Ministepping drive with state of the art indexer

Parker Hannifin’s new PDFX package combines a high performance ministepping drive unit and intelligent switch-mode power supply with a state of the art indexer. Developed specifically to minimise the programming effort needed for high functionality applications, the indexer employs an event-driven motion control language that the company says sets a new standard in control flexibility.

A typical program to execute alternative move profiles in response to two independent external events comprises just 10 commands, representing a significant reduction in programming time and effort. The PDFX package is available with a choice of 2.5A and 5A power stages, suitable for two phase stepper motors up to frame size 34.
