These combined supply/axis modules can be used as a stand-alone compact drive or expanded with any MDD-2000 axis modules to form a multi-axis system. This solution is particularly beneficial for applications where continuous power is not always available on all three axes, such as 3- or 6-axis robots. A backplane was deliberately omitted from the design, which eliminates the need for optional axes.
In expansion stages with options, additional axes can be added depending on the customer's requirements - and all this via plug-and-play. The overload factor can reach up to 300 percent. Short controller cycle times of 62.5 µs give the DIAS Drives MDD 2000 excellent servo performance.
