PACIFIC Scientific’s new range of digital micro-stepping drives are making a name for themselves for their ability to perform up to 63 linked moves, each with independent acceleration and deceleration.
Available from Motion Technologies , their unique level of smoothness and high speed performance have also added to their appeal.
The capacity of the unit to perform indexing moves through communication by the input configuration or by the serial port removes the need for external control devices.
Moves can be chained conditionally together, can include delay functions and the units’ I/O can be used to initiate motions on other axes controlled by other P7000 drives. This capacity can be accessed through the inclusion of the motion node indexing option at a fraction of the cost of even the simplest motion controller.
A demonstration unit is available at Motion Technologies. Technical support from the company’s locally based engineering team can assist in identifying the most suitable motor and drive combination for an application through the use of MOTIONEERING software, which is available at no extra cost.
