Viper Step2Linear Step & Direction to Analog Servo Adapters

Postby Marty_Escarcega » Sat Mar 11, 2017 5:17 pm

These are from Larken.

What they allow you to do, is take servo motors with an encoder that are driven by analog servo amplifiers. That is, they take +/- 0-10VDC signal to run them. You input step and direction from any motion controller like Mach, Flashcut or any other system that can output step and direction, along with the servo motor encoder input signal via the DB-9 connector to the Step2Linear adapter. This adapter effectively creates a closed loop motion control system between it, the servo amplifier and the encoder on the servo motor.

I bought them for a project, mounted them, then changed direction. These have never been powered up. I am selling the four of them for almost half of new. $210 and I will pickup USPS First Class Priority Shipping in the US. This also includes the programming cable. You download Vipertune which is the servo tuning software from Viperservo.com

Do these have any advantage over the G203 Gecko servomechanism drives?

Rex, they aren't servo drives.
They take step and direction signals along with an encoder signal and drive analog servo amplifiers.
Good if you have a machine with good DC brush servos and amplifiers that take +/- 0-10VDC signal to drive them.
