The Keysight 10936B Servo-Axis Board is a programmable, digital servo with built-in motion control algorithms. The combined servo-axis board provides a complete closed-loop positioning solution for Keysight 5527B laser interferometer systems. Outputs include ±10 V analog, pulse-width modulated, and 16-bit digital for a variety of commercially-available motors and amplifiers.
Custom algorithms can be downloaded to tune the servo for application requirements. A trace capability optimizes and verifies system performance. Special features include coordinated multiaxis moves, velocity profiling, buffered position profiling, and drive enable/disable.
Typical Power Requirements (not including receiver): +5V at 2.5 A, +15V at 30 mA, -15V at 45 mA
Selectable Difference Equation:
Proportional, Integral, Difference (PID)
9th Order Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) Filter
User-specified difference equation can be downloaded
Programmal Difference: Equation Coefficients, Powerful TRACE command to aid user in optimizing difference equation and feedforward coefficients
Negative true inputs to turn off Motor Drive outputs
Maximum response time: Sample period (1/sample rate) + 0.3 ms
16-Bit Binary Interface Transfer Rates
Input (Destinations and Commands): 0.1-10 kHz
Output (Position): 0.1-10 kHz
Rates vary depending on data format, system configuration, and servo-axis board setup.
Trace capability simplifies optimization and servo-loop characterization
Customized routines tune the system to your requirements
Automatic environmental compensation available for maximum repeatability
Field or factory installation offers system flexibility
Output position data at up to 10 kHz
Up to six boards per system for maximum design flexibility
Trace Capability: Record up to four system signals, (including desired and actual position) as a move is taking place. Results are displayed on the controller through HP-IB or 16-bit binary interfaces.
Customized Routines: Built-in or customized routines can be downloaded to the servo-axis board. Simply enter the coefficients of the chosen algorithm, and add the desired feed-forward terms and limits on velocity, acceleration, and change of acceleration.
Environmental Compensation: The Keysight 10946C compensation board can be configured with the system to maximize system accuracy and repeatability in changing environments.
