The Motion Control Association (MCA) will host a webinar at 11:00 a.m. Eastern on March 4, 2014 on "Innovations in PWM Drive Technology for Nanometer Level Motion Control Applications." Traditionally, manufacturers of equipment with demanding motion control requirements such as front end semiconductor inspection, FPD metrology, biomedical scanning, and more, have often been required to use linear servo drives to meet aggressive motion stage performance requirements, such as nanometer level standstill jitter and finely controlled velocity. Unfortunately, linear drives inherently suffer from inferior efficiency, and therefore higher costs and larger footprints, when compared to their PWM counterparts. The revolutionary new NanoPWM line of PWM drives from ACS Motion Control employ innovative new design techniques and control algorithms that can exceed the motion performance of linear drives, while maintaining the efficiency and elegance of digital PWM drives. Enabling technologies, control architectures, and real world examples will be discussed.
