A wide range of drive controllers and motors provides the drive solution that perfectly fits each mechanical engineering requirement. The scalability of the solution ensures the appropriate dynamic performance and control quality as well as optimal energy efficiency.
Drive technology for machine automation
The components of the E°Darc range allow for the configuration of suitable drive systems with comprehensive functionalities and excellent drive performance, from simple transport tasks to complex applications. For 200 W up to 18 kW, the application-specific selection ensures suitably dimensioned solutions. This guarantees high economy in purchase and operation.
E°Darc C - Servo controllers in FPGA architecture
The newly developed servo controller E°Darc C (2 to 16 kW) transforms the potential of modern FPGA technology into tangible technical benefits for demanding mechanical engineers. It best displays its strengths where high levels of control quality and dynamic performance as well as absolute safety are required. Its RePower option ensures optimal energy yield. Due to the Open Motion Controller Platform (OMCP), algorithms developed by the customer can be easily integrated into the controller software.
E°Darc V - Above-average controllers for average power
The controller model E°Darc V provides the optimally tailored solution for the medium power range from 500 W up to 2 kW. This drive controller has a power feed of 230 V / 400 V and is suitable for AC drives. Via its CANopen® interface, it communicates with all controllers from the ExC range.
E°Darc M - High quality for low power
The controller model E°Darc M with a DC power feed of 10 to 60 V is available for low-power applications of 200 to 800 W. With its particularly small housing dimension, this compact drive controller for BLDC and DC motors is suited for DIN rail mounting. Also the E°Darc M model is equipped with CANopen® interface (device profile DSP402, protocol DS301), encoder interface, 1 analogue and 4 digital inputs and 1 digital output. It can be employed for PLC applications and is suited for motion control / path interpolation via CANopen®.
