Aerotech Introduces Ndrive MP Ultra-Compact Digital Servo Amplifier
Output current up to 10 A peak at 80 VDC; 5 A continuous output
PWM power stage
Integrated E-Stop sense input
Digital current, velocity, and position loops for improved motion stability
Optional software encoder multiplier for higher throughput and reduced wiring
Ultra compact, flexible design provides the ability to drive brushless and DC brush-type servomotors as well as stepping motorsThe Ndrive® MP digital servo amplifier is the ultra compact, high-performance discrete drive option for the Automation 3200 motion system. Only 41 mm wide by 141 mm high by 107 mm deep, the Ndrive® MP is capable of driving brushless, DC brush-type servomotors and stepper motors, and can perform both current loop and servo-loop closure to ensure the highest level of positioning performance and rate stability in a micro-sized package.Ndrive® MPs are built on high performance DSPs to allow them to perform complex calculations in real time. This processing capability allows Ndrive® MPs to sample the digital current loop and servo loop at a rate of 20 kHz. These amplifiers also handle both digital and analog I/O and encoder multiplication, providing a wide range of capabilities in a very small package.Standard options for the Ndrive® MP include software-based encoder multiplication, brake relay, additional I/O, and separate logic supply inputs for keep-alive operation during an E-Stop condition. Any combination of Ndrive® MP amplifiers can be used on the FireWire® network to allow the user to customize the system as needed.To learn more about the Ndrive® visit: www.aerotech.com.
