Ormec's XD indexer family expands analog I/O, adding motion control features for new applications and it also features software for complex applications. Courtesy: OrmecThe XD Series Indexer servo drive family by Ormec has expanded I/O capability to include a second analog input and an analog output. This analog ability along with the new motion control modes for Tension Control, Tachometer Feedback and Generator Mode further expands its motion control applications. Brush-type dc motor control capability is added expanding motor control beyond brushless ac motors.

MotionSet configuration and commissioning software for the XD Indexer reduces engineering and start-up time for a variety of additional motion control applications. Tension control mode is used to control web tension on winders, unwinders and nip rolls and is used for stand-alone stations on larger machines. Tachometer Feedback is used in applications such as large wind and unwind applications where brush-type DC motors do not have a position feedback device. Generator mode is used when servomotors are driven by another device and are used as generators to create dc voltage.

Application solutions with the XD Indexer include: Intelligent conveyor control, ultrasonic welding, pick and place, labeling, linear positioning, feed-to-length, flying shear, rotary knife, stamping, pin insertion, drilling, grinding, tension control, and parts retrieval. Multi-axis applications are implemented by interconnecting more than one XD Indexer.

XD Indexers include MotionSet Software, an intuitive interface for simple setup, testing and installation. Intuitive controls such as "drag and drop" I/O assignments, digital scope and menu driven programming make the configuration, debug and installation of complex applications quick and easy. A built-in Motor Wizard simplifies motor configuration providing seamless integration and quick commissioning of most third-party motors.
