The Parker Digiplan PDS series of single-axis packaged ministep drives consists of the PDS13 and PDS15, with peak current ratings of 3A and 5A respectively. A further 5A version, known as the PDS15-D is also available with a built-in regenerative dump circuit. PDS series drive are high-performance, MOSFET, chopper-regulated stepper drives designed for optimum performance in low and medium power applications. A recirculating chopper regulator improves operating efficiency, minimizes power consumption, and reduces motor and drive heating. They are powered Direct On-Line (DOL) from mains supplies of 110V to 240V (nominal) AC. An internal switch mode power supply is used, incorporating Power Factor Correction (PFC) to minimise distortion of the AC supply.

The drives are suitable for use with hybrid and permanent magnet stepping motors having 4, 6, or 8 leads. The drives can be used as stand alone units with separate control inputs and motor connection/power inputs. An on-board clock can be used to control drive motion or an external step direction source can be used. The step, direction and shutdown differential inputs are fully opto isolated for maximum noise immunity.

What is the difference between the PDS13/PDS15 and the type-2 PDS13-2/PDS15-2?
The type-2 series of drives have improved input noise immunity compared with the PDS13 and PDS15/PDS15-D series.
