Covina, Cal. – Quicksilver Controls’ new 48-page catalog provides a review of the full range of QuickSilver’s motors, drives and controls that feature their high pole count, 2-phase permanent magnet motors when operated in a vector control mode as a full 4 quadrant servo motor system. QuickSilver’s electronic drives and controls use size 17, 23, and 34 hybrid step motors as full brushless servo motors. Copious motor performance torque-speed curves are supplied.
Continuous torque for the smaller size 17 brushless PM motor starts at 35 oz-in at 900RPM (3W) duty up to 700 oz-in at 1500RPM (770W) for the size 34 brushless servo motor. Maximum speeds are 4000RPM. The SilverDust controls product line has RS232, RS435 and CANopen protocols with Ethernet and Modbus TCP as an option. Currents range from 3.5A in the smaller size 17 and 23 SilverDust drives and up to 10A in the larger size 34. Typical input voltages are 12 to 48VDC.
The SilverDust controller uses sophisticated motion control algorithms to maximize the high torque capability and properly handle very high load inertias reaching a 100:1 inertia mismatch.
