              AC/DC Servo & Regenerative Drive or Steppers/Microsteppers
INTROL 2100 Series of Controllers are designed for a wide variety of motion control applications. Simplicity, accuracy and reliability are known facts to this family of controllers. Since the basic hardware of the mother device was proven in an industrial environment, many versions were designed based on the same original hardware with minor modifications and new software. This family offers 0 to 10 VDC reference output to Servo/Regenerative Drives for closed loop applications or steps and direction output for Steppers and Microstepper Drives. All versions are capable of referencing (establishing HOME position) with excellent repeatability. In closed loop mode they can accept feedback frequency with up to 50 kHz external or 1 00 kHz internal after x2 logic. In open loop mode they can generate up to 500 kHz frequency which makes them adaptive to both Stepper and Microstepper drives. With Stepper/Microstepper Drives an incremental encoder could be used for Length/Position verification. An electronic tach option is available for each model to use with Regenerative Drives.

Many versions of the ILC have been developed. The original model is a 4 preset with batching. The later models have an active display. Some are designed with selectable registration indexing. All ILC's are programmable on the fly and jumper selectable to follow external frequency (line speed) in continuous product flow applications. ILC's have RS232 Serial communications with status reporting for process control. Although this group of controls is used for incremental indexing they can also be used in absolute type applications. The display can be programmed to read in any unit of measurement with Auto Reset or External Reset to display each length or material usage. Since ILC's are designed for an indexing type application, they provide a programmable pause before imposition output is initiated. The in-position output is programmable to provide a timed one shot output.
This group of controllers are for absolute positioning using incremental encoder position feedback with Servo/Regenerative Drives or open loop with Steppers/Microsteppers. Some IPC's are designed to follow commands through the RS422 Serial port for single and multi axis operation. Some are dual preset, teachable for pick and place type applications while others are more elaborate with a large data memory which can store up to 62 jobs, each up to 16 preset positions with batching and speed for milling type applications. Some others have the same job programming ability mentioned and also include a programmable antibacklash approach to the position. The latest version of the IPC has all the programming capabilities described above with a teach and PLC interface option. Some of the IPC's also have programmable travel limits to avoid tool collision and will establish a reference point with the first position command after power up.
