With the Starter kit you can easily get started with Piezo LEGS®. With the free PiezoMotor DriveLab application, you can run the motor in closed loop and with controlled position from a built-in encoder.
The Starter kit is delivered with a PMD401 controller and a linear or rotary motor (LL06, LT20, LT40, LR17 or LR23). It’s a fully featured miniature connector board for open loop and closed loop operation that can be easily stacked to form a multi-axis controller system.
It can be connected to the customer’s mainboard for integration in OEM applications. The PMD401 provides a resolution of up to 8192 microsteps, which means a positioning resolution in the sub-nanometer range. Host communication is done via 2-wire RS485 through ASCII commands.
The Starter kit is delivered with power supply for all regions and a USB (RS85) connection to a Windows computer running DriveLab. Download Piezo DriveLab from the PiezoMotor official website. Note that each motor will have a specific maximum speed and step length, depending on the controller.
When ordering a Starter Kit make sure to order the following:
