Mini drive

The co. presents the new IBL2401, a compact, intelligent mini drive based on the MotionChip™ DSP control technology. The mini drive embeds a motion controller and drive and PLC functionalities in the same compact unit and controls brushless, stepper, DC or linear motors up to 25 W. Motion programming can be done 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 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 such as contouring, profiling, gearing, electronic camming and PVT can be executed in standalone or multi-axis operations. The company also equips the mini drive with several sensors, such as incremental encoders and digital and linear halls. Communication can be done over CANopen, CAN, RS-232 networks, or Ethernet through an external adapter. INL2401 weighs 60 g and measures 58 x 44 x 16 mm.
