May 25, 2017 - Granite Devices, a Finnish servo drive manufacturer has released an industrial servo motor drive. IONI is designed with snap-on installation, built-in SIL2 safety functions and unforeseen compactness in 700 W class in a 70 x 37 x 7 mm form factor.
IONI implements industry standard, torque, velocity and position controls for AC, brushless DC, brushed DC, linear servo motors and stepping motors between 2 W and 700 W power.
IONI has the ability to perform multi-axis synchronous motion control out of non-realtime hosts, such as Windows PC with USB or Ethernet connection. This has been achieved by the means of hardware side trajectory buffering and distributed clock synchronization.
IONI Pro drive model holds support for incremental and sin/cos encoders as a standard feature. Drive connects directly to the fully open C/C++/C# programmable SimpleMotion bus as well as traditional digital pulse train and analog controllers.
IONICUBE and IONICUBE 1X motherboards are offered alongside with IONI drives for customers to build 1-4 axis solutions or larger motion control systems by chaining the motherboards. IONICUBE motherboard schematics are also offered in open source fashion for customers to build their own purpose-built motherboards.
