Application Guide...

This guide is designed to assist the customer with the integration of Glentek's Amplifiers and Motors to their systems, utilizing high response micro stepping servos instead of low resolution stepper motors. The difference between stepper motors and servo motors with high resolution encoders will be pointed out and examples will be given. Also an overview of Glentek servo motors and amplifiers will be provided. This guide will answer many questions that are asked when trying to retrofit an older machine with Position Loop stepper servos. The guide also explains how to choose the correct servo motor replacement for a stepper motor. The guide describes how to set up the Glentek Position Loop Stepper servo amplifier and connect it to the Sound Logic breakout board. Also, we have included a brushless vs. brush type comparison for those of you that are currently using brush type motor in your servo system. For additional information such as tuning the Glentek servo amplifier in pulse follower mode, go to the Glentek website at www.Glentek.com, and open the installation and operation manual (24Aug07) for Omega series amplifiers under "Support > Manual". To connect to Sound Logic Breakout board,...
