CN2128 SE

CODE CN2.3

Tpa CN2128 SE numerical control, up to 128 axes, EtherCAT, MECHATROLINK-II

CN2128 SE is a high-performance numerical control, with a 110/230 Vac power supply, PCI-E/PCI internal bus, and Windows 7 Embedded and Interval Zero RTX operating systems, that can be installed in a wall-mounted electrical enclosure.

It works connected to a supervisory unit via a dedicated Ethernet network; you can place the CNC in an electrical enclosure, managing remotely from the dashboard with the user interface. This system is particularly suited for large machines, that control a large number of axes (roughly up to 128 nodes), or require a high computing power to generate paths with complex algorithms.

The system can accommodate several fieldbuses, depending on the combinations of PCIe/PCI boards in the CN2128 SE. It is possible to connect more than one CN2128 SE to the same supervisory unit; this can provide a modular control system, particularly apt for a machine line or a large, complex working centre.

Albatros is the automation development and debugging environment (minimum v 3.2), hosted in the supervisory PC.

General Features

  • High-performance numerical control, expandable with PCI-e/PCI boards;

  • the system can support up to 5 PCI boards, 1 16x PCI-e board, and 1 4x PCI-e board; each must be standard-size, in compliance with PCI Express specifications;

  • CE certification conform to EMC standards.

EtherCAT function

code CN2.3.03

  • The EtherCAT function is carried out through Tpa implementation of the EtherCAT fieldbus master;

  • the implemented application protocol is the official standard CoE (CANopen over EtherCAT);

  • the EtherCAT bus uses a standard 100BASE-TX Ethernet cable (Cat 5e or higher), that allows for a distance between devices of up to 100 m;

  • transmission cycle time: 1 ms until 32 nodes (I/O and/or drives), 2 ms until 64 nodes, 4 ms until 128 nodes;

  • the drive parameters can be written and read;

  • communication and drive diagnostics in real time.

MECHATROLINK-II function

code CN2.3.01

  • The MECHATROLINK-II bus consists of a half-duplex serial communication at 10 Mbit/s through a single twisted pair, shielded and terminated, with impedance as provided for in MECHATROLINK-II specifications;

  • the implemented protocol is the official drive standard MECHATROLINK-II;

  • options on cycle time (real-time): for each channel, 1 ms until 8 drives, 2 ms until 20 drives, 4 ms until 30 drives;

  • the drive parameters can be sent or read;

  • communication and drive diagnostics in real time;

  • standard PCI board to implement the MECHATROLINK-II fieldbus.

DualMech function

code CN2.3.04

  • The MECHATROLINK-II bus consists of a half-duplex serial communication at 10 Mbit/s through a single twisted pair, shielded and terminated, with impedance as provided for in MECHATROLINK-II specifications;

  • the implemented protocol is the official drive standard MECHATROLINK-II;

  • options on cycle time (real-time): for each channel, 1 ms until 8 drives, 2 ms until 20 drives, 4 ms until 30 drives;

  • the drive parameters can be sent or read;

  • communication and drive diagnostics in real time;

  • standard PCI board to implement the MECHATROLINK-II fieldbus, 2 MECHATROLINK-II channels to connect the drives, that operate at different frequencies and connect up to 30 axes per channel (max. 60 axes).
