Argon is a digital servo drive designed for driving AC/BLDC and DC servo motors in various operating modes.


State of the Art

  • High dynamic range torque control
  • Wide range motor support, from DC, BLDC, AC and Linear, from 50 W to 1500 W
  • Sophisticated dead-time distortion elimination
  • Flexible feedback device port supporting incremental, serial and analog encoders and resolvers ¹
  • Dual CPU architecture with dedicated open source ARM CPU for user functionality
  • High functional density and cost efficiency: all features included in the standard model
  • 3-level PWM output with reduced motor heating


Protections & Ruggedness

  • 3-way Safe torque off with motor braking
  • Prevent machine damage via I²t (motor temperature modeling), blocked motion and tracking error detection
  • Industry leading ruggedness: over current, short circuit, over voltage, under voltage and over temperature protections, internally fused, data/communication error detection
  • Internal AC inrush current limiter and surge protection
  • High tolerance for fluctuations in AC supply voltage
  • Warranty 24 months

¹) Check up-to-date feedback device support from firmware changelogs.
