Compax3 industrial high-performance, all-digital servodrives handle current output to 10 and 15 A. Eight continuous motor-shaft power levels span 300 W to 20 kW.

The drives feature auto-tuning, an internal function generator on all units, and support for single and multiturn absolute encoders to dispense with limit switches and homing routines. All drives ship with commissioning software that includes diagnostic screens, graphical tuning utilities, an OS download tool, HTML help tools, an S-curve acceleration calculator, and a motor-configuration wizard for use with non-Parker motors.
