapter functions, enabling connections from PLCs or to extended I/O modules. The ACR7000 also uses EtherNet/IP for peer-to-peer communications, allowing multiple ACR7000s and IPAs to talk to each while exchanging deterministic data.

Programming

The ACR7000 builds on the AcroBasic programming language used in the ACR9000 and IPA. The entire AcroBasic command set is available on the ACR7000, including:

  • Multi-tasking with up to 16 programs
  • Linear and circular interpolation
  • Gearing and camming
  • Hardware and software position captures
  • Encoder-based position output (OOP)
  • Math and logic functions and string handling
