Compact Drive: Powerful miniature motor drive

Technosoft introduced the IBL2401 compact intelligent minidrive based on the company’s MotionChip DSP Control Technology. The company says the drive measures only 58 x 44 x 16 mm and weighs just 60 grams while incorporating motion controller, drive and PLC functionalities. It controls brushless, step, dc or linear motors up to 25 W.

Technosoft introduced the IBL2401 compact intelligent minidrive based on the company’s MotionChip DSP Control Technology. The company says the drive measures only 58 x 44 x 16 mm and weighs just 60 grams while incorporating motion controller, drive and PLC functionalities. It controls brushless, step, dc or linear motors up to 25 W (24 V, 1 A).
The company says engineers can program motion from a CANopen master via a PC/PLC using the appropriate motion library, or directly at drive level, using the built-in motion controller and the company’s EasyMotion Studio platform. Its embedded motion controller uses the same high-level motion language for all motor versions, making their technology differences transparent to the user.
Motion modes as contouring, profiling, gearing, electronic camming, PVT are easily executed in stand-alone or multi-axis operations. The unit has several sensors, including incremental encoders, as well as digital and linear Hall-effect sensors. Communication can be done over CANopen, CAN, RS-232 networks, or Ethernet through an external adapter.
