Made to keep up with higher reliability and smaller space demands, this new series has a protection circuit against the load short or open operation, and a space-saving built-in resistor for current sense. The peripheral circuit design is simpler with a common interface signal and series pin compatibility. The series is more reliable with a built-in motor coil, short and open-circuit protection, and varied lout lineout (1 A, 1.5 A, 2 A, 3 A). Clock-in topology reduces control signal wire and micro-computer load, with ICs built into a logic circuit to control excitation switching and D/A converter. The series has both microstep type and full/half-step type. Unlike other motor drive series, the SLA7070M is designed to make pin alignments and interface specification compatible.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
