Danaher Motion offers a solution for single- or multi-axis applications requiring high-speed performance or low-speed smoothness. Multi-step positioning capabilities convert full step indexing commands into smooth microstepping resolution, and are designed to power any 2-phase NEMA 23-42 step motor. Current settings, auto-smoothing, motor wave shaping, mid-band anti-resonance and current reduction are all selectable through switch settings. Currently available for ac operation, the system features a motion node option and an RS232 or RS485 multi-drop serial interface using the ModBus RTU protocol. Future options include CANopen and a full-featured indexer. For more information on the P7000 Stepper Drives, visit http://rbi.ims.ca/4919-523.
