Industries & Applications
Copley Controls delivers high performance motion solutions to a wide range of industries including semiconductor, life sciences, test systems, automated assembly, and COTS military. An ISO 9001:2015 company, Copley produces products of the highest quality in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in the US and China. Copley drives carry a full 2-year warranty.
With over 35 years of experience in OEM partnerships, Copley’s application team combines with R&D to deliver worldclass, highly responsive support. Our global commitment is backed with sales offices and local technical resources in the US, Europe and Asia.
From networked servo and stepper drives to traditional torque amplifiers, Copley has the solution for your system architecture. Both AC and DC powered drives with flexible packaging options are offered in the 100 W – 6 kW power range. They provide a comprehensive range of motor feedback interfaces, advanced tuning and commutation algorithms that maximize motor performance.
Modules (Servo & Stepper)
Modules are pin versions of Copley panel drives with size and cost optimized circuits. The OEMs can select the required interface circuits and connectors to mount on their own PCBs. Copley provides development kits, PCB layout reference designs, customized hardware, firmware, and software to help expedite the development cycle.
Digital incremental encoder and Halls are the standard interface on servo drives with position mode capability. Optional features include Sin/Cos encoders and Resolvers. Firmware incorporates a wake-and-wiggle algorithm for commutation without Halls. Copley Plus drives are available with a growing range of open standard absolute encoder interfaces including BiSS, SSI, Absolute A and EnDat.
Configuration & Control Software
Copley drive configuration software, CME is highly intuitive and incorporates powerful diagnostic tools. An easy-to-use Indexer is built in. For more complex applications, Copley Programming Language (CPL), a flexible high-level language is provided with powerful editing and debugging capabilities. Network software tools make multi-axis control system commissioning fast and simple. Proven Copley source code for the control and management of both EtherCAT and CANopen networks facilitates application implementation. Migration from CANopen to EtherCAT is straightforward and seamless.
Copley distributed control software makes system commissioning fast and simple. The development of low-level code to control CANopen or EtherCAT network is eliminated. All network management is accomplished with a few simple commands linked into your application program.
Copley supports two development environments. Copley Motion Libraries (CML) source code can be complied with a C++ application program for CANopen and EtherCAT. Copley Motion Objects (CMO) for CANopen is a .Net® assembly that can be used by Visual Studio® or any program supporting the .Net® framework.
The Copley PLUS Advantage
PLUS drives support EtherCAT or CANopen and offer expanded feedback options. Multi-axis versions deliver the lowest cost per node. PLUS drives feature high resolution A/D converters for optimal current control as well as fast, hardwarebased position capture and set point trigger output.
