Performance Motion Devices Inc. (PMD) will showcase a new ultra-compact intelligent motion control amplifier. In addition to exhibiting its motion control ICs, modules, and boards, PMD will be announcing the launch of its new family of intelligent motion control amplifiers. ION/CME N-Series Digital Drives are compact, PCB-mountable intelligent drives that provide high-performance motion control, network connectivity (Ethernet, CAN, serial, and SPI), and amplification. They feature high power density (up to 1000 W) in a patented ultra-rugged form factor. N-Series IONs drive Brushless DC, DC Brush, and step motors, and perform profile generation, servo compensation, stall detection, field-oriented control (FOC), electronic camming, and many other motion control functions. The N-Series ION drives have an all-in-one design approach that allows the creation of fully custom multi-axis motion control boards in weeks, rather than months or even years, the company reported.
Medical device engineering and manufacturing teams leverage Pipeline to develop turnkey equipment, custom fixtures, and automated machines to characterize, inspect, assemble, manufacture, and perform verification testing on their devices. Pipeline’s semi-custom nested device holders offer a convenient off-the-shelf solution for R&D and manufacturing teams to hold their devices in fully constrained, zero-play, unambiguous locations, facilitating accurate and repeatable process operations such as testing, inspection, and assembly. Nested device holders cradle devices’ contours perfectly and are available in a variety of sizes to accommodate specific devices and can be customized with mounting hole patterns and tool-free fasteners to match specific needs. 3D printed with a special carbon fiber material, Pipeline’s device holders are nearly as strong as Al and can be made in days instead of weeks for a fraction of the cost, the company reported.
