Haydon Kerk Intros Stepper Motor Controller
Stepper motor control.
Waterbury, CT — Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions has introduced the Haydon RoHS-compliant PCM7539X IDEA 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 the company and has the same functionality and programmability as the lower-power IDEA drives.

The introduction of this stepper motor drive completes the power range for the platform and allows the popular IDEA system to be used with any stepper motor product currently offered by the company. The new product is designed to control the larger size 23 and size 34 stepper motor units.

Like all the company's IDEA Drives, the new unit is a compact, easy-to-use electronic drive and fully programmable control unit with a patent-pending graphic user interface.

Programming the drive is performed 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 also can be simulated in software before ever connecting actual I/O hardware.

Technical specifications include programmable current control, 12VDC to 75VDC input voltage, drive current per phase of 3.85A rms plus a 30 percent "current boost" function for use during ramping, 8 digital I/O points, and memory for up to 75 stored motion control programs.
