Digital Driver Adds Field Oriented Control for Increased Motor Efficiency
The ION Digital Drive from Performance Motion Devices, Inc. is a fully enclosed, single-axis module that provides high performance motion control, network connectivity, and amplification in a rugged, easy-to-use package for DC brush, brushless DC or step motors. The module utilizes the MagellanTM Motion Processor, which provides a flexible and powerful instruction set to initialize and control the motion application, monitor performance, and synchronize overall behavior. In addition to field oriented control, the device performs profile generation, servo compensation, stall detection, digital torque control, and many other motion control functions. It can be programmed using Pro-Motion, a Windows-based exerciser which allows quick and easy drive set up or C-Motion and VB-Motion software libraries which let users develop their own applications in C/C++ or Visual Basic. The ION Drive is CE marked and RoHS compliant. Prices start at $199 in OEM quantities.
