BiSS Slave / motion control solutions
MAGICS has developed a plug and play radiation hardened closed loop motion control system for sensing applications in harsh environments, thanks to the integration of Magics radiation-hardened integrated circuits. The system can survive accumulated doses of more than 1MGy and suitable for operations in the nuclear field.
The system consists of a bus controller with an embedded deterministic communication protocol, allowing it to receive exact timing information from all sensors in the network. The bus controller module can connect with 3 SPI slave ASICs. These ASICs can connect resolvers, LVDTs, strain gauges, force sensors, and pressure sensors, all provided by rad-hard ASICs developed and designed by Magics. In addition, these slaves can read out limit switches or drive relays for motion control applications. The rad-hard Magics DCDC module is also included in the system, enabling local DC power distribution. A master module can receive and send digital data over 215 meters from a control cubicle.
The Master controller can communicate with a higher-level control system used by a system integrator. An SSI interface is foreseen to communicate with existing motor drivers. Sensors or relay drivers can be connected in the radiation environment.
The Magics team provides a fast, convenient plug and play module service. These radiation-hardened modules can be adapted to fit your application and are based on our proven rad-hard ASICS, fully integrated on board.With 3 easy steps your Motion Control Solution can be developed to meet your needs, easy integration within your current system.
