Discover the ACS motion control solutions at the PI booth at Drives & Control 2018

Join Physik Instrumente (PI) on stand D744 at Drives & Controls 2018 at the NEC Birmingham from the 10th to the 12th of April to discover the ACS motion control solutions range.

On display in the UK for the first time, these high performance EtherCAT®-based controllers and multi-axis drives enable the use of various motor types that can be conveniently integrated into a wide variety of high-end and demanding automation applications.


PI will be exhibiting a range of products from the ACS portfolio, including the latest NanoPWM™ amplifiers - offering linear amplifier performance with the power, robustness and cost-effectiveness of a PWM drive - and the LCM laser control module, which allows laser sources operation to be synchronised to motion profiles. Alongside, visitors will be able to see the SPiiPlusES drive node, which enables the addition of more capable motion control to existing EtherCAT automation solutions. Also on the stand will be the innovative motion control solution for laser scribing - a collaborative development between PI, ACS Motion Control and SCANLAB - combining a high speed laser galvanometer scanner with servo-driven stages to offer fast, flexible and precise laser machining, eliminating stitching errors and increasing throughput. The automation platform will be complemented by a small laser demonstrator, as well as a selection of PI's precision micro- and nanopositioning products, and hexapods, and there will be ample opportunities to discuss how the company can apply its systems' capabilities to the demands of specific individual applications.

Visit stand D744 to see how PI can help meet your motion control and precision positioning needs.

EXAIR Cabinet Cooler® Systems are a low cost, easy to install, maintenance free way to cool and purge electronic control panels. EXAIR Cabinet Coolers incorporate a vortex tube that produces cold air from ordinary compressed air - with no moving parts. The compact Cabinet Cooler can be installed in minutes through a standard electrical knockout. NEMA 12, 4, and 4X (IP54 and IP66) Cabinet Coolers that match the NEMA rating of the enclosure are available in many cooling capacities for large and small control panels. NEMA 12 Cabinet Coolers are ideal for general industrial environments where no liquids or corrosives are present. NEMA 4 Cabinet Coolers incorporate a low pressure relief valve for both the vortex tube and cabinet air exhaust. This valve closes and seals when the cooler is not operating to maintain the integrity of a NEMA 4 enclosure. NEMA 4X Cabinet Coolers offer the same protection as NEMA 4 but are constructed of stainless steel for food service and corrosive environments.
