HALdrive X20 - 20 Bit XY3-100 Analogue Converter

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.
