Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions introduced its IDEA programmable stepper motor drive. This compact electronic drive and fully programmable control unit features a patent pending graphic user interface. Programming the drive is through the use of on-screen buttons instead of complicated command sets or other proprietary programming languages. Other features include automatic population of the motor and drive parameters based on entering a Haydon actuator part number when prompted by the user interface. Complex parameter calculations or in-depth stepper motor knowledge from the user is completely unnecessary. For a more experienced user, default values can easily be adjusted as long as they remain within the safe range calculated by the software. The software allows the system designer to easily troubleshoot programs using line-by-line or multiple line program execution using the interactive debug feature. Inputs and outputs can also be simulated in software before ever connecting actual I/O hardware.
