Home > Press > The new digital piezo controller d-Drive pro: Highest resolution and simultanous regulation of 3 axes

Abstract:
piezosystem jena presents the d-Drive pro, the latest generation of digital control electronics for piezo actuators. These piezoelectric ceramic based actuating systems and piezo stages are mainly used for micro and nano positioning for a highly accurate movement of optical devices and optical components. The new piezo controller of piezosystem jena provides 24 bit resolution and simultaneous regulation of 3 axes with an internal data transfer rate of 50 kHz.

The new digital piezo controller d-Drive pro: Highest resolution and simultanous regulation of 3 axes

Jena, Germany | Posted on June 10th, 2014

The d-Drive pro has a compatible instruction set to that of the existing d-DriveŽ series. As with the standard d-DriveŽ all digital piezo actuators can be controlled via PC. The d-Drive pro also shares the same great features including: freely programmable frequency generator, adjustable slew-rate, as well as notch and low pass filters. The d-Drive pro also allows for the exchanging of actuators in the field through Automatic Sensor Identification (ASI) and Automatic Sensor Calibration (ASC). The new integrated Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) offers the users of the d-Drive pro entirely new possibilities with the highest flexibility.

Special highlights include the high 24 bit resolution and simultaneous control of up to 3 axes. The interfaces available to the user are RS232, USB and Ethernet as well as an analog modulation input and monitor output.

New functions like curve tracking or temperature monitoring complete the d-Drive pro and enable new applications for daily use. The output current of a single axis is adjustable up to 300 mA.

We will be happy to help you to find a solution for your application.
