NCT 200 Control series
The evolution of electronics, faster microprocessors, internet, high-speed networks, mobile world, the endless range of PC peripheries and services
turned the conservative industrial electronics upside down. These days a successful CNC is unthinkable without ETHERNET connection, high capacity
memory, or a PENDRIVE for saving part programs or without any cursor device (mouse, touchpad, trackball, touchscreen).
The CNC system software has to adapt to the usual management techniques of PC (select, copy, search, file management etc.) and file compatibility
is very important for the portability of programs. Windows Embedded, the operation system developed for industrial automation has been installed
in the NCT 200 controls to fulfill these requirements. The connection between the peripheries and the central unit managed by standard industrial
ETHERNET (EtherCAT) channel, which is a worldwide standard these days.
And something else! The default screen of NCT 200 control series is a touchscreen that is widely used in industrial computers (IPC) and mobile devices.
BASICS
NCT 201
hardware
The NCT 201 is the first member of NCT 200 series control
family. The industrial CNC CPU of the NCT 201 is located
behind a large LCD monitor and provide a single unit for
easy installation. This hardware includes the complete CNC
software together with integrated PLC. All peripheries that
control the machine tool connect to CNC by EtherCAT channel that is a worldwide standard these days. Installer of NCT
201 is free to select the compatible elements from different
manufacturers and connect them to NCT control due to the
standardized periphery management and the worldwide
standard.
These EtherCAT peripheries are the operator keyboard, handwheel, wide range of PLC in/output devices and servo
drives.
The use of an operator keyboard designed by the integrator,
or retaining the original operating panel of the machine in
case of a control retrofit is easy and inexpensive. The peripheries of NCT and those of other manufacturers can easily be
mixed and matched.
Touchscreen
Reliable, easy cleaning and operator-friendly
Reliable
Touchscreen is a preferred user interface for industrial computers (IPC) that work in very rough conditions, and became
the standard screen option for mobile devices (phones, tablet
PCs) in the last few years. Due to high demand the TOUCHPANEL manufacturers developed their products to such a high
quality that their lifecycle is longer than that of the high quality
industrial pushbuttons.
We only use the touchscreen of the leading manufacturer of
the world and the lifecycle of that is more than 10 million
clicks.
Touchscreen
Easy cleaning
Frequently asked questions are whether the touchscreen will
be damaged by wet, oil-covered hands and how can the
polluted screen be cleaned.
The touchscreen is protected by a special non-reflecting adhesive foil that resists mechanical effects, and can be cleaned
by one movement with a soft cloth unlike the raised surface
of conventional keyboards. The inexpensive adhesive foil can
be replaced easily and quickly even by the user in case of a
damage.

BASICS
Touchscreen
User-friendly
The user-friendly interface (HMI) is the most important advantage of a touchscreen.
Data input is done by a virtual keyboard “painted” on the
touchscreen. The keyboard picture only appears and takes
up screen space when data input is possible. Adapting other
languages is not a problem due to the virtual keyboard; user
can select the language of keyboard easily. The size and location of buttons provides convenient data input. When pushing buttons a clicking sound can be heard.
The user friendliness of a control interface depends on how
many buttons need to be pressed to achieve a certain function. Of course, the target is the minimum button clicking.
Touchscreen also helps here. There are several windows in
the screen of NCT control at the same time. The button zone
in the lower section shows the control options of active window. Pressing its surface can activate any window.
Should the user prefer a PC keyboard, there are 4 USB terminals, and any type of PC keyboard can be connected to
one of them. The wired or wireless PC keyboard can be
placed on a tray under the machine operator panel in a convenient, ergonomic position. The keyboard tray can be ordered as an option.
Sound signals
There is a connection for speakers in NCT 200 control family
emitting clicking sound by pressing the keyboard screen, or
if there are alarm signals. A voice adviser option will also be
offered in the near future.
Nanointerpolation
The internal data management of NCT 200 control series enables the nano resolution path generation. Speed computing,
and all path and speed compensations are in nano resolution. The EnDat 2.2 measuring system and EtherCAT communication channel assure the resolution and speed required by
nanointerpolation. It provides enhanced accuracy and surface finish during machining.

