±10V Analog

±10V command signals were the standard method to control servo drives for many years. This analog signal varies continuously over the -10V to +10V range where the output of the servo drive (either current or velocity) is proportional to the input command.  A +10V command produces full positive output, -10V produces full negative output, and 0V is no output. Although still popular, commands over digital networks are the new standard.

    Advantages

    • Very simple yet provides precise control of output current or velocity
    • Universal acceptance simplifies matching controllers and servo drives from unrelated vendors

    ADVANCED Motion Controls' Capabilities

    • Fully scalable inputs to fully utilize the dynamic range of the controller
    • Up to 16-bit resolution on digital drives
