Aerotech’s Latest Automation1 Release Offers More Flexible and Dependable Machine Setup
PITTSBURGH, October 18, 2023 – Aerotech Inc., a global leader in precision motion control and automation, makes the Automation1 motion control platform more powerful and user friendly with every release. Version 2.6 brings the sockets interface’s official release, a more intelligent Machine Setup and Configure workspace, additional MachineApps customization options, API improvements and more. “We want users to easily take control of their motion systems’ performance and of their teams,” said Daniel Hong, controls product manager at Aerotech. “That drives every Automation1 improvement we make. Automation1 users can confidently unlock a whole world of precision they might not have been tapping into before.” Recent developments in the Automation1 motion control platform include: Easier connectivity. Connect to the Automation1 controller via Modbus TCP/IP or by a simple sockets interface. Modbus TCP/IP is now supported on both PC- and drive-based (as beta) hardware control platforms. The sockets interface allows users to communicate between the Automation1 controller and other devices over TCP. Improved tuning techniques. The new MultisinePlus frequency response type enables better tuning of high-friction systems and systems with known signal-to-noise issues. This EasyTune feature is now the default response type in the Automation1 Studio’s frequency response tool. Configure systems faster. Work faster and smarter with improved configuration tools. The Machine Setup configuration wizard has added intelligence targeted at system upgrades and configuration changes. After initial setup, the Machine Setup tool tracks changes and updates appropriate items only, enabling your team and reducing errors. User-focused improvements. Version 2.6 adds features developers value, including better HMI brand management, more user-accessible information, improved tools for writing and reading files, improved software wizards and several AeroScript programming language improvements. Power user API improvements. Stream long program files to the controller easily using the new Command Queue capabilities for the .NET and C APIs. Controller help documentation has been added for the LabVIEW instrument driver.

Premier Precision Motion Control for Less. Aerotech launches compact, economical single-and multi-axis servo drives.
PITTSBURGH, January 16, 2024 – Aerotech Inc., a global leader in precision motion control and automation, today introduced the new Automation1 XA4 and iXA4 PWM servo drives. These streamlined, economical single- and multi-axis panel-mounted servo motor drives include a full motion controller and I/O expansion options. Future options will include a four-axis version, I/O expansion and DC motor supply. “The new Automation1 XA4 servo drive series is a game-changer in motion control,” said Daniel Hong, controls product manager at Aerotech. “These powerful, compact drives open up new possibilities for machine builders and automation solution providers. With options ranging from one to four axes, the XA4 and iXA4 redefine precision motion control, making Aerotech quality and precision accessible across every industry,” noted Hong. Automation1 XA4 1- or 2-Axis PWM Servo Drive The simplified dual-axis XA4 brings precise, powerful control to multiple axes of motion in the same machine footprint. Deploy XA4 servo drives with the user-friendly Automation1 motion control platform to unlock faster build times, improved quality and higher throughput in less development time. It communicates to Automation1 PC- and drive-based controller products over the HyperWire® motion bus, supports multiple feedback device types and includes on-board memory for high-speed data capture and process control. Automation1 iXA4 1- or 2-Axis PWM Servo Drive with Motion Controller The iXA4 brings Automation1’s precision to multiple axes of motion, reduces machine footprint and eliminates the need for an industrial PC. Control 12 HyperWire® axes of motion and run up to nine user tasks on the embedded Automation1 controller. As a drive, the iXA4 supports multiple feedback device types and includes on-board memory for high speed data capture and process control. About Automation1 The XA4 and iXA4 are part of the user-friendly Automation1 motion control platform, which includes development software, controls, motor drives and the Fiber-Optic HyperWire® Communication Bus.
