The PMDX-135 is a power preparation module for use with CNC motor drivers

  • Offered in 80 volt and 50 volt versions
  • Supplies up to 20 Amperes of filtered, unregulated DC when connected to a suitable input transformer
  • Includes electronic load "DUMP" to help prevent overvoltage when motors produce "back EMF" during rapid deceleration
  • Provides rapid power off discharge of storage capacitors (under 5 seconds) for additional user safety
  • Utilizes multiple filter capacitors in order to better handle ripple current heating effects
  • Utilizes heavy duty bridge rectifier mounted to a large heatsink
  • Indicators furnished for "DC Output ON" and back EMF "DUMP"
  • Ideal power source for our PMDX-132 Breakout/Motherboard Combo for Geckodrive stepper motor drivers
  • Can be used to power all models of Geckodrive stepper and servo motor drivers and also drivers from many other vendors
  • Has enough power capability to run 4 Geckodrive stepper motor drivers at full power
