Canton, MA, April 14, 2009 — Copley Controls announces the 500 W Bantam analog amplifier module for torque control of brushless and brush motors. PCB-mounted with solderless connectors, the Bantam is a highly cost-effective OEM solution for multi-axis systems.
Available in two current ratings, the compact Bantam accepts a standard ±10V current command from an external controller. Other analog control inputs are available to set current limits and adjust balance.
Digital I/O includes overtravel limits, HI/LO motor inductance range selection, amplifier status and brake control.
Digital Hall feedback enables trapezoidal commutation of brushless motors. For brush motors, Halls are not required and the motor is connected between the U and V outputs.
For easy startup, a Development Kit is available for convenient mounting and connectivity.
