Waterbury, CT – Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions IDEA™ Drive technology is now available across the line of linear actuator products including the Size 17 stepper motor linear actuators, LRS™ and RGS® linear rail systems, and ScrewRail® linear actuators. For maximum flexibility, the IDEA Drive is also available in a stand-alone compact programmable drive module that will operate all Haydon™ linear actuators up to and including the size 23.
The IDEA Drive technology is unique; it utilizes a patent-pending Graphic User Interface that allows easy programming of the unit. Programming the IDEA Drive is through the use of on-screen buttons instead of complicated command sets or other proprietary programming languages. The software allows the system designer to easily troubleshoot programs through line-by-line or multiple line program execution using the interactive “debug” feature. I/O can be simulated and tested in software before connecting any I/O hardware.
Other features include programmable current control, a single supply voltage of 12 to 48 VDC, up to 2.6Arms (3.68Apeak) max rated current per phase, and 8 opto-isolated general purpose I/O. The inputs are rated for 5 to 24 VDC, 4mA max per input. The outputs are open collector, 5 to 24 VDC, 200mA maximum per output.
The IDEA programmable system is perfect for small gantry robots, motion systems for optics and lasers, high resolution imaging, precision fluid dispense, and other applications requiring precision linear motion. To learn more, visit www.HaydonKerk.com.
