Small PCB-mountable Intelligent Motion Controllers
Featured Product from Performance Motion Devices
ION®/CME N-Series Digital Drives are compact, PCB-mountable modules that provide high-performance motion control, network connectivity, and power amplification for Brushless DC, DC Brush, and step motors. Fully programmable, these powerful members of the ION® 500 Digital Drive family allow designers to download and run application programs directly on the ION itself. Three power output levels are available - 75, 350, and 1,000 watts, and communication options include Ethernet, CAN, RS232, RS485, and SPI. N-Series IONs perform profile generation, PID servo compensation, direct encoder input, field-oriented control, and many other motion control functions. These miniature devices are ideal for creating embedded control solutions for medical, mobile, scientific, semiconductor, and a host of other automation applications.
ION/CME N-Series Digital Drives provide high power density in a patented ultra-rugged form factor. They perform profile generation, servo compensation, stall detection, field oriented control, digital torque control and many other motion control functions. Additional features include Ethernet, CAN, serial, and SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) communications.
Time to Market Breakthrough
N-Series IONs represent a new paradigm for building application-specific controllers. Instead of designing boards from the ground up with dozens or hundreds of IC components, plug and play N-Series ION modules allow fully functional custom boards to be designed and produced in weeks instead of months or even years.
Easy to Use and Program
Working with PMD’s powerful Pro-Motion® Windows-based GUI makes it easy to graph and analyze motion control performance, while the onboard C-Motion® Engine allows users to directly run their application on the N-Series ION. Most importantly, at the core of every ION/CME N-Series Digital Drive is a PMD Magellan Motion Control IC, guaranteeing software compatibility and ensuring performance and reliability second to none.
