Fanless motion control system for smart machine automation

IBASE Technology has announced the MAI602-M4D80 motion control system that can be used in various factory production applications such as automated optical inspection, semiconductor wafer handling, packaging and material handling systems. The MAI602-M4D80 is powered by 7th/6th Gen Intel Core i7/i5/i3 desktop processors and has a 4-axis motion control PCIe card that meets the performance and positioning accuracy requirements of high-performance servo/step motors.

For use in visual inspection applications, the motion control card has a camera integrated with a position comparison trigger. The system comes with a built-in 80-ch isolated digital I/O card to control and monitor the switches of surrounding digital signals and control the alarm signals.

Another model, "MAI602-B", has two slots (PCIe x8 & PCIe x4 slot) to accommodate different control cards. In addition, the Mini PCI-E on board supports IBASE's Field Bus MotionNET modules for extra I/O and motion control functionalities.

The rugged MAI602-M4D80 is a fanless, compact system designed to operate at an ambient temperature of up to 50 degrees Celsius in a non-airflow environment and has protection against accidental reverse polarity, over voltage or under voltage.

The compact system is designed with fast heat dissipation and easy installation, with enclosure vents that allow airflow to the internal components as well a heatpipe mechanism for fast cooling, effectively lowering system temperature.

To provide ease in user installation of the hardware, the I/O interface of the system and cable routing have been all positioned on the same side.

The system measures 275mm by 140mm by 117mm and can be installed with the provided wall mount bracket or an optional DIN-rail bracket. Flexible rear I/O interface include DVI and DisplayPort display connectors, audio line-out, two serial ports, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, 2-pin power-button terminal block, and a 3-pin 24VDC-in terminal block.

MAI602-M4D80 FEATURES:

  • Supports 7th/6th Gen Intel Core i7/i5/i3 desktop processors
  • 2MB MRAM module (optional)
  • Front removable drive bay for HDD/SSD (supports RAID 0/1)
  • 4-axis pulse command motion control
  • 80 ch. Isolated Digital I/O (48 ch. DI / 32 ch. DO)
  • Over/under/reverse voltage protection
  • Supports DIN-rail mount & wall mount
  • iSMART, iAMT(11.6), TPM(2.0)
  • Compact and rugged design
