The ION Digital Drive distributed- control module combines network connectivity, positioning motion control, and power amplification in a rugged, easy-to-use package. This single-axis module is available for DC brush, brushless DC, and microstepping motors. To construct a complete low-cost multi-axis controller, one network-connected drive is used per axis. This highly integrated approach eliminates the wiring complexity and cost of dedicated motion control cards connecting to separate amplifiers. The drive performs profile generation, servo compensation, stall detection, and field oriented control. Multiple ION modules (up to 127) can be connected on a single network. It has an output capability to 15 A peak and 500 W at 56 V.
