Delta Computer Systems Inc. announces the immediate availability of the U14 Universal Input/Output module for the company’s RMC200 motion controllers. The new U14 module combines several different input and output types in a single module, increasing configuration flexibility and enabling RMC200 configurations from 2-axis to 32-axis, in 2-axis increments.
The U14 complements the family of other high-density RMC200 I/O modules with a smaller number of a wide variety of I/O types. With the U14, users can add up to two extra control axes, bring in a variety of different reference input signals, or simply add additional analog and discrete I/O, all within a single module. The U14 analog I/O features four 18-bit resolution analog inputs and two analog drive outputs that are software selectable between ±10 V, 4-20mA, or ±20mA. Two high-speed channels are software selectable as Serial Synchronous Interface (SSI), Magnetostrictive Start/Stop or Pulse-Width Modulated (PWM), or Quadrature Encoder inputs. Two high-speed discrete inputs provide homing or registration for the high-speed channels. Finally, there are four configurable, individually-isolated discrete 24 Vdc I/O points.
Pre-wired cables are available with U14-compatible terminal blocks on one end and pigtails on the other end to simplify and shorten the time required for RMC200 installation.
According to Steve Nylund, Delta’s CEO, “Delta Computer Systems is committed to leading the electrohydraulic motion control industry with powerful, easy-to-use products. The Universal I/O module furthers this mission by enabling machine designers to optimize the RMC200 to best meet system requirements. The U14 module is backed by Delta’s zero-obsolescence policy, 2-year warranty, free 24/7 factory support, and our freely-distributed RMCTools configuration, programming, and monitoring software.”
The RMC200 is Delta’s newest and most capable controller, handling up to 32 axes of closed-loop position and/or pressure control. Other members of the RMC motion controller family include the RMC150, which supports up to eight axes, and the RMC75, which controls one or two axes. All the controllers use the powerful RMCTools software.
