Centroid Hickory CNC Controller

Centroid "Hickory" EtherCat based closed loop CNC Controller.
A reliable, high performance, industrial quality CNC control. Hickory utilizes an integrated Motion Control CPU and communicates with both the CNCPC and the Servo Drives via a fast and reliable EtherCat connection. The Hickory is an 8 axis CNC control board. Perfect for many types of machine tools such as: CNC milling machines of all types, Turning Centers, and a wide variety of CNC Routers and other specialty applications. Typically used on CNC machine tools where a high performance CNC control is needed. Hickory utilizes only approved AC brushless servos with EtherCat communication protocol, compatible drives with Hickory are: Yaskawa Sigma 7, Glentek Gamma series, Estun Summa, Leadshine EL7 and EL8, Inovance SV660N, and Delta ASDA-B3-E and the ASDA-B3A-E. More makes and models will be added to the compatibility list as we test them. Currently there is no guarantee from Centroid when using Hickory with any other drive other than the Centroid curated drives listed. We welcome the opportunity to test others as well.

Hickory significantly reduces electrical cabinet cabling and labor. Hickory is absolute encoder compatible which further reduces cabling, labor and cost to install the CNC control, as well as added convenience to the operators day to day operation in time savings, reduced mistakes and scrap parts due to the elimination of machine homing and resetting of work coordinate systems, the machine always knows where it is at even when the power is off.

    •   What Ethercat drives are currently supported by the Centroid Hickory Control Board?

    •   The current supported drives are: Yaskawa Sigma 7, the Glentek Gamma series, Estun Summa, Leadshine EL7 and EL8, Inovance SV660N, and the Delta ASDA-B3-E and the ASDA-B3A-E. More drives may be supported in the future but currently these are the only drives the Hickory CNC Control Board supports.

    •   What is Ethercat?

    •   EtherCAT is an Ethernet-based fieldbus system invented by Beckhoff Automation. It makes machines and systems faster, simpler and more cost-effective to setup and operate. Ethercat communicates over shielded ethernet cables, connected from the Hickory CNC Control Board to the first device in the Ethercat chain, which connects to the second device, and so on.

Includes all the features of Ultimate, PLUS 6 axis simultaneous interpolated motion CNC software.

Allin1DC can command up to 6 axis drivers, Hickory and Oak can command up to 8 axis drivers, with or without this option. This option allows: Simultaneous Coordinated Interpolated motion of individual axes involving 5 or more axes which is a regulated technology by the US government. (If you are outside the US we will provide and ask you to sign two documents, a letter of assurance and a letter of certification for our records).

Most users do not require this feature. Don't confuse True interpolated 5+ axis motion with simply having 5 or more drive ports on the CNC control board that all can command and move 5 or more axes. Allin1DC, Hickory, and Oak without this 6 axis simultaneous software is considered a 4+2 system. Which is: Fully interpolated motion for ANY four axis in ANY combination at ANY given time. For instance XYZW, XWAB, ABCW, ZWAB, XYAB, ZYAB, etc..

These Leadshine EL7 EtherCAT drive/motor/cable packages have been curated by Centroid with extensive testing on various Hickory equipped CNC machine tools at our facility here in Central Pennsylvania USA.

These packages consist of compatible AC Servo Motors, EtherCat Servo Drives and the corresponding Cables you need for your next CNC machine tool project, simply pick the motor size, type and cable length.

These packages include: The EL7 EtherCAT Drive which is paired with the Absolute Encoder equipped ELM2 Leadshine Servo motor and the matching battery backup encoder cable and power cables.

- Hickory and these packages provide Absolute Encoder functionality! That means the machine always knows where it is at even when powered off.
- Daily CNC machine homing is eliminated with absolute encoders!
- Any paired axes will always square to each other when powered up.
- Limit and Home switches are optional and unnecessary.
- Daisy Chain connection from Hickory to the EL7 drive and all subsequent drives simplfies cabling installation and reduces both cable and labor costs.
- Utilizes off the shelf sheilded ethernet cables

International Shipments drop ship direct from Leadshine HQ in China


When choosing the motor type note the motor physical size, power rating, useful RPM when sizing to your application.

For example, looking at a 750 watt motor drive package the basic data is: 750 watt (80 mm frame, 3000 rpm, 2.39 N-m cont., 5000 max rpm)

Where the "80 mm frame" refers to the square face frame size of the 750 watt motor. Reference the complete ELM2 servo motor dimensional specifications here.

and the "3000 rpm" refers to the useful, normal RPM range of the 750 watt motor (0-3000)

and "2.39 N-m" is the useful, normal continuous torque output of the 750 watt motor in Newton Meters

and the "5000 max rpm" is the maximum RPM of the 750 watt servo motor, this max rpm can be reached for short periods by the motor as long as the motor load is not excessive. Note: Torque will fall off from the continuous torque rating above the useful RPM, in this example 3000 rpm.

Gear and Size the machine tool kinematics for the desired results (machine max rates, accuracy and power) if in doubt its always best to use the next size larger servo motor/drive package.

Centroid Operator's Control Pendant for Hickory CNC Controllers (#15298):
Centroid CNC software allows operator machine control through a number of different methods.
This Operator's Control Pendant is for when hard buttons are preferred over touch screen controls. Useful on large and small machine tools alike when setting up parts, fixtures and tools, the pendant allows the operator to take the controls to where the work is. Steel case with magnets on the back and rubber handles, this control pendant uses the same operator control panel found in the M400/T400 CNC console but terminated for use with our Hickory ECat ethernet control protocol.
The control panel can be removed from the pendant and flush mounted in your own console enclosure as well.

A lower cost ($0) alternative to this piece of hardware is the software based Touch Screen Virtual Machine Control Panel (VCP). The VCP allows the functionality of this Hardware based Operators Control Pendant when using a Touch Screen LCD as the CNC control display. The Touch Screen VCP is included with Centroid CNC control software CNC12 v4.12+ and can be used without or in conjunction with this hardware based Operator's Control Pendant.

Longer cords up to 50' are available call for quote or just use the Wireless MPG for long distance applications.

Same control panel that is on the M400/T400 CNC consoles but placed in a box with a 20' cord.

Three different input voltages can be used: 5 volts, 12 volts and 24 volt. Input voltages are mix and match capable and are selectable via bank of four of inputs at a time with the provided plug-in SIP (Single In-line Pack) resistors. The default input voltage is 24 VDC.

Both the ECat1616 and Relay 8 modules provide both Din Rail mounting holes and Standoff mounting holes to allow the DIY installer a wide variety of mounting possibilities!

The provided dedicated power supply is sized properly to provide enough power to drive the 16 relays. There are indicator LED’s on ECat1616 Inputs and on the Relay 8 Modules that indicate the state of the Inputs and Outputs.
