Factory Automation And Controls

Overview

DSPMC 7763 is an Ethernet based motion controller that controls up to 8 Analog ±10V Servo Drives and 8 Step and Direction Digital Drives. The DSPMC provides excellent integration with Mach4 CNC software proven by several hundred end users since 2008. Utilizing the latest Software and Silicon technology, the DSPMC offers a comprehensive set of features for your CNC retrofitting and Motion Control applications. Future expansion will allow controlling Ethercat servo drives and I/O devices via 7729 adapter board.

CNC Features

  • MPG Control
  • Probing.
  • Lathe Threading.
  • Rigid Tapping
  • Manual Mode
  • Closed-loop operation automatically compensates for backlash.
  • Homing Using Home Sensor and/or Index Pulse.
  • Rotary Axis Homing with Index pulse.
  • Use One Home Sensor Input for all axis, or separate Home Sensors for each axis.
  • Option to use Limit switches as homing sensors.
  • Feedrate Override above 100%.
  • Instant FeedHold
  • Slave Axis Support.
  • PID Tuning Graph.
  • Spindle Orientation and Tool Change Support
  • Multiple Spindle control type: 0-10v, ±10V, Servo Spindle, GCode Spindle (Allows easy integration of Tool Changer).
  • High Speed 3D machining support.
  • Mach4 scripting support for custom motion, I/O logic, and Tool-Changer programming.

Model Differences

Model Step/Direction Analog Outputs Analog Inputs
7763D 8 Channels None None
7763S 8 Channels 8 Analog Outputs None
7763M 8 Channels 8 Analog Outputs 8 Analog Inputs

Most CNC applications will only require the base unit DSPMC 7763S to control analog and digital drives. However, the 7763M version has eight analog inputs channels for reading analog signals. The 7763D can save you some money if you do not require any analog input or output signal.

Mach4 CNC Controller

Mach4 is the latest PC-based software solutions for CNC applications. When paired with the DSPMC controller, creates a state of the art CNC solution for machine-shop and industrial application.

The DSPMC controller supports Mach4 Software via the plugin provided on this page. For the official production release, please refer to the "DSPMC Support Files" section below.

Mach Software and DSPMC setup:

  1. Copy the HiCON plugin for Mach4 to the plugins folder in the Mach installation directory ("C:\Mach4\plugins").
  2. Perform all necessary configurations via the user friendly config screens.
  3. For more information, consult the Mach4 Integration manual available for download below.

Optional Components for DSPMC System

Advanced and production applications can also benefit from these add-ons:

DSPMC-MACRO[1]: This software feature allows the user to write custom programs (In C language)which can be downloaded to the controller for fast execution. Advantages of DSPMC-Macro Include:

  • Real-time program execution
  • Ultra-fast I/O manipulation
  • Extends Mach4 Functionality
  • Standalone Operation (No PC Control)

DSPMC-SNT[1]: This software feature is a specialized tool for EDM Machines. It allows the DSPMC to read an analog input at an ultra-fast scan rate and activate a digital output at the moment the voltage reading goes above or below a configured threshold. This feature is available only on the DSPMC 7763M version as analog inputs are required.

7737 Board: The pn7737 Differential Step/Direction and Encoder Board allows access to the Step/Direction and more Encoder channels and allows a simple plug-and-play setup (with any standard RJ45/Ethernet cable) when used in tandem with a Drive Interface Board (EPx-DIB) for Maxsine AC Servo Drives.

7535 Board: The I/O Termination board (7535P or 7535N) provides additional optically isolated digital I/O. Each board has 16 input terminals and 8 output terminals. All I/O terminals are clearly marked for quick and easy installation.

7729 Board: The pn7729 EtherCAT Adapter Board is an extension to the DSPMC that is designed as a solution for EtherCAT capabilities with Mach4. EtherCAT greatly simplifies wiring Servo Drives to the motion controller while maintaining command and feedback signal integrity.
