The Pulsar D3-400/03 is a dual-axis intelligent drive for three-phase actuators. The drive uses the programmable PMP platform and can be commanded via both EtherCAT and Ethernet.

Pulsar motor drives come with a powerful integrated motion controller and a wide range of connectivity options. This makes the Pulsar the ideal choice for many applications. Due to its internal EMI provisions, as well as integrated input / output filtering, the Pulsar can operate with a minimal number of external components. The drive can be commanded via Ethernet or by using the CiA402 compatible EtherCAT interface.

The Pulsar drives make use of the programmable Prodrive Motion Platform (PMP). PMP is a highly flexible platform which is currently used across multiple industries. The motion controller can be integrated in the most demanding systems via the powerful Motion API (C++/C#). Custom real-time code can be deployed via Simulink code generation. The PMP tooling ensures fast and effortless commissioning by offering advanced signal tracing capabilties and a fully customizable HMI interface.
