Axis Position Control PS 10

Share this on social media:

OWIS has released its single-axis position control PS 10, which continues the range of the position controls PS 90 and PS 30.

This beginner model provides a cost-effective solution for industry and research. It can control either two-phase step motors in microstep mode with phase current 2.5A or DC servo motors up to 5A.

To operate several PS 10 units together, the control unit can also be equipped with CANbus. Thus, a multipoint connection up to 32 nodes with high transfer rate is possible. Due to the shared programming language, a switch between the different controls as well an extension for higher performance is anytime possible.

Using the SDK for LabView, C and C++, the control can easily integrated in an existing system. Easy data interchange with laptop or PC is possible via the USB interface. Different in- and outputs are implemented: TTL and analogue inputs as well as TTL, SPS and PWM outputs.

The software tool OWISoft is part of the delivery. Thus, the PS 10 can be configured and operated comfortably. The parameters for OWIS positioning units are stored in the OWISoft database and can be loaded for the operation. Third-party motors can also be integrated and actuated.
