The Ensemble QL/QLe™ panel-mount nanopositioning piezo drive family is designed for seamless use with the Ensemble family of drives and controllers. The QL/QLe connects to any Ensemble controller network enabling coordinated motion between piezo stages and servo axes at much higher rates than other controller or drive products. This power, versatility, and affordability make the Ensemble QL/QLe drives ideal for applications ranging from the most demanding fundamental scientific research to advanced OEM machine systems.

Featuring a dual-core 456 MHz, double-precision, floating-point DSP, the QL/QLe drives provide extreme processing power over a wide variety of applications including point-to-point motion, linear and circular interpolation, multi-axis error correction, and autofocusing. High-speed interrupts and data logging capabilities provide a real-time link to external systems. The QL/QLe also offers high-speed positioning latching capability and single-axis (QL) or multi-axis (QLe) position synchronized output (PSO) for generation of pulses based on actual position feedback in applications ranging from laser firing to data acquisition system triggering.

Ultra-Precision Feedback Options

Using the latest technology and high-resolution A/D and D/A converters, the QLe enables sub-nanometer positioning resolution at high bandwidths. The QLe capacitive sensor feedback circuitry provides ultra-low noise performance over the full travel range. In applications requiring less than maximum positioning resolution, the QL drive offers lower-resolution A/D and D/A converters providing the benefits of high-speed feedback and command generation at a more economical price point. The QLe employs a proprietary capacitive sensor feedback circuit resulting in industry-leading thermal stability and exceptional long-term holding stability. An Aerotech developed  linearization method achieves linearity better than 0.01% over the full travel range in closed-loop mode with both the QL and QLe.

I/O Options

In addition to the four optically-isolated digital inputs, two high-speed digital inputs and four optically-isolated digital outputs, both the Ensemble QL and QLe are equipped with analog inputs and outputs (one each for QL, two each for QLe). For ultra-precise applications, the QLe offers an 18-bit analog input that can be programmatically configured to accept an external feedback sensor or position command. This analog input also allows the high-voltage power amplifier to be controlled directly by an external low-level analog input. Also, the QLe has one 20-bit analog output that can be programmatically configured for position or voltage monitoring at very high resolutions. The QL drive offers the same analog input/output functionality at 16-bit resolutions.

Advanced Software and Control Features

The Ensemble software uses advanced PID servo loops with advanced feedforward and multiple integrators coupled with eight programmable filters to supply the user with all necessary tools needed to optimize motion performance. Additional software options such as the Dynamic Controls Toolbox and Motion Designer packages make available a host of advanced, yet easy-to-use, tools that can improve tracking errors and provide faster step-and-settle times. These tools include Learning Control, Harmonic Cancellation, Command Shaping, and Cross-Axis Feedforward.

Powerful Programming and Software Drivers

The Ensemble GUI Integrated Development Environment software allows monitoring and control of all aspects of the positioning system regardless of complexity. Advanced tuning utilities minimize startup time by allowing easy optimization of motion axes. Functional programs that can be modified and used in customer applications are included in the online Help. Pre-coded LabVIEW® VIs, AeroBasic™ programming functionality, MATLAB® library, .NET tools for C#, VB.NET and C++/CLI or C make the Ensemble even easier to use. See the Ensemble Control home page for detailed information on software capabilities and ordering options.

Automatic Parameter Configuration

Aerotech’s piezo stages include our time-saving “FlashConfig” feature that stores all of the parametric information required to operate the stage. Upon plug-in, the Ensemble QL/QLe automatically identifies the connected stage. All operation parameters, including axis calibration data and software parameters, are uploaded into the Ensemble QL/QLe. This ensures faster setup and avoids errors that can result in substandard performance. “FlashConfig” provides true “plug and play” operation of your Aerotech stage.

Thermal Stability Comparison

Piezo controller design can have a significant effect on thermal stability causing excessive error in precision motion applications. See our Technical Note where we briefly describe some techniques used for controlling thermal effects and compare the thermal stability of our piezo control electronics with a competitive design.
