  • Optically Isolated Step and Direction, Shutdown and Zero Phase Inputs
  • Anti-Resonance Eliminates Mid-Range Instability


The Parker/Compumotor S Family of drives and drive/indexer systems are designed for reliability and offer top quality performance. The S Series is a step and direction input drive, the SX Series is a drive/indexer, and the SXF is a drive/indexer with encoder following. These products perform registration moves and are equipped to provide complex move profiling. The SX and SXF utilize the latest X-language enhancements and are easily programmed over an RS-232C interface.

Common features of these drives and drive/indexer systems include the following:
• Torques from 65 to 1,900 oz-in
• Speeds to 50 rps (3,000 rpm) continuous
• 16 user selectable motor resolutions to 50,800 steps/rev
• Three-state current control for reduced motor heating
• User-selectable current waveform for smooth operation
• Zero phase input resets phase currents to the power up positions
• Fault output for remote signalling and diagnostics
• Optically isolated step and direction, shutdown and zero phase inputs
• Anti-resonance eliminates mid-range instability
• Fully short circuit protected—phase-to-phase and phase-to-ground with no time limit
• Enclosed to prevent contaminants from entering the drive enclosure
• Power dump circuitry protects the drive from large inertial loads
• RP240 remote panel interface
• Nine motors with 10 foot motor cables. Available in 23, 34 and 42 frame sizes
• Drive status indicators; power, step input, under-voltage, over-voltage and motor fault

In addition to these common features, the SX Series has the following:
• Extended edition of X programming language
• Motion calculation delay times as low as 500 microseconds
• Conditional branching commands
• Separate acceleration and deceleration commands
• 50 user defined variables
• Registration input

The SXF Series includes the common features, all the SX features, and the following:
• Encoder following controls speed and position of a slave axis based on speed and position of master axis encoder
• Synchronizes speed and position based on registration marks
• Change ratios “on the fly,” complex motion profiling

Product Family: S-Drive, SDrive, S6-Drive, S6Drive, SX-Drive, SXDrive, SX6-Drive, SX6Drive, S8-Drive, S8Drive, SX8-Drive, SX8Drive, SXF6Drive, SXF6-Drive, SXF8Drive, SXF8-Drive, S3Drive, S3-Drive
