Smart control

Control boards of the RTC family enable the intelligent and flexible control of scan systems, lasers and peripheral devices in real time. Thanks to the PCI Express or Ethernet interfaces, they can be integrated quickly and flexibly. Software with detailed documentation simplifies the integration into application programs. RTC control boards are supported by many software packages for laser applications – e.g. laserDESK.

Special Features of the RTC6 Control Board

SCANahead technology
Scan systems with SCANahead control3 operate independently from the scan speed with the maximal possible acceleration. Thanks to the RTC6, this potential for increasing productivity can be optimally exploited.

Data streaming4
Scan system status data and status of the RTC6 Ethernet control board can be permanently and job-independently transmitted to any application program.

Multiplexing
Scan systems with ISB controller board3 support the transmission of several scanning system parameters via the SL2-100 return channel to the RTC6. The data can be used for analysis and monitoring.

Standalone-Funktionalität4
PC-independent control of scan systems: Predefined laser jobs can be stored in flash memory and started by a system controller.

Short Vector Processing
Software extension for preprocessing short, collinear marks. This can significantly reduce process time in many cases. Short Vector DLL is an add-on software – contact us to find out more!

Linux-Unterstützung4
The RTC6 Ethernet control board can also be integrated into Linux systems. The full range of functions is supported.

RTC6 EtherBox

The RTC6 Ethernet is also available in a high-quality housing and can be quickly integrated into control cabinets thanks to the top-hat rail bracket.

Advantages:

  • Compact construction in a valuable design
  • Simple control cabinet integration via top-hat rail bracket
  • Synchronization of multiple RTC6 EtherBox units possible
