Parker Hannifin has announced its latest range of Compax3 intelligent servo drives designed to offer OEMs and end users a full range of drive solutions.

Compax3 servo drives are based on a common operating platform and have been developed for use in global applications.

The Compax3 range of single and multi-axis servo drives can operate between one and 110kVA, and are suitable for use with all common types of motors and actuators, including sine commutated synchronous and asynchronous motors, torque motors, linear servo motors and voice coil motors.

The system also supports a variety of different feedback technologies such as resolvers, sine cosine in single or multi-turn versions, Hiperface or Endat interfaces, analogue and digital hall sensors, and distance coded, rotary and linear encoders.

As an open system, Compax3 can be used with Profibus, CANopen, Devicenet, Ethercat and Powerlink protocols, and can also be supplied with a real-time drive bus for dynamic, multi-axis synchronised applications.

Compax3 drives utilise Parker’s Integrated Engineering Tool software, which uses PLCopen motion control function blocks and wizard technology to make setup, configuration and subsequent tuning and adjustment quick and simple.

In addition, the software includes features such as integrated online help, automatic debugging, IEC61131-3 programming, an oscilloscope function, and support for mechatronic systems through Motormanager and Hydraulicsmanager modules.

The Compax3 range of servo drives is available with a wide choice of options, and is supported globally by Parker’s network of manufacturing, sales and technology centres.

The company can provide dedicated system design and development, supply pre-configured systems ready for installation, and offers complete drive, pneumatics, hydraulics and mechatronic solutions.
