SD Series Servo Drives

Up to 16 SD series drives can be interfaced to an SMLC using ServoWire protocol for motion control networking. Fourteen models offer continuous output currents from 2.5 to 60 amps RMS/phase at 115, 230 or 460 VAC, and an all-digital design eliminates all manual drive setup including potentiometers and jumpers.

Key Features

  • IEEE 1394b ServoWire (FireWire) digital network with locking connectors
  • Drive Power Inputs of 115, 230 or 460 VAC
  • Small footprint
  • 2 Digit status display
  • Field Oriented Control (FOC)
  • Space Vector Modulation (SVPWM)
  • UL/CE approvals
  • ServoWire drive network interface
  • Flexible drive I/O
  • Multiple feedback options
  • Quadrature and Serial Encoders as well as Hall feedback

ServoWire SD drives offer high-performance motion control using all-digital servo drives connected via an open standard FireWire network. Two series of drives offer solutions with power from 600 to 24,000 watts, and continuous current output from 2.5 to 60 amps RMS/phase.

ServoWire SD drives provide high-performance servo operation using digital networking technology based on IEEE 1394b (FireWire). This network not only provides high speed but also ease of use through cost-effective, industry-standard cabling. Each ServoWire drive supports a variety of high-performance servo motors. Consult us for OEM applications of user-supplied brushless rotary or linear motors—as well as DC brush-type and voice-coil motors. All ServoWire drives use reliable IGBT-based intelligent power modules and provide a cost-effective solution for many motion control applications.

ServoWire drives operate on DC, 115, 230 or 460 VAC input power, and provide both output short circuit and overvoltage protection. The all-digital design eliminates the troublesome analogue interface between PC and drive systems, replacing it with a high-speed network based on the IEEE 1394b standard.
