Alongside precision couplings, gears and intelligent motion control, Reliance Precision Mechatronics, the UK distributor for Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions Inc., a premier manufacturer of engineered linear motion products, announces the RoHS compliant PCM7539X IDEATM programmable stepper motor drive, capable of a 75Vdc input voltage and a max output current of 3.85A RMS. This unit is designed to control the larger size stepper motor linear actuators offered by Haydon Kerk and has the same functionality and programmability as the lower-power IDEA drives.
The introduction of the PCM7539X completes the power range for the platform and allows the popular IDEA system to be used with any stepper motor product currently offered by Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions. The PCM7539X in particular is designed to control the larger size 23 and size 34 stepper motor units.
Like all Haydon IDEA Drives, the PCM7539X is a compact, easy-to-use electronic drive and fully programmable control unit with a patent-pending graphic user interface. Programming the drive is through the use of on-screen buttons instead of complicated command sets or other proprietary programming languages. The software allows the system designer to easily troubleshoot programs that use line-by-line or multiple line program execution using the interactive debug feature. Inputs and outputs can also be simulated in software before connecting to actual I/O hardware.
Technical specifications for the PCM7539X include programmable current control, 12Vdc to 75Vdc input voltage, drive current per phase of 3.85A RMS plus a 30% "current boost" function for use during ramping, 8 digital I/O points, and memory for up to 75 stored motion control programs.
