The E1803 Controller provides the following general features:

  • can be used with any scanhead with XY2-100 or XY2-100-E interface
  • 100 Mbit Ethernet connection, USB 2.0 connection
  • online XYZ grid correction with support for several correction table file formats (like BeamConstruct HD .bco correction files, SCAPS™ .ucf, Scanlab™ .ctb and .ct5, Raylase™ .gcd, GSI/CTI™ .xml)
  • fast online switching between up to 16 grid correction tables
  • 10 microseconds vector cycle time and resolution (microstep period), command execution time down to 0,5 microseconds
  • realtime processing of laser and scanner signals
  • 26 bit internal resolution (for better quality also with 16 or 18 bit hardware output)
  • 512 MByte DDR3 RAM, 1 GHz CPU clock
  • extremely low power consumption of about 2 W (without scanhead power supply)
  • internal command and vector data list with more than 20 million entries
  • continuous list concept, no need to swap between lists
  • compact size of about 125 mm x 100 mm

Besides that it provides the following connectivity features and interfaces:

  • 16 bit XY2-100 interface to scanhead with X, Y and Z channel
  • 18 bit XY2-100-E interface to scanhead with X, Y and Z channel
  • two laser CMOS level digital outputs for usage with YAG, CO2, IPG™, SPI™ and other compatible laser types (outputs can provide PWM frequency, Q-Switch, FPK-pulse, continuously running frequency, stand-by frequency), running with frequencies up to 20 MHz
  • LP8 8 bit CMOS level parallel digital output e.g. for controlling laser power
  • LP8 latch and Master Oscillator CMOS level digital output for usage with IPG™ and compatible laser types
  • 2x 12 bit 0..10 V analogue outputs e.g. for controlling power of SPI™ lasers
  • 8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs can be switched to opto-insulated mode with external power supply of up to 24 V
  • 2x2 inputs can be used for 90 degree phase-shifted encoder signals for 1D and 2D marking on-the-fly applications
  • digital inputs can be used to select one of up to 256 stand-alone marking jobs stored on microSD card of baseboard
  • RS232/RS485 serial interface
  • can be powered with 12..24 V with direct supply to scanhead to save additional wiring
  • support for Micro-SD and Micro-SDHC cards with up to 32 GByte disk space for stand-alone operations
  • support for matrix laser/dot peen stand-alone mode with up to two lines of text and up to 2 MHz dot frequency
