Product Focus: M-Series Multi-Axis Drive
The MP4 is a four-axis, high-performance, DC-powered drive for control of stepper or servo motors via CANopen. Each axis is configurable to drive a stepper, brushless, or brush motor. Using advanced FPGA technology, the MP4 provides a significant reduction in the cost per node by combining stepper and servo motors into a compact package. Each axis in the MP4 operates as an CANopen node under CiA-402 for motion control devices.
Supported modes include: Cyclic position/velocity/torque, Profile Position-Velocity, Interpolated Position Mode (PVT), and Homing. Servo mode allows position/velocity/torque control. Servo mode allows CANopen or digital PWM control of position/velocity/torque. In microstepping mode stepper command pulses and master encoder for camming or gearing is supported. Twenty-four high-speed digital inputs with programmable functions are provided. There are eight mosfet outputs that are 24V compatible.
Product Focus: AccelnetPlus Micro Modules Digital Servo Drives
AccelnetPlus Micro Modules -AEV & APV offers a compact footprint and a full feature set including STO, BiSS C capability, dual absolute encoder interface, and EtherCAT or CANopen communication protocols, the AEV/ APV packs a powerful punch in a small package. It offers up to 50 A peak at 90 Vdc and 20 A peak at 180 Vdc.
Safe Torque Off (STO) eliminates external contactors and wiring, reducing system cost and complexity. For safety critical applications, redundant STO disable inputs can be employed.
The new “EZ Board” option – AEZ provides connectivity to mount directly to equipment surfaces thus making it perfect for OEM integration.
Product Focus: Stepnet
Stepnet SPM is a high-performance, DC-powered servo drive for control of stepper motors via CANopen. The SPM operates as an CANopen node using DS-402 for motion control devices. Supported modes include: Profile Position, Profile Velocity, Interpolated Position Mode (PVT), and Homing. With encoder feedback, a stepper can be operated as a brushless servo motor enabling ±10V analog or digital PWM velocity or torque control in addition to CANopen. Direct position control from pulses in CW/CCW, Pulse/Dir, or Quad A/B encoder format works in either microstepping or servo modes. Twelve high-speed digital inputs with programmable functions are provided with a lower-speed input for a motor temperature switch.
Product Focus: Argus
The Argus line of products has been engineered to set new levels of performance, connectivity, and flexibility.
The Argus GPM sets new levels of performance, connectivity, and flexibility. It operates as a CAN node using the CANopen protocol of DSP-402 for motion control devices. Users will enjoy a range of supported modes, including: Profile Position-Velocity-Torque, Interpolated Position Mode (PVT), and Homing along with various supported encoders. Take advantage of both isolated and high-speed non-isolated I/O and enjoy the reliability of redundant power-stage inputs for safety critical applications.
