Now with EPICS and TANGO compatibility running onboard or remotely, the new Power Brick LV-IMS offers the scientific communities around the world a powerful integrated package.
Using fully programmable four-quadrant four-phase technology in the eight axis amplifier stage, the power PMAC-LV-IMS is capable of running any mix of stepper, AC servo or DC servo motors. Having unique software control of the current in each axis allows the user to fully customise each application. Each block of four axes comes in three different current ratings of: 0.25A continuous 0.75A peak; 1.0A continuous 3.0A peak; and 5.0A continuous 15A peak. All current ranges operate between 12 and 48VDC.
As well as standard quadrature encoder inputs, both versions come complete with a range of serial encoder interfaces. These include Endat 2.2, Hiperface, SSI, Yaskawa Sigma II, and Tamagawa. For more recent and future protocols, not included in the DSPgate3, provision has been made to fit a mezzanine board to facilitate the use of these and analogue sin/cos and resolver feedback devices.
The Delta Tau MACRO (Machine And Control Ring Optical) interface now comes as standard, enabling the controller to control 32 axes. It also allows any Delta Tau MACRO product such as I/O, analogue interfaces or amplifiers to be added to the systems.