Create your own user interface that offers the most convenient
operation!
The reason for application of window structure is user interface created in WINDOWS operation system. Each window
is an individual panel whether or not contains data input or
other control options. User can locate panels anywhere in the
screen in arbitrary disposition. Panels can be resized optionally. The screen composed by user can be saved or also
frozen. The frozen screen can not be modified (resize or close
panels).
Windows in
screen
Manual data input
The features of manual mode are important to manage the
user-friendly supply of CNC machine tools. The NCT 200
controls also excel in this subject. The control saves the issued
commands and lists them on the screen. By highlighting any
command line on the list, the commands can be issued
again.
Compatibility
Lathe, mill, grinder, sheet metal cutter CNC
It is a great advantage if different type of machine tools can
use the same control and the operating and programming
system is compatible among them, and there are only technological differences. The NCT 200 series controls can be
installed in different machine tools, and only specific PLC programs and necessary technological macros need to be developed.
Efficiency, Compatibility
ISO programming = Efficiency, Compatibility
The programming and executing of programs in the NCT
200 controls is fully compatible with previous NCT 100 control series and with several Japanese and American CNC
controls. This is the easiest solution to connect CAM systems
to NCT 200 series. This is an efficient, fast programming language, the worldwide alphabet of CNC techniques.
MACRO
MACRO programming by defining symbolic variables
The popular MACRO programming used in NCT 100 controls is also available in NCT 200 controls. The advantage
of the new Macro system is that the variables of the macro
program can also be referred to by symbols.
myNCT
myNCT
However, the most efficient CNC program is still written in
G-codes, the program writing time, not the program executing time has to be reduced at single piece or short-run production cases. The myNCT program editor helps in this
activity. The machining can be done and simulated graphically by drawing the contour of workpiece and filling some
dialogue charts in a few minutes. Of course you can do it
while executing another part program.

MORE CHANNELS, HIGH SPEED MACHINING
More channels
One of the most important advantages of the NCT 200 controls is the multi-channel structure. It means several logical
CNC controls in one physical unit. Each channel is an individual CNC control that executes its own technological program by continuous coordination with the other channels. The
number of channels limited by only the speed of CPU, that
can be at most 8 in the present system. The control has all
the features and functions which are necessary for multi-channel CNC machine tools, such as special tool management
or simultaneous, transposed or superposed axes.
HSHP
High-speed high precision machining path
You move much slower on a curvy unknown road than on
one, where someone always determines the speed to take
the next curve safely. The tool path generator of the CNC
reads ahead up to 1000 blocks before execution to ensure
maximum machining speed and computes the feed speed of
the next contour element by making sure not to exceed the
safe acceleration and deceleration parameters of the machine tool.
Point filter
The CAM programs often generate unnecessarily short movements by machining the respective contour. By switching on
the point filter option the machining speed will significantly
increase without decreasing the accuracy. In this case the
point filtering combines programmed movements into a block
as long as the amount of movements does not exceed the
limit of any axis defined in parameter. The block generated
by combined movements is a straight line between the starting point of first block and the endpoint of last block.
Acceleration
deceleration
The execution of acceleration/deceleration influences significantly the speed of high-speed high precision contouring
(HSHP). The NCT 200 controls change speed parabolic so
it provides the fastest path speed by the smallest load of mechanics of machine tool.

