HaydonKerk Motion Solutions™, a premier manufacturer of linear motion products, introduces the MotoDrive™PDE Actuator, available in size 17 single or double stack.
The MotoDrive PDE Actuator is an integrated linear actuator and electronic drive designed to operate with optically isolated inputs of pulse, direction and enable signals. The MotoDrive PDE is programmable for micro-stepping ranging from full step mode to 64 micro steps per full step. Step resolution ranges from 200 full steps per revolution to 12,800 steps per revolution when micro-stepping. When combined with the Haydon™ captive, non-captive, or external linear actuator, extremely fine positioning resolutions can be achieved. With a supply voltage of 12 to 42 vdc, the MotoDrive PDE Actuator functions with a run current programmable at HaydonKerk up to 2.6 Arms per phase. The drive direction is enabled with logic level voltage, and is activated using +5 vdc. Further, when operated at ground potential, the drive results in a retract move of the actuator, allowing for multi-functional and flexible usage. Hold current on the drive is adjustable and can be selected as zero, 25, 50, 75 or 100 percent of run current using a jumper and associated pins located in a connector on the side of the drive. A logic signal of 5 vdc needs to be provided to the board for operation. For more information on the MotoDrive PDE actuator, please contact HaydonKerk Motion Solutions at info@HaydonKerk.com.
