OPEN-XS is the flexible, powerful and cost-effective entry level system of the OSAI CNC OPENcontrol family. Based on Intel Atom 1.6 GHz CPU, OPEN-XS is able to manage up to 2 processes (each one executing an ISO program) and up to 8 simultaneously interpolated axes.
OPEN-XS is a modular system that offers both a solution for the control of servo-drives and I/O modules distributed on a digital fieldbus and also for controlling analog axes and integrated I/O.
The main features of OPEN-XS allow to have high finishing quality and an optimized management of machining centers:
Gantry and dual axes management
Look-ahead with 256 pre-calculated blocks
Velocity Feed Forward (VFF)
Jerk control using advanced algorithms
Management of tool magazine, tool life, random tool, multi-pocket tool
Multi-axis electronic CAM
Two different OPEN-XS models, based on the same control unit, allow the management of digital servo drives controlled by
the new Mechatrolink III protocol
the EtherCAT protocol whether based on CANopen