PROBING IN MACHINE TOOL
Measuring in
machine tool
Tool or workpiece touch probe from any manufacturer can
be connected to NCT 200 controls by ETP card. MES software integrated in control manages high variety of touching,
measuring functions, the DIGI program package touches control path and complex surfaces. Some manufacturers (RENISHAW, M&H) offer software packages for their touch
probes. These MACRO programs can also be installed in
NCT controls.
Tool
measurement
The tool is essential to ensure machining accuracy of the
workpiece. The tool geometry can be measured quickly and
safely by doing measurement in machine tool. Tool dimensional changes caused by tool wear can be managed by
programmed measurement cycles during machining and tool
wear or breakage of tool can also be inspected.
Tool measurement can be also performed on stationary or
driven tools. Mechanic or laser device of several manufacturers (HEIDENHAIN, RENISHAW, M&H) can also be installed to NCT controls.
Workpiece
measurement
Although workpiece touch probe is traditionally used for quick
and accurate probing of workpiece zero point, the demand
increases for measuring workpiece during machining. During
machining the geometry of workpiece could change significantly and the necessary accuracy could not be ensured without measurement during interruption of machining, because
of internal structural transformations.
Measurement cycles could be used for the most frequently
used measuring tasks (shaft, bore, corner point, etc.). Coordinate transformation after measurement provides the accurate machining for incorrectly clamped workpiece.
Measuring and calibrating rotating axes of 5 axis machine
tools have done quickly and easily by measurement in machine tool.
Digitizing
Digitizing inside of machine tool is actually a series of measurement. Software module integrated in control drives the
workpiece touch probe along the workpiece contour in range
defined by cycle parameters. In touching points the coordinates of touching sphere central point saved in technological
program specified by operator. In this method a contour received is parallel to the original, that is generated by using
CAD/CAM software.

NCT
servo drives
The NCT servo drives are complete EtherCAT peripheries.
They are connected to NCT 200 control central unit (EHU)
by one EtherCAT bus. Moving commands are received and
also absolute position transmitted to CNC software by using
this wide-frequency channel. NCT servo drives are developed especially for machine tool applications. The NCT
servo drives are the essential peripheries of the NCT controls
due to their extremely fast and accurate current and speed
regulation capabilities.
SoE
SERCOS over EtherCAT
The NCT control communicates with servo drives by a widely
used standard protocol. Using servo drives of several manufacturers is possible because of standard connection. Setting
servo drives is done from NCT control easily, without external
device. The tested parameters are saved in control. The control loads the parameters into each servo drive every time
when it is switched on, so the parameter setting is automatic
also in case of changing motor or servo drive.
Parameter setting
Servo drives
The NCT servo drives are connected to NCT control by using
standard SoE (SERCOS over EtherCAT) or CoE (CAN OPEN
over EtherCAT) protocol, so servo drive parameters can be
loaded from control. Parameter sets of servomotors and servo
drives saved in HDD of the control. In case of starting up a
system consisting of control and servo drives or changing a
servo drive the assigned parameters are loaded immediately
and the servo drives will be ready for operation. There are
ready, tested parameter sets for all NCT synchronous servomotors in HDD of NCT 200 controls for our users.
NCT motors
Developing NCT servomotors is one of the most successful,
most effective developments of our R&D department. The
NCT A, Ai, AiS, AMS and TORQUE motors also satisfy the
highest demands. The mechanical construction, size, speed,
and electric parameters of our motors are developed especially for machine tool applications. However, the Ai motors
are mounted with EnDat 2.2 absolute rotary encoders as standard, each NCT servomotor is available with incremental TTL
or sinusoidal output (SINCOS/1Vpp) measuring system as
option.

