WITH its “plug in and spin” design, the Parker Aries family of compact digital servo drives, available from Motion Solutions Australia , requires no set up.
The drive automatically configures when any Compumotor “smart encoder” motor is attached.
Available in four versions (100, 200, 400 and 750W), the Aries family is a robust and cost-effective digital servo product. Users pay only for the level of performance they need.
Unlike competitors’ products, the Aries family is designed with open architecture in mind. This means Aries family servo drives can be configured for use with any manufacturer’s motion controller and servo motor.
The Aries comes standard as a torque-only amplifier but is software selectable to run in velocity mode.
The units can be set with ±10V torque control. This allows use with any controller offering a standard analogue command output.
Standard high-density D-sub connectors featured in the Aries family allow easy connectivity to any system.
An optional step-and-direction version is also available which can replace stepper systems. This version also allows current step-and-direction command interfaces to be retained.
Aries compact digital servo motors operate on 120/240V ac input with optional 120/240V ac deep alive circuitry.
The servo motors are CE (EMC & LVD) and UL compliant.
Each unit has a brake relay and optional velocity and step-and-direction signal inputs.
