igus’ D3 and D1 dryve control systems ensure a speedy start-up of linear and rotational systems.
igus released its that start-up the company’s motorized drylin E drive axes. The D3 dryve controls simple linear or rotations axes with DC motors without software or a PC. Users connect the D3 dryve to a 24V power supply and set the operating mode, end-position switch-off, and the motor current via DiP switches. The speed can be adjusted with an integrated rotary controller. Designed for more complex travels, the D1 can control stepper, DC motors of EC/BLDC motors. Its user interface is accessed via a web browser and IP address. The “motor” menu item is used to load all settings, either for igus moters or other motor suppliers. User can also use the menu to enter the settings for the linear or rotational axis as well as to set the route and feed rate. Networking with a higher-level control unit such as a PLC is also possible via Ethernet or CANOpen.
