Pittman Introduces BGE Series servo motor controllers

September 23, 2015 - Pittman Introduces BGE Series family of compact 4-quadrant positioning motion controllers with integral output stage to control Pittman brushless and brushed DC motors.

The motion controllers can be operated in stand-alone operation with digital or analog I/O or as a slave in a CANopen network with device profile DSP 402, protocol DS 301. The family of motion controllers is rated from 12VDC to 60VDC input voltage and 4 amp to 20 amp continuous output current.

Information about the motor’s rotor position can be supplied to the positioning controller by an encoder or integrated Hall sensors contained within a brushless motor. The controls incorporate protection against over-voltage, low voltage and excessive temperature.

If 4-quadrant digital speed control is desired, the control can be commanded to run in either direction, stop and hold with torque, and stop without torque (coast) through digital inputs. Other inputs can switch between programmed speeds or allow for a variable analog speed reference.

Accel/decal ramps for the motor also can be programmed. The control offers the capability for a motor to function as a stand-alone or programmed servo, which interfaces to the rest of the machine via digital and analog IO.

The BGE Series electronic controllers offer many different modes of operation to choose from, such as analog or digital torque control, analog or digital speed control and digitally selectable position control (relative, absolute, and modulo). The controls incorporate protection against over-voltage, low voltage and excessive temperature.

Designed for volume OEM applications, BGE Series electronic controllers offer a design alternative for restricted space applications where the additional length of an integral control motor may not be feasible. They also can be encapsulated to provide additional protection in extreme environmental conditions.

If only speed control is required for an application, the BGE 3004A, a cost-optimized 1 quadrant controller, is available.
