PCM4806E & PCM4826E Stepper Motor Drives

Haydon Kerk Stepper Motor Programmable Drive PCM4806-PCS4826
Watch this video to learn more about the IDEA Drive technology!
The PCM4806E and PCM4826E IDEATM Drive Stepper Motor Controllers use USB for communication and are available in two current ratings. In addition to the stand-alone models, drives are available integrated on motor and linear actuator assemblies.

Features :
  • USB Communication protocol
  • Stand-alone drive unit or integrated directly onto a linear actuator
  • Programming done through Graphic User Interface (GUI)
  • Automatic population of motor and drive parameters
  • Programmable Speed / Current / Accel-Decel / Current Boost / Interrupts / I/O
  • Encoder Input / Stall Detection with Compensation / Position Verification
  • Movement Profile Plotter
  • Interactive Program Debug Feature
  • Maximum current ratings of 0.6 Arms or 2.6 Arms
