Motion Products: Machine Controller

Dec. 1, 2008
The system features dynamic look-ahead along with algorithms for jerk limitation and intelligent motion control.

The TNC 620 with digital drive control is for use on both milling machines and machining centers with up to five axes plus spindle. Based on the NC Kernel software platform, the system features dynamic look-ahead along with algorithms for jerk limitation and intelligent motion control. The Heidenhain Serial Controller Interface (HSCI) is based on the 100BaseT Ethernet standard. Together with the purely digital EnDat 2.2 encoder interface, the TNC 620 has a uniformly digital design from the main computer to the encoder. The main computer of the TNC 620 is housed inside the operating panel behind the TFT flatpanel display to eliminate complicated wiring into the electrical box.
