OEM Piezo controller
The OEM controller is designed as a compact solution for multiple actuators or stages. The OEM controller can function as a standalone device or be clicked into a motherboard to control up to 16 axes. There are multiple ways to control actuators and stages with this controller, even with EtherCAT. Communicating over EtherCAT results in a fast response time for a maximum of 16 actuators or stages.
By use of our EtherCAT backplanes, an infinite number of axes can be daisy chained.
Low power consumption
Xeryon's OEM controllers are also a highly energy efficient solution for controlling our actuators and stages as they consume very liittle power.
For reference, an entire backplane with 16 OEM controllers + 16 EtherCAT interfaces (see the last picture) consumes just 28 W at 48 V on standby.
This makes the OEM controller very complementary with our actuators and stages, which are also highy efficient. Our actuators consume very little energy and dissipate very little heat. One of the reasons for this is that they are self-locking, meaning they require no energy to hold the desired position (motor is shut off when desired position is reached).
It is commonly believed that piezo technology requires high voltage operation. While that is true for traditional systems (such as stick-slip and walking piezo), Xeryon's ultrasonic piezo motors are driven by low voltage signals.
