The AZ Series Compact Driver works with a variety of AlphaStep AZ Series, DC input products. This driver can be controlled using RS-485 communication and daisy chained to maximize design, space and improve installation time. The Compact Driver is also designed to be close to the motor, making it ideal for Robotic type applications.
The elimination of switches and I/O connectors allows for a compact and lightweight design. The driver utilizes the MEXE02 Support Software, available as a free download.
Compact and Lightweight Design
The driver's compact design allows for installation in tight spaces otherwise impossible with traditional drivers. The AZ Series Compact Driver weighs just 39 g (1.4 oz). Even when installed on moving components, reduction of the load torque and inertial moment is possible, resulting in more freedom in mechanical and control cabinet design.
In addition, by installing the driver close to the motor, the connection cables can be shortened, resulting in reduced equipment weight, decreased cost, simplified design and a reduction of complicated wiring.
