Laser Control

LCI

Laser Control Interface

The LCI is designed to meet the needs of laser processing system OEMs with demanding throughput and accuracy requirements. Working under any ACS SPiiPlus Platform EtherCAT master controller, the LCI tightly synchronizes control of a fixed beam laser with motion. Sub-microsecond latency enables high-accuracy laser micromachining, while high pulse frequencies enable high levels of throughput. Synchronize your laser and motion control with up to five axes.
