RightPath™ Trajectory Control

RightPath™ Trajectory Control is a firmware feature that enables scanning motion along a defined trajectory, line, arc or rotation, with minimal runout and at a constant, definable speed.

Inputs and Outputs for Integrating External Devices

The HXP-ELEC has a total of 60 digital I/O's to read external switches, control valves or other digital devices and 4 analog outputs to precisely monitor any motion axis (such as position, velocity or acceleration). To synchronize external devices during a motion process, the controller has dedicated “event and action" API's which users can use to trigger an action upon the occurrence of an event. Typical examples include sending a digital output when constant velocity is reached or initiating a TCL script when the motion is done. Once defined, the controller autonomously monitors the status of the event to trigger the action with a latency of less than 100 µs! This powerful feature does not require any complex programming by the user and does not consume any time of the host PC or communication link since processing is done at the controller level.


Upgrade the HXP-ELEC controller from running six axes of motion of a hexapod to running these six axes and an additional two motorized axes. For example, extend the X-axis travel by mounting a hexapod on top of a linear stage, or extend the Z-rotational range by mounting a hexapod on top of a rotary stage. Or, customize the hexapod system with two other axes of motion.

Real-time Processing and Multitasking

Based on QNX real-time operating system and multi-tasking functionality, the HXP-ELEC is capable of executing complex, internally stored, user-generated applications using TCL scripts. The motion processor supports TCL program execution without adversely impacting higher-priority tasks. With this advanced real-time multi-tasking functionality, the controller not only manages the most complex motion requirements but also serves as a powerful, standalone process controller to concurrently support multiple applications.

Command Motion With an External Analog Device

The HXP-ELEC features four channels of 14-Bit analog-to-digital converters which can be integrated with a motion process using a TCL script. The analog inputs can be converted to directly control the position or speed of a motion axis via external analog inputs. This is critical in precision alignment or auto-focusing routines which require real-time feedback from other devices such as power meters, vision systems, or other sensors. Besides higher communication speed, the A-to-D conversion is internal to the controller, therefore no processing burden is added to the host PC or the communication link. Consequently, this feature can improve process development and throughput.

User-Friendly GUI

The HXP-ELEC provides users convenient, user-friendly access to the most common features and functions of the controller. All software tools are implemented as a web interface which is independent from the user's operating system and does not require any specific software on the host PC.

Joystick Controller

The HXP-D-Joystick enables the use of the included commercial Joystick Logitech F710 on a hexapod system controlled by Newport HXP-ELEC-D Motion Controller. HXP-D-Joystick reads Joystick commands and converts them into HXP-ELEC-D controller commands including repeated incremental moves to simulate analog control and axis selection.
