The Zenith DPs-170 is a dual-axis rack module piezo stack drive with internally generated +135/-35VDC powered from 48VDC. The drive is commanded via EtherCAT with a CiA402 compatible interface. This drive is part of our Multi Axes Motion Control Rack concept and our Prodrive Motion Platform (PMP). The external connectivity to motors and sensors is fully customizable to the customer needs. 

Digital control

CST & CSTA modes CiA402 interface 
PP & CSP modes Optional co-processor
