Features

Integrated Drivers

The ESP301 features up to 3 integrated drivers for various stages. These drivers support 2 or 4-phase stepper or brush DC motors up to 3A, 48V per axis. Built-in drivers make the ESP301 a space saving and cost effective choice.

Convenient Front Panel

ESP301 includes a user-friendly front panel interface providing an intuitive menu system from which you can execute motion programs, initiate manual moves, and configure operating parameters. Positions for all axes are displayed on the LCD screen. An additional digital joystick can provide easy jog control. With the ESP301's manual interfaces, motion can be executed without a PC.

Plug-and-Play with ESP Compatible Stages

When an ESP-compatible stage is connected to the ESP301, the stage is quickly recognized and operating parameters are configured without the need for user inputs. This Plug-and-Play feature is not only transparent to the user, but it also ensures the safe operation of the stage.

Joystick Hand Controller

The ESP300-J digital joystick provide convenient manual jog control.

Functional Motion Capabilities

The ESP301 includes a variety of motion capabilities: Slaving (joystick or other stage), Jogging, Point-to-Point, Grouping, Trapezoidal Velocity Profile, S-Curve Velocity Profile, Backlash Compensation, and Linear Compensation. These motion features make the ESP301 a well-rounded controller that can handle common motion tasks.

Customization

In addition to Newport stages, the ESP301 can be configured to support third-party motors. This controller can also be customized for various OEM applications such as special front panels, switches, and drivers.

Simple Programming with Extensive Language Options

The ESP301 simplifies complex motions by using mnemonic ASCII commands, a powerful programming language with over 100 commands. The controller's flash memory allows for storage of up to 100 user-defined ASCII programs then executed without a host computer. Alternatively, additional drivers are available for other languages including LabVIEW™ drivers and communication DLL’s.

Motion Commands with Digital I/O

For internal or external event synchronization, the ESP301 has 16 bi-directional digital I/O which can be user programmed as inputs or outputs. When configured as inputs, they can be used to execute a program or stop a motion. When configured as outputs, they can monitor the status of a motion to provide a hardware interface for external equipment. An additional watchdog timer and remote interlock are supplied as an invaluable safety feature.

Standard Communication Protocols

The ESP301 offers 3 widely-used communication protocols for computer interfacing. Standard USB and RS-232-C communication link is used for easy computer interfacing. An optional IEEE-488 (GPIB) interface is available for high speed parallel communication.
