The PMDX-137 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
- Dump circuit provides rapid power off discharge of storage capacitors (under 5 seconds) for additional user safety
- Provides connection for external "dump" resistor when needed for
servo systems with significant amounts of returned energy from decelerating
- Has multiple DC output terminals for easier wiring of multiple wires to
- 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, 133, and 133 motherboards 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
- The PMDX-137 is a functional replacement for the obsolete PMDX-135. It is in
a more compact mechanical form and will not directly mount to the same holes
as a PMDX-135.
