Description

ION®/CME N-Series Digital Drives are compact, PCB-mountable versions of PMD’s ION Digital Drive family that provide high-performance motion control, network connectivity and amplification. Three power output levels are available - 75, 350, and 1,000 Watts. All IONs can drive DC Brush, Brushless DC and step motors, and are ideal for medical, mobile, scientific, semiconductor, and other automation applications.

Powerful Features

ION/CME N-Series Digital Drives provide high power density in a patented ultra-rugged form factor. They perform profile generation, servo compensation, stall detection, field oriented control, digital torque control and many other motion control functions. Additional features include Ethernet, CAN, serial, and SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) communications.

Time to Market Breakthrough

N-Series IONs represent a new paradigm for building application specific controllers. Instead of designing boards from the ground up with dozens or hundreds of IC components, plug and play N-Series ION modules allow fully functional custom boards to be designed and produced in weeks instead of months or even years.

Easy to Use and Program

Working with PMD’s powerful Pro-Motion® Windows based GUI makes it easy to graph and analyze motion control performance, while the onboard C-Motion® Engine allows users to directly run their application on the N-Series ION. Most importantly, at the core of every ION/CME N-Series Digital Drive is a PMD Magellan Motion Control IC, guaranteeing software compatibility and ensuring performance and reliability second to none.

Developer Kit Part Numbers (Pre-assembled)

Pre-assembled Developer Kits

The following ION/CME N-Series Digital Drive Developer Kits are fully assembled and installed with a multi-motor ION unit type. These various P/Ns represent three different host interface types (serial, CAN/SPI, Ethernet) and three different power levels (low, medum, high):

DK P/N ION P/N Installed Host Interface Power Level
DK481S0056/02 DD481S0056/02 Serial Low
DK481S0056/06 DD481S0056/06 Serial Medium

Developer Kit Part Numbers (Non Pre-assembled)

N-Series ION Non Pre-Assembled DKs

There may be occasions where it is preferable for the user to assemble an N-Series ION developer kit themselves. The main advantage of this is that it allows developer kit setups to be created with N-Series IONs other than the multi-motor type.

To facilitate this three non pre-assembled component developer kits are available.

DK P/N Host Interface Comments
DK4X1S Serial Supports all serial host interface N-Series ION units
DK4X1C CAN/SPI Supports all CAN/SPI host interface N-Series ION units
DK4X1D Ethernet Supports all Ethernet host interface N-Series ION units

 

Part Numbers

There are 36 different ION/CME N-Series Digital Drives in all, consisting of the combinations of four motor types (step motor, Brushless DC, DC Brush, Multi-Motor), three host interfaces (Serial, CAN/SPI, Ethernet), and three power levels (low, medium, high). Note that multi-motor units allow the motor type, either Brushless DC, DC Brush, or step motor, to be user programmed.

The following table shows the available N-Series ION part numbers:
