PITTMAN Motors of AMETEK Precision Motion Control now sells BGE Series of servomotor controllers, compact four-quadrant positioning motion controllers with integral output stage to control Pittman brushless and brushed dc motors.
The motion controllers work in stand-alone operation with digital or analog IO or as a slave in a CANopen network with device profile DSP 402, protocol DS 301. Ratings are from 12Vdc to 60Vdc input voltage and 4 to 20 A continuous output current.
The BGE Series controllers are suitable for use with Pittman brushless or brushed dc motors. Information about the motor’s rotor position can go to the positioning controller by an encoder or integrated Hall sensors within a brushless motor. The controls incorporate protection against over-voltage, low voltage and excessive temperature. More after the jump.
If the design needs four-quadrant digital speed control, the control can run in either direction, stop and hold with torque, and stop without torque (coast) through digital inputs. Other inputs can switch between programmed speeds or allow for a variable analog speed reference.
Designers can also program acceleration-deceleration ramps for the motor. The control can run a motor to function as a stand-alone or programmed servo interfacing to the rest of the machine via digital and analog IO.
The BGE Series electronic controllers offer many different modes of operation … analog or digital torque control, analog or digital speed control and digitally selectable position control (relative, absolute, and modulo). The controls incorporate protection against over-voltage, low voltage and excessive temperature.
Designed for volume OEM applications, BGE Series electronic controllers offer a design alternative for restricted space applications where the additional length of an integral control motor may not be feasible. They also can be encapsulated to provide additional protection in extreme environmental conditions.
If only speed control is required for an application, the BGE 3004A, a cost-optimized 1 quadrant controller, is available. BGE controllers are available from stock at the Pittman Express E-Commerce store. For more information (including specifications and manuals) visit www.pittmanexpress.com.
