Digital motion control systems for hydraulic and electric drive products

System on Module

Moog, Inc. is a worldwide designer, manufacturer, and integrator of precision control components and systems.

Its motion control portfolio has expanded to include all forms of actuation technology, sophisticated control electronics, and system software.


The Application

The Moog M3000 is a high-performance digital motion control system for hydraulic and electric drive products. The modular M3000 comprises a Moog Servo Controller (MSC), Moog Axis Control Software (MACS) and numerous, optional extension modules. The M3000 provides multiple software-configurable interfaces for SSI, encoders, CANopen, RS232, Ethernet, Profibus, and A/D outputs. It serves as the basis for distributed, motion control systems consisting of servo valves, servo-proportional valves, servo drives, and RKP (Radical Piston) pumps.

The Solution

The phyCORE-MPC5200B System on Module powers the system and offers flexible I/O conditioning based on an on-board FPGA that drives the Moog MSD motion controller. The FPGA also integrates various sensor interfaces such as SSI and an EnDat. EnDat is a digital, bidirectional interface that is ideal for digital drive systems and position control loops with position encoders for measurement feedback. Real-time Linux is the operating system. Reasons Moog chose PHYTEC as a partner include:

  • CPU/FPGA design and Linux expertise
  • Reduced overall product design risk due to PHYTEC’s knowledge of EMVC/EMI-optimized design of high frequency components
  • Joint development of additional product features and subsequent integration of these features into PHYTEC’s standard phyCORE-MPC5200B module
