Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions (www.HaydonKerk.com) has unveiled the Haydon RoHS compliant PCM7539X IDEA programmable stepper motor drive that can support up to 75VDC input voltage and a maximum output current of 3.85A RMS. Specifically developed to control larger-sized stepper linear actuators offered by the company, the new stepper motor drive features the same programmability as well as functionality as the lower-power IDEA drives.
Completing the platform’s power range, the PCM7539X allows the IDEA system to be utilized with any stepper motor product offered by the company. In particular, the PCM7539X programmable stepper motor is designed to control the bigger size 23 stepper motor units as well as size 34 stepper motor units.
Similar to all Haydon IDEA Drives, the compact PCM7539X is a fully programmable control unit that is easy to use. Featuring a patent-pending graphic user interface, the stepper motor drive can be programmed using on-screen buttons instead of other proprietary programming languages or complex command sets. The software enables the system designer to troubleshoot programs that use multiple line or line-by-line program execution through interactive debug feature. The software also has the ability to simulate inputs and outputs prior to connecting in actual I/O hardware.
The PCM7539X IDEA programmable stepper motor drive’s technical specifications include 12VDC to 75VDC input voltage, programmable current control, eight digital I/O points, memory for up to 75 stored motion control programs and drive current per phase of 3.85A RMS plus a 30 percent “current boost” function that can be used during ramping.
