Digital Motor Controller

The ION (R) digital drive from Performance Motion Devices (Lincoln, MA) now has power ranges of 500W and 3000W. This allows a wide range of motor types and sizes to be combined in multi-axes motion positioning applications.

altBoth the ION 500 and ION 3000 are available for DC brush, brushless DC and microstepping motors, and are ideal for medical, scientific, semiconductor, industrial, robotic and general automation applications. Based on PMD’s high performance Magellan(TM) Motion Processor, the drive provides CAN bus and serial communications, and accept commands over a network to control trajectory generation, position loop, current loop and other advanced motion control features.

The ION controls a 3-phase brushless motor using field oriented control or sinusoidal commutation. User selectable profiling modes include S-curve, trapezoidal, velocity contouring, electronic gearing and pulse & direction. Other features include hardware performance trace, on-the-fly profile changes, and PLC-style inputs and outputs.
