ACE500 Drives
CompletePower™ Plus Series

Summary Details

Technology: Brushless Drive, Digital Servo
Quadrants: 4
Nominal Current: 5A

High Voltage, Small Package ... World Class Intelligence
The line powered ACE500 is the newest addition to the ElectroCraft "Plus" series of all digital servo-amplifiers designed to provide today's OEM with maximum brushless servo performance at the lowest possible cost. The ACE500 series utilizes the latest in DSP-based drive design architecture to provide software selectable torque, velocity, and position mode (Step & Direction) operation. Sine wave commutation using encoder feedback provides smooth torque at low speeds for demanding motion control requirements found in robotic, direct drive, and linear motor applications. Sine wave commutation is also available on motors operating with only hall commutation feedback, providing smooth performance over the entire speed and torque range.

Software Type Overview
CompletePower Plus™ Setup Utility Software Description
ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Set-up Utility is a Windows-based program used for the setup, parameterization, system diagnostics and motion control management of the ElectroCraft CompletePower Plus line of digital servo drives. The ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Set-Up Utility will lead the user through a Step-by-Step Wizard to create the correct configuration information required for the user to run a particular motor with a particular drive. The result will be an "Application" file containing all of the information required to run the motor with the drive.

System Requirements
Computer ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus can be installed on any IBM™ PC compatible computer running:
• Windows 95/98
• Windows NT 4
• Windows 2000
• Windows XP

A VGA display is required. A color monitor display makes it possible to take full advantage of ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus's graphic interface. The recommended screen resolution is 1024 x 728. A resolution of 800 x 600 will also function properly.

The ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Set-up Utility uses the default printer installed on your computer. For optimal resolution, especially when printing graphs, use a high resolution (300-dpi) laser or ink jet printer.

A mouse or other pointing device is required to use ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Set-up Utility.

Serial I/O
The ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Set-up Utility can be configured to use the PC's serial port for communication between the host PC and an ElectroCraft drive. A RS-232 serial cable is required between the host PC and the drive.
