IMS IM483I Performance Microstepping Stepper Motor Driver with Indexer
IMS IM483I High Performance Microstepping Driver with Indexer
Tested - some rust on the black heatsinks visible
Incorporated into the IM483I & IE drivers are proprietary circuits that minimize ripple current while maintaining a 20 kHz chopping rate. This prevents additional motor heating that is common with drivers requiring higher chopping rates. Now low inductance stepper motors can be used to improve high speed performance and system efficiency.
The built-in indexer on the IM483I & IE allows the user, via a serial link, to pro gram parameters such as acceleration/deceleration ramps, velocity, position, resolution and drive current to form simple or complex motions.
Programs can be executed by sending single commands, or can be stored in the on-board nonvolatile memory which can then be executed on power-up or by discrete user inputs.
