Technosoft unveiled its latest cost-effective, flexible servo drive, ISD860 that is based on the MotionChip™ DSP technology. The drive is developed specially for motion applications that need embedded high servo performance control, networking possibilities, intelligence and cost-optimized design. It is able to drive 31 A peak and 12 A continuous currents at a supply voltage from 12 VDC to 72 VDC with one PWM of 20 kHz frequency. ISD860 embeds Programmable logic controller (“PLC”), drive and motion controller functionality in one unit (measuring 136 x 84x 26 mm) and controls brushless, linear or DC motors up to 860 W continuous per 2.2 kW peak. Due to its advanced motion control algorithms, torque or speed over a wide array of dynamic conditions and a precise control of position can be achieved.
ISD860 can work in multi-axis, single-axis or stand alone configurations. Its motion programming, tuning and setup are simple with Technosoft Motion Language (“TML”) and EasyMotion Studio. Motion programming can be performed from a CAN master with ISD860, via PC/PLC, directly at drive level or using the motion library through a built-in motion controller. Its embedded TML has a high-level command protocol that can be used by the user through the on-board RS232/CAN serial interfaces. ISD860 CANopen version, supporting DSP-402 and DS-301 profiles, is also available. It can also be managed through analog inputs or programmable I/Os.
Multiple operations can be done with ISD860 using the TML language, such as changing motion modes and/or parameters, setting of various motion modes (PVT, profiles, PT, camming or electronic gearing, etc.), execution of program flow control or homing sequences. IDS860 can handle analog input signals and digital I/O, transfer data between axes and execute logic and arithmetic operations at the same time. The drive has the ability to control other axes through motion commands. In addition, ISD860 can synchronize all axes in a network or send commands to a group of axes.
Easy implementation and flexibility make the ISD860 servo drive an ideal solution to fulfill all higher-power motion axis control needs today through modern distributed intelligence architecture. It is perfect for cost-sensitive applications from medical automation to factory automation requiring enhanced compactness and high servo performance.
