PD-170-57-E is obsolete and not recommended for new designs.


The PD-170-57-E is a full mechatronic solution including a 57mm brushless DC motor. It combines a convenient servo controller electronic (TMCM-170) and an optical encoder with a range of different motor types. The PD-170-57-E offers two motor torque options and can be controlled via RS232, RS485 and/or CAN interface. The power supply is connected via screw connectors and the interface and the multi-purpose I/Os can be connected via high density JST connectors. This PANdrive combines the high resolution commonly known from stepper motors with the high dynamic, high velocity and high reliability of a BLDC drive. It integrates a position regulator and a ramp generator. The integrated ramp generator provides for parameterized smooth positioning and supports an external switch as an absolute position reference.
