1-4 Axis Motor Controller

Drive is an ‘all-in-one’ scanner controller, capable of manipulating one to four motorised axes simultaneously in a precisely controlled and coordinated manner.

Using Linear Amplifiers, rather than noisy pulse width modulation, Drive can produce 150W of motor power, with minimal interference to UT, TOFD, PA and EC signals, enhancing inspection quality and reducing inspection time.

Equipped with a powerful Windows 10 integrated touchscreen PC for control, Drive has built-in automated scan plans which are fully customisable. A flexible GPIO interface permits synchronised control over other equipment such as pneumatics, sensors and cameras.

Drive has a familiar “umbilical” connector that makes it simple to connect to existing scanning equipment and has the added advantage of remote control via Ethernet, so can remain in-situ on sensitive inspection sites without an on-site inspection engineer.

Whilst Drive performs best with Phoenix ISL scanning solutions, it provides general purpose and customisable control software to work with any scanner up to 4-axes of movement.
