HiCON Integra with Geckodrive G320X's
« on: January 03, 2016, 04:34:34 PM »
Hello,

Has anyone used the HiCON Integra with G320X's before?  I am setting up a system that utilizes servo's and will be driving them with G320X's.  I was going through the documentation and reviewing the hardware, but was not completely clear if the HiCON Integra would be a good solution for this?  I will be adding encoders to the servos for feedback which I will split for use in a laser scanning system.

Just curious if anyone has used the Integra with a similar setup?  Thanks.

hi mrcole,

Looks like these drives can control DC servo motor with encoder feedback.  From integra, all you would need is to tie in the step and direction signals.  There is also RESERR signal on G320 that indicates drive error condition, you can tie that to one of the digital inputs on integra as DriveError signal, to disarm the system if triggered.
