CSMIO/P-S is recommended to users/companies that:

  • retrofit original CNC machines that require a large number of digital signals for tool magazines or automatic transmission support,
  • build new, fast, and precise milling machines or routers equipped with a high frequency of step/dir signal servo drives,
  • build very large machines equipped with riding gantry that requires two independent servos or stepper drives, Master and Slave driving. The slave axis function provides software gantry geometry correction in case of minor inaccuracies in the construction or low rigidity of the gantry.
  • plan to develop/expand their control system in the future with additional modules (threading, JOG- handwheel).
  • CSMIO/IP-S  can be successfully used with milling machines, lathes, routers, plasma, or laser cutters.  

The ideal system for CNC machines control

CSMIO/IP-S is a 6-axis motion controller. In combination with a PC and simCNC control software, it’s an ideal system for CNC machine control. CSMIO/IP-S was designed for professionals, CNC automation manufacturers,  retrofit specialists, and hobbyists, who want to equip their machine tool with efficient, stable and flexible CNC control system for the reasonable price.

How does it work?

In short, simCNC control software installed on a computer is the brain and CSMIO/IP-S controller is the heart of a control system. The simCNC control software changes gcodes into motion trajectory and sends them to the CSMIO/IP-S through the network connection. Basing on the trajectory, the controller generates an accurate step/dir signal for all axes. This division of tasks makes the computer less loaded.

The Main Advantages

Operation Stability is provided by connection with PC via Ethernet – its physical layer is galvanically isolated, and used protocols provide reliable and fast transmission even in the tough industrial environment). Practically any other interface does not provide continuity and reliability of transmission on such a high level as ETHERNET. That is why it is currently the worldwide standard for high-speed digital communication.
Easy installation – one of the most significant advantages of CSMIO/IP-S is the simplicity of installation. It does not require any external electronics for correct operation. Inputs/outputs signals are optically isolated, filtered, protected against short circuits, overheating, etc. All signals are adapted to industry 24V standards. The device is enclosed in a compact housing and mounted on a DIN rail, making mechanical and electronic installation in a control cabinet take less time and more comfortable.

CSMIO/IP-S controller is supported by professional, dedicated simCNC software. As for the control signal, it is the favorite step/direction (step/dir) standard. This way, you can control both – stepper motor drives and the most modern servo drives. Thanks to the frequency of the stop signal that reaches 8MHz with the simCNC software, you can take maximum advantage of stepper division in stepper motors, reducing resonance and significantly improving the propulsion system’s performance. It also provides the full advantage of encoders with a large number of pulses per rotation in servo drives, and the same lets you achieve such precision and speed, which previously were unavailable in this price sector.

The main advantages of the CSMIO/IP-S controller

  • Step/dir signal – after the first run of a CNC machine equipped with the CSMIO/IP-S controller, you will notice how smooth and precise your motors’ work is. It’s thanks to high-quality step/dir signal and data buffer, which stores a small part of the trajectory sent by the simCNC software.
  • Data buffer – the mentioned trajectory buffer provides uninterrupted CNC machine operation, even in case of temporary problems with network connection or software control problems.
  • Slave axis support – up to 3 slave axes support with gantry geometry correction.
  • Safety system – the significant advantage of the CSMIO/IP-S controller is its safety system. It constantly watches over the safety of a user and a machine. It consists of many independent algorithms and watchdogs that react very fast in forbidden or alarm situations. RESET support for axis drives. Support of FAULT signals from servo drives (immediate stop of a machine in case of any axis accident).
  • Solid aluminum housing, which dissipates heat and protects electronic circuits very well. Readable led controls on a front panel make it easier to install and simplify diagnostics in case of any problems with switches or other external devices that cooperate with the CSMIO/IP-S.
  • Macros – you can control all digital and analog signals using Python (simCNC) macros.
  • Industry-standard – CSMIO/IP-S controller is adapted to worldwide standards applied by servo and stepper drives manufacturers, including:
    • step/dir outputs supported by differential line transmitters DS26C31 (RS422 standard compliant)
    • opto-isolated 24VDC digital outputs supported by specialized systems with protection against short-circuit and overload.
    • opto-isolated 24VDC digital inputs
    • 0-10V analog inputs are used to connect potentiometers of spindle rotation speed correction and axis feed rate.
    • 0-10V analog outputs used, i.e., for VFD control.

Expansion modules

You can extend CSMIO/IP-S features using the additional expansion modules:

  • CSMIO-ENC – the module provides threading capability with an encoder, rigid tapping
  • CSMIO-MPG – module for manual axes operation using handwheel encoder. Very smooth control of machine motion, automatic switching between speed and position modes.
  • CSMIO-IO – module of additional 16 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs (24V, opto-isolation, overload protection). You can use up to 16 of these modules.

The CSMIO/IP-S controller housing and all the expansion modules is adapted to DIN 35mm rail mounting.
