HALdrive X20 - 20 Bit XY3-100 Analogue Converter


Please note: Our annual vacation close-down takes place from 17.08.2020 until 04.09.2020.
So there will be no support and no shipping during this time.

The HALdrive is an adapter module to operate analogue scanheads together with a XY3-100 scanner controller card. It is fully adjusted, ready to be used and needs to be electrically connected only for operation.
It provides the following features:

  • XY3-100 input signal
  • -5V..+5V analogue output with 20 bit resolution
  • wide range power supply: +-10V .. +-24 V
  • simple 1:1 connection with E1803D contoller card possible
  • full operation with any other XY3-100 scanner controller
  • instant-on, no bootup time after power-up
  • small size of 62x45 mm (can be shrinked to 45x45 mm if necessary)

So it can be used to connect a XY3-100 digital controller board to an analogue scanhead and will guarantee a low-latency, fully synchronous operation.

The XY3-100 protocol itself is a new, open, future-proof and non-proprietary standard for communication between scanner controller card and scanhead. It provides variable position resolutions in range 16..26 bit and an extended backchannel. It is hardware-compatible to its predecessor XY2-100 and therefore can be implemented in existing hardware via a firmware upgrade easily.
