Linear Actuators with Programming Capability

Linear Actuators with Programming Capability

Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions' IDEA Drive technology is now available across the line of linear actuator products including the Size 17 stepper motor linear actuators, LRS and RGS linear rail systems and ScrewRail linear actuators. For maximum flexibility, the IDEA Drive is also available in a stand-alone compact programmable drive module that will operate all Haydon linear actuators up to and including the size 23.

The IDEA Drive technology utilizes a patent-pending Graphic User Interface that allows easy programming of the unit. Programming the IDEA Drive is through the use of on-screen buttons instead of command sets or other proprietary programming languages. The software allows the system designer to troubleshoot programs through line-by-line or multiple line program execution using the interactive "debug" feature. I/O can be simulated and tested in software before connecting any I/O hardware.

Other features include programmable current control, a single supply voltage of 12 to 48V dc, up to 2.6 Arms (3.68Apeak) max rated current per phase, and 8 opto-isolated general purpose I/O. The inputs are rated for 5 to 24V dc, 4mA max per input. The outputs are open collector, 5 to 24V dc, 200mA maximum per output.

The IDEA programmable system is useful for small gantry robots, motion systems for optics and lasers, high resolution imaging and precision fluid dispense.
