The Power Clipper Drive is an integrated Machine and Motion Controller combining the brain of the cutting edge Power PMAC processor, the unsurpassed custom-designed Digital Signal Processor Gate3 ASIC and the low voltage brawn of high performance MOSFET amplifier technology into a compact solution for more cost sensitive and OEM applications.
The Power Clipper Drive provides servo loop closure (position or torque) outputs:
The Power Clipper Drive can interface with one or a combination of the following types of motor feedback devices:
The Power Clipper Drive is a 3-board stack consisting of an amplifier section and the Power Clipper controller conncected by an interface board ”sandwiched” in the middle. The interface board provides connections that are common to the Power Clipper controller, but are more conveniently divided into individualised connectors.
