With the new multi-axis controller b maXX 5800, Baumüller provides a compact solution for controlling up to six drive axes, e.g., for robot and handling applications. The new controller can be configured individually and fully flexibly. This means that the user can freely combine axis powers in the controller. He can also integrate the exactly right axis power for every single axis. The result is a device that meets the requirements of his application perfectly. As part of the b maXX 5000 family, the b maXX 5800 is fully compatible with the modular systems made by Baumüller. An alternative can be offered for applications, where compactness is key.
The combination of six independently controllable axes into one controller enables significantly faster communication in the system than with separate axis units. Dead times due to field bus communication are omitted. For example, gantry axes can be calculated within one CPU. The combination also reduces wiring costs, as one field bus connection only is required for all axes.
The b maXX 5800 can be adjusted to individual safety requirements using optional safety modules. It can be operated with the Baumüller hand-held operating device without additional PC.
