Drive controllers

High-efficiency drive controllers with safety technology

Whether for high-performance systems, highly efficient multi-axis applications or compact modules – the 6th generation from STOBER always has the right drive controller on hand.

Benefit from three series that can be combined with each other: SC6 for compact systems, the slim, dynamic SI6 for bayed systems, and the flexible all-rounder SD6.

BENEFITS
Customized for any drive task

Every drive solution has its own unique character. And we have the matching drive controllers!
Whether drive-based or control-based – we have universal and flexible solutions for any kind of motion control.

The shortest possible recovery times from fast set value changes and load jumps are the reason why our drives have such high dynamics.
There is also an option of connecting the drive controllers in a DC link for multi-axis applications, which improves the energy footprint of the entire system.

And speaking of energy, all STOBER drive controllers comply with energy efficiency class IE2 in accordance with EN 61800-9-2.


SC6: The innovative solution for a wide range of system designs

The youngest in the series: The stand-alone SC6 drive controller. Due to its integrated power supply and slim design, it enables cost-effective application concepts.

The SC6 series is ideal for combination with the innovative STOBER Lean motor – for example, for energy-efficient transport systems. Another benefit is that the Lean motor and SC6 run completely without an encoder!


SI6: The slim one for multi-axis drive systems

The most striking feature is its extremely compact design! With a width of only 45 mm, the SI6 requires extremely little space in the control cabinet.

Each SI6 is connected to a central PS6 supply module. Additional fuses and cabling for each individual axis are not required. This reduces the space and costs.

The STOBER SI6 drive controller also offers a lot for acceleration: Together with an EZ series synchronous servo motor, it can go from 0 to 3000 rpm in 10 ms.


SD6: The high-performer for customized solutions

Controlling servo axes precisely and quickly is its game. Due to its high computing power, the SD6 recalculates the position, speed and torque control of the servo axes every 62.5 μs. This enables extraordinarily high dynamics and precision for the drives with very short recovery times and also fast reactions to set value changes and load jumps.
