QuickSilver Controls, Inc. has announced the availability of the SilverMax line of hybrid servo motors. Hybrid servos provide superior continuous torque at low speeds transitioning to nearly constant power curves up to 4,000 rpm. They are well suited to direct drive of lead screws and belt drives, typically eliminating the need for gear heads. The PVIA control system includes patented damping methods to allow wide ranges of inertial mismatch without retuning or notch filters.
The interpretative command language allows for easy program creation/modification/debug using the free QuickControl® environment available from the company’s web site. The programming environment provides for two programming threads in addition to an active motion. Serial communications include MODBUS® RTU, 8bit ASCII, 9bit binary, and DMX512. CANopen® is simultaneously available with the serial options.
Seven I/O are provided for external interfacing. Programmable terminations allow the I/O to be pulled high, low, or floated while in input mode. All of the I/O may also be used as analog inputs, with one channel supporting 0-10 V analog control.
