ION/CME N-Series Standalone, Compact PCB-mountable Intelligent Motion Controller
ION/CME N-Series Digital Drives are compact, PCB-mountable modules that provide high-performance motion control, network connectivity, and power amplification for Brushless DC, DC Brush, and step motors. Fully programmable, these powerful members of the ION® 500 Digital Drive family allow designers to download and run application programs directly on the ION itself. Three power output levels are available - 75, 350, and 1,000 watts, and communication options include Ethernet, CAN, RS232, RS485, and SPI. N-Series IONs perform profile generation, PID servo compensation, direct encoder input, field-oriented control, and many other motion control functions. These miniature devices are ideal for creating embedded control solutions for medical, mobile, scientific, semiconductor, and a host of other automation applications.
At the core of every N-Series ION is a Magellan IC that speaks PMD's common language C-Motion, thereby ensuring compatibility with the entire range of PMD motion control products.