NCT SYNCHRONOUS AND ASYNCHRONOUS
SERVO DRIVES AND SERVO MOTORS
Synchronous
servo motors
NCT synchronous servo motors are available in 1 Nm -75
Nm torque range with three flange sizes. The shaft design
and connecting main dimensions are compatible with similar
sized motors of several Japanese manufacturers.
Asynchronous
spindle motors
High-speed asynchronous motors are primarily used for driving spindles of machine tools, and are available with throughbored shaft and up to 15000-rpm speed. Air- or liquid
cooling is also available depending on size and construction.
Torque motors
The TORQUE motors can rotate or tilt a rotary table or milling
head directly, without inserting any drive mechanism. These
motors can produce extremely high torques constantly because of high intensity liquid cooling.
BUILT-IN
SPINDLES
MOTORS
- Higher dynamics because of smaller inertial mass, lower
loss, lower current drain
- Better workpiece geometry thanks to the lack of deformation
caused by belt tension
- Higher lifetime, better surface geometry on workpiece and
higher tool insert life thanks to much lower vibration level
- Better workpiece geometrical and repeating accuracy,
longer lifetime of bearing thanks to lower thermal deformation because of high intensity liquid cooling
- Long bearing lifetime
- Low noise level
These are the advantages of lathe built-in spindles compared
to conventional belt drive. The liquid-cooled lathe built-in
motor spindles are available in two center line sizes and several spindle dimensions.

PLC
PLC
The PLC integrated in the NCT 200 controls can be programmed in popular LADDER system, providing effective error
detection for maintenance and repairing personnel. Ladder
displayed in the PLC window and the “green flow” represents
logical states and processes during operation. High-level language (PYTHON) is available for PLC programmers, machine
tool builders to create their own user interface.
EPU
Locomotive of EtherCAT IO periphery train
Coupler unit (EPU) with EtherCAT connection create an IO
periphery with periphery elements connected by LVDS bus.
These units can be placed at any point in the machine. The
full length of EtherCAT network can be up to several kilometers. The maximum distance between two network elements
can even reach 100 meters. A lot of wiring could be saved
in IO peripheries located optimally inside the machine.
IO peripheries
Wide range of IO peripheries
The peripheries of NCT controls are connected to the CNC
control central unit (EHU) by EtherCAT channel. They can be
NCT IO units, NCT servo drives, and also standard EtherCAT
peripheries from other manufacturers (BECKHOFF, YASKAVA,
ABB, HITACHI, BAUMÜLLER, LENZE, SEW, WAGO etc.).
The IO periphery system developed to connect “carriages”
with different tasks, in different length to EPU (“Locomotive”)
with EtherCAT connection by ribbon cable, using LVDS bus.
This “train” “runs” on DIN rails which are widely used in building electric panels and cabinets. There are 20 “carriages”
(periphery modules) available for different tasks currently, but
the selection is constantly extended and arbitrary “carriages”
can be constructed for different user demands.
Phyton

ETHERNET
ETHERNET connection is a basic accessory of each part of
NCT 200 control series. It can be connected into any WINDOWS network (TCP/IP protocol, 100 Mbit/sec speed)
without any external software. After that a part program can
be loaded easily into the HDD of the control, or it can be assigned to run and execute without loading it into the memory
of control.
USB
There are 4 pcs of USB ports on the NCT control to receive
USB peripheries as usual in world of PC. PENDRIVE, keyboard, various cursor units (mouse, TRACKBALL, TOUCHPAD
etc.) can be connected here.
Software update
I.
Update NCT system software
The system software of a NCT control will be constantly developed, expanded in the following years. New versions with
improved knowledge; functions will be expected to be introduced every 2-4 months. An important feature of the NCT
200 control series is that users can install the new software
version easily, and it does not require the assistance of NCT..
Software update
II.
Change system software of servo drives
NCT is constantly developing its products and install new features continually. These changes could improve an existing
knowledge or install a completely new one. System software
of CNC or even servo drive can be reinstalled by machine
builder or user conveniently without requiring the assistance
of NCT. The features of new software versions are in the NCT
website and the software can be downloaded from here.
ESIC card
(EtherCAT Software Integrity Card)
This unit is a multi-function part of the NCT control hardware.
The operational job is to manage EtherCAT junction, write
dynamic non-volatile memory and manage software protection key and PAYBIT. The software protection saves the list of
options purchased by the user and it enables or disables
using of them based on the list. In case of replacing the control, all purchased functions will be transferred to the new control by inserting the card into the new control.
Paybit
PAYBIT function is available for NCT controls. This is an option for selling party to switch off the control in case of payment contention. The PAYBIT is a remote function. The
operating time is determined by the machine builder and is
saved in the memory of ESIC card of control. Any working
time can be set in hour resolution. After the setting time expired the control decreases the upper limit of speed range
shift (OVERRIDE) and decreases rapid traverse and feeding
speed for 8 hours by 20%. Decreasing speed is a warning
for user that the machine will stops in a few work tours. Manufacturer could switch off or set delay for PAYBIT by phone or
remote computer function. PAYBIT function is an option for us
if necessary.
Customer has to be informed about the PAYBIT function!

