December 6, 2012 - ACS Motion Control introduces SPiiPlusUDMLC drive modules. The SPiiPlusUDM is a series of small footprint EtherCAT modules with dual/quad-axis universal drives for servo, stepper, and voice coil motors with a power range of 10W to 200W.
The type of motor is selected by the user and can be set differently for each drive.This product addresses the needs of demanding multi-axis motion applications with limited space, such as moving inspection heads, small manipulators, and table-top motion stages.
The miniature size, low weight, and minimal cable interface makes the SPiiPlusUDM ideal for mounting remotely on moving axes. It is available in three current levels (cont./peak per axis): 1.25/2.5A, 2.5/5A or 5/10A (dual axis version only), and has inputs for four digital incremental and two absolute encoders.
The unit is powered by a 12 to 48Vdc motor bus voltage supply and by a separate 15 to 48Vdc control supply that keeps all logic signals alive during emergency conditions. The SPiiPlusUDM is panel or din rail mountable.
