Low cost, plug-and-play motion control
Van Nuys, California – The Sonata series of motion control systems from Optimal Engineering Systems (OES) is a stand-alone, easy-to-use, plug-and-play, cost effective solution for motion control applications. The systems in this series support up to three axes of motion, in any combination of steppers, DC servo and brushless servomotors, and voice coil motors.
Each system includes the power supplies, the motion controller, the micro-stepper and/or servo motor drivers. The operator interface terminal makes the system completely stand-alone and allows the operator to interact with the motion controller without needing an additional PC. The system can also be operated using an analog joystick or a trackball. The speed of the motor is proportional to the tilt angle of the joystick or the rotational speed of the trackball. Using the 4-line LCD and 32-button keypad, the user can enter motion parameters and select different modes of operation.
Power supply options include: 115VAC or 230VAC (standard) and 12VDC to 80VDC (optional). The power supply will be selected to meet the customer’s requirements. The available wattages are 80W, 160W, 240W, 400W, and 500W. Options available for these Plug-and-Play systems include, motors, encoders, drivers, and cabling. Measuring just 10.000" x 10.800" x 4.875" (265mm x 265mm x 124mm), or in a 19" (482.6mm) rack mount enclosure, the Sonata motion control systems are easy to install.