DIAGNOSTICS
Logbook
Creating Logs, sending log file
The inspection module of NCT inspects and records every
event and creates an event history!
The NCT 200 controls save each important event in a log
file. In case of any malfunction during the operation of the
unit, whether or not it was caused by error of servo system,
operator error, or error detected by PLC. This log file can
be sent to the NCT customer service center by email. Control will be an open book for NCT professionals by log life.
There is a tutorial video in Youtube to manage log files for
users (create an NCT 201 error log file).
Remote machine
Remote diagnostics can be performed by means of the “remote machine service”. If the customer can provide a login
facility to the NCT control the NCT technicians can connect
to the user interface and manipulate the CNC control from a
remote PC, no matter where the machine is located.
Auto parameter
setting
The NCT asynchronous servo drives are often connected to
motors without known, tested parameter set. The “auto parameter setting” function integrated in our asynchronous servo
drives is used to install these motors. The user only has to enter
into the CNC control the original parameters found on the
motor data plate. The servo drive software analyses and computes an optimal parameter set to achieve the best motor control. Of course the computed parameters will be refined,
saved and reloaded after adjustments.
Services to
help setting
servo axes
Diagnostic functions help error detection and tuning of servo
axes. The characteristics of commands issued by the path
generator, speed, position, tracking error (lag) of axes can
be displayed in the oscilloscope screen integrated in to the
control. By using circular test you can verify whether the settings and the operation of servo system are correct, without
using external unit. Of course the features can be displayed
in numeric format and in a chart.

DIAGNOSTICS
Oscilloscope
Oscilloscope with digital memory integrated in the control is
essential for accurate setting of servo drives. The signals displayed graphically in relation to time can be set in 4 channels
simultaneously. These can be signals of servo system, PLC IO
lines or state of internal flag bits or value of variables. Saving
starts when START button pressed is independent from fulfilling
triggering conditions. Measurement continues until available
memory for saving data is full if triggering conditions (channel, positive/negative transition) fulfilled. If data fills more than
a half of memory before fulfilling triggering condition than
saving continues until triggering point will be placed in the
middle of memory.
These settings can be saved and loaded. The inspecting part
can be searched, the selected interval could be increased,
decreased, the size of signal could be increased, decreased,
the signal could be offset vertically. The measuring results can
be saved in .xls file format to transfer them to an external computer for additional analysis.
Logic analyzer
The PLC connection signals and their condition can be selected by name and can be displayed in 18 analyzer channels, and they can be studied in relation to time on the control
screen. Any channel could be assigned as triggering source
either by falling or rising edge. Elapsed time from triggering
point or distance between any two moments can be measured. Measurement results can be saved in a selected file, or
measurement can be started immediately by loading any
saved configuration.
IO test
The IO lines which can be either “read/write”, or “read only”
by the PLC will be displayed in a clear table.. Some of these
are physical input and output signals between machine tool
and CNC, while others are the communication lines between
PLC and CNC. Bit setting (SET/RESET) or overwriting memory range is possible..
Symbolic IO
PLC variables can be displayed below each other in any convenient order. Name, address and contents of variables can
be displayed in binary or decimal representation..
TestMes measuring system test
The servo settings will always be performed by inserting the
expected parameter values in the displayed table. The required properties of the table can be selected by the softkeys
below.. The servo axes are displayed in the rows of the table,
while their properties are displayed in the columns of the
table.

