MRMC introduces the new MicroDriver

Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC) has announced the release of the MicroDriver, a miniature PWM Brushed DC motor amplifier, designed specifically to dramatically reduce equipment size and cost.
The MicroDriver measures just 60mm x 100mm x 25mm, yet can deliver 15 Amps peak and 10 Amps nominal with no cooling or heat-sinking required.
This keeps it compact and lightweight, at only 60 grams. It is a direct plug-in replacement of some full size Eurocard amplifiers, but with only 30% of the mechanical footprint.
The MicroDriver is suitable for a range of low to high power motor applications and pseudo-torque mode applications. Using high-tech modern integrated circuits, the drive is designed to provide four-quadrant control for full motion control and up to 1kW of peak power.
Peak and nominal current settings are controlled using simple resistor links. The drive also features TTL and 24V compatible enable inputs, +10V/-10V analogue PWM control, diagnostic indicators and single supply operation, from 20-80V.
An even smaller version is also available which gives another 35% saving of space when running from 35V.
