Microstepping Drive exhibits servo-like performance.

Press Release Summary:




Pacific Scientific P7000 Series offers Encoderless Stall Detection(TM), down to and including rest, without use of separate feedback device. Use of multi-step positioning converts full step indexing commands into smooth microstepping resolution. Available for AC or DC operation, series powers any 2-phase NEMA step motor and features current auto-tuning techniques and Motion Node option that supports ModBus RTU, CAN Open, or DeviceNet network protocols.

Danaher Motion Introduces Pacific Scientific Microstepping Drive with Servo-Like Performance



P7000 is ideal choice for high-speed performance or low-speed smoothness

ROCKFORD, IL - Danaher Motion introduces Pacific Scientific P7000 Series microstepping drives. Advanced functionality supported by industry-standard communications options allows the P7000 to provide true servo-like performance at a lower cost than conventional servo drives.

The P7000 is the only microstepping drive available today to offer reliable Encoderless Stall Detection(TM), down to and including rest, without the use of a separate feedback device. Additionally, these drives use multi-step positioning to convert full step indexing commands into smooth microstepping resolution, making them the only microstepping drive available today with this functionality. This allows users, for the cost of a new drive, to significantly increase machine performance without having to redesign the machine control architecture.

Available for AC or DC operation, the P7000 is designed to power any 2-phase NEMA step motor. Its advanced current auto-tuning techniques make it an ideal solution for single or multi-axis applications that require high-speed performance or low speed smoothness.

A Motion Node option that supports ModBus RTU, CAN Open, or DeviceNet network protocols adds enhanced indexing capabilities at significant savings when compared to the cost of a standard indexer. Because the P7000 can connect to industry-standard networks, users can add positioning capability at a fraction of the cost of using a fully-programmable controller. Users select the intelligent drive that connects to the machine control network of their choice.
