Ultra-Compact Dual/Quad Axis Universal Drive Module
ACS Motion Control has developed a unique addition to the SPiiPlus EtherCAT Control Solution family. The SPiiPlusUDMlc, or UDMlc, is a compact EtherCAT dual/quad axis drive, designed to meet the needs of OEMs designing control systems for motion demanding equipment which utilize small motors, such as pick/place machines, tabletop motion platforms, and wide format inspection/assembly equipment.
The UDMlc’s dual/quad-axis universal drives can run servo, stepper, and voice coil motors with a power range of 10W to 200W. The type of motor is selected by the user and can be set differently for each drive axis. The miniature size, low weight, and minimal cable interface makes the UDMlc ideal for mounting remotely on moving axes. It is available in three current levels (cont./peak per axis): 1.25/2.5A, 2.5/5A or 5/10A (dual axis version only), supports motor bus voltages from 15-48Vdc, and has inputs for four digital incremental and up to two absolute encoders.