SERVICES FOR INCREASED ACCURACY OF
MACHINE TOOLS
Reversal error
This is the basic compensation for each machine tool control.
Most of the time the movment of a slide is generated by the
rotation of a servomotor. When reversing direction, the motor
rotates for a short interval as the slide does not move yet, because of the backlash and flexibility of mechanical parts that
transform rotational motion into straight-line or rotational motion. This movement lag can be corrected by the value in the
“Backlash” parameter that compensates also linear and rotating axes.
Linear accuracy
The most commonly used and most appropriate measuring
device is the laser interferometer that measures the effective
position of axes between movements by 0,1 micron resolution. The measuring results can be saved in the Pitch Error
Compensation parameters of the CNC control and the measured position can be modified in each point based on these
data. The reversal error compensation will be performed automatically if the laser measurement is done in both directions
of an axis.
Reversal
acceleration
This compensation reduces significantly the oscillation of
servo axis and the dynamics of a machine tool equipped with
linear scale can be increased, even in case of very “loose”
mechanics. While machining with low feed or in circular interpolation the speed of the servomotor will be the highest
when the slide starts to move due to backlash. Usually there
will be a state of oscillation that is difficult to manage. The
reversal acceleration will speed up the servo motor and after
a preset time or distance the normal speed signal will be restored. This needs to be set the way, that when the slide starts
to move the servo drive has already been programmed for
the normal feed command.

SERVICES FOR INCREASED ACCURACY OF
MACHINE TOOLS
Stick slip
The phenomenon of stick slip can occur on wide flat box
ways where the stick slip compensation can be used effectively. The slide movement can be initiated by a “kick start”
through a parameter with preset time and speed impulse
value, and by immediately returning the speed to the normal
value as soon as the slide started to move. This eliminates
excess speed caused by increasing speed command generated by position control loop for stick slip. The position control
loop oscillated by excess speed significantly decreases the
dynamics of the servo circuit.
Straightness
The straightness of moving slides is essential for machine tools
as well as for the positioning accuracy. However, builders
tend to develop the best geometry and straightness for their
machine tools, improving machining or fitting accuracy above
a certain value is not practical. Electronic compensation can
be used efficiently in these cases. The straightness deviation
of axes has to be measured before adjusting the relevant parameter. The control manages to move axes perpendicular to
movement by setting the value after filling in measurement results.
Thermal
deformation
compensation
TDC
Compensation of thermal deformation based on temperature measurement
Direct position measurement by linear scale is a perfect solution that compensates thermal deformation of linear axes of
a machine tool. Although deformation of elements that can
not be or difficultly measured directly is a significant problem,
for example at the headstock of C column type milling machines. The headstock is heated by spindle bearings, spindle
motor, and cooled by coolant and the active cooling of spindle motor and spindle. Thermal deformation of headstock can
be compensated by self-adjusting software model integrated
in NCT control, based on signals of thermal measurement
sensors in headstock.

Recuperation braking
S
In case of recuperation, if capacitor has filled than energy flows into mains from
motor in generator running. Since machine tools have connected in common mains
with another consumers, they receive the generated energy so electricity meter rotates slower.
High capacity capacitor
S
Motor will be in generator running in braking, so energy flows to the servo drive, at
first, it fills the capacitor
Electronic gearbox
O
The electronic gearbox is cheaper than the mechanical construction and it has
lower current drain than a high power motor without gearbox. The users are always short of power and improving mains is very expensive. Furthermore it requires
smaller transistors, less capacitors, so the electronics is also cheaper.
Drain heat out from electric cabinet
produced by servo drives
S
Servo drives produce the most heat inside the electric cabinet. If this heat is drained
out from electric cabinet so it does not stoke the electric cabinet than it does not require energy for cooling electronics.
