OES’ ICAD Series available as 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-axes modules.
Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) has introduced its ICAD Series of integrated motion controllers and drivers for 2-phase stepper motors. Available as 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-axes modules, they are designed for NEMA 8 to NEMA 42 stepper motors. These 6- by 8-inch, integrated controllers incorporate high resolution micro-stepping drivers for precise positioning. Other features include home and limit switches per axis, joystick interface, TTL/CMOS inputs and outputs, quadrature encoder feedback, USB and optional Ethernet interfaces permits each module to be customized for specific applications. The ICAD series is powered from a single power supply up to +48 VDC. The high voltage power supply allows for high speed operation.
