Parker Hannifin Introduces ACR7000 Series Controllers

Parker’s Electromechanical & Drives Division North America announced the release of the ACR7000 series controllers. Built on the ACR9000 platform, the family utilizes re-imagined hardware designs, designed for tabletop and laboratory style instruments. With the flexibility of the AcroBasic language, the ACR7000 series is a building block for customer specific motion system solutions.

Hardware features include:

  • 800MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor
  • Ethernet Communications, RJ-45 Connection
  • 24VDC Motor Input Power and separate 24VDC control power
  • Four micro-stepping drives with up to 4Amps for each motor
  • Selectable micro-stepping resolution, up to 51,200 steps/rev
  • Four Encoder inputs for optional position maintenance or position verification functions
  • On-board I/O, including high-speed trigger inputs and encoder-based outputs

The release of the ACR7000 also introduces a software development tool, Parker Motion Manager (PMM). Parker Motion Manager combines Parker’s ACR-View (a code-development tool) and years of user feedback in a scalable software development environment. A set-up wizard and software oscilloscope are among the features in PMM.
