Portescap: Servo drive for surveillance cameras, semiconductor wafer-handling processes, medical applications

Portescap’s LVD is a high-performance low-voltage servo drive designed to support small and large Brushed DC or Brushless motors.
FILED IN:  Controls  > Servos

Packed in a high power-density package, LVD is powered from a supply voltage of 12-48VDC, and is capable of 7Amps RMS continuous and 12Amps RMS peak current with CANopen® communication interface.  It offers extensive functionality with multiple I/O inputs and can be operated in Current, Velocity or Position modes. 

The drive operates at a voltage range of 12V to 48V and supports both BLDC and DC motors. Selectable switching frequencies provide support of low-inductance motors, making it a useful drive for surveillance cameras, semiconductor wafer handling processes, highly-sensitive medical applications, and more.

LVD’s space vector modulation current loop and highly-flexible tuning capabilities provide outstanding performance and accuracy, according to the company. In addition, LVD offers high sampling rates for the Velocity and Position loops, allowing wider bandwidth and increased accuracy.

The LVD measures only 117 x 83.5 x 21.5mm and weighs only 250g.  Provides 12Amps RMS peak current and switching frequency of up to 100 KHz.

LVD’s Axis Manager is an easy to use drive commissioning software featuring user-friendly windows for motor and feedback configuration, various control loops tuning, I/O setup window, and comprehensive monitoring and recording features.  The software communicates with the drive via RS232 or CANopen®.
