Performance Motion Devices, Inc. (PMD) is a world leader in motion control technology for life sciences, robotics, and industrial automation. PMD delivers a broad range of advanced electronic motion control products including integrated circuits, digital amplifiers, digital drives, and boards to a worldwide customer base.
PMD's motto, Motion Control At Its Core, reflects our uniquely powerful strategy of placing motion control ICs at the core of all of our products so that they speak one common motion language.
PMD was founded in 1992 and is headquartered near Boston, Massachusetts. We distribute our products in the US and throughout the world and are the motion partner of choice to many of the world's leading manufacturers of laboratory equipment, medical automation, and robotics.
PMD announced the availability of products through Mouser Electronics. Through this agreement, Mouser will now distribute PMD's Magellan, Juno, ION, Atlas, and Prodigy families.
In the recent edition of Motion Control News, we tackle the challenges with small motion control machine designs, servo motor tuning, a deep dive into FOC, and more.
New Juno Velocity Control ICs deliver breakthrough velocity motion control of 3-phase Brushless DC and DC Brush motors.
This paper provides an overview of PID (proportional, integral, derivative) based servo motor tuning, and introduces two manual tuning methods.
