Features

Integrated Drivers

The ESP30x controllers feature 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 ESP30x controllers a space saving and cost effective choice.

Convenient Front Panel

ESP302 includes a user-friendly LCD touch-screen 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.  This allows user to perform nearly all functions without connecting to a computer.

The ESP301 has an user friendly dot-matrix LCD front panel providing similar capabilities. An additional digital joystick can provide easy jog control. With the ESP301's manual interfaces, motion can be executed without a computer.

Plug-and-Play with ESP Compatible Stages

When an ESP-compatible stage is connected to the ESP30x controller, 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. It is currently only compatible with ESP301 controllers.

Functional Motion Capabilities

The ESP30x controllers include 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 ESP30x well-rounded controllers that can handle common motion tasks.

Customization

In addition to Newport stages, the ESP30x controllers can be configured to support third-party motors. Additional customization can be done for various OEM applications. For this please contact your local sales person for more information.

Simple Programming with Extensive Language Options

The ESP301x controllers 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 ESP30x controllers have 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 ESP302 offers 2 widely-used communication protocols for computer interfacing. Standard Ethernet and RS-232-C communication link is used for easy computer interfacing. An optional IEEE-488 (GPIB) interface adapter can be used for high speed parallel communication.

On the ESP301 there is an USB port instead of the Ethernet and IEEE-488 (GPIB) is a built-in option.
