The DS series offers customer choices that include customer selectable motor windings, various feedback devices including resolvers, encoders or simply hall-effect sensors. Customers can select the encoder resolution and determine final product cost and configuration by limiting resolution in applications which do not require 3 arc-sec repeatability and thus reducing cost of the Direct Drive System. Customers also can select motor windings which enables designers to select a low-cost DC servo controller/amplifier packages which further reduce system costs. Engineers can determine that a 220-440 VAC servo amplifier is required for higher speed and current. In either case, Prime Drives offers options for customers to use meet the unique requirements of their application.
