Parker ACR7000 Series Multi Axis Motion Controllers
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. The new release of ACR7000 adds multi-axis servo drive/controller variants supported by an update of the Parker Motion Manager software development tool.
Up to eight digital servo 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.
- Four and eight axis models
- 800MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor
- Ethernet communications, RJ-45 Connection
- 24 to 48VDC motor input power
- Separate 24VDC control power
- Digital servo drives with up to 5A continuous and 16A peak current
- Encoder inputs supporting quadrature and BiSS-C absolute encoders
- Onboard I/O including analog inputs, high-speed digital inputs and encoder-based outputs
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.
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
