PI Releases High Power Piezo Amplifier to Drive Adaptive Structures, Fast Tool Servos, Vibration Cancellation Systems – Model E-482

July 31, 2013

The E-482 power amplifier is useful for a multitude of fast actuation and switching applications such as adaptive structures and mechanisms, precision tool servos, fatigue testing, quality control purposes or highly dynamic control of piezo driven valves in test stands.

Auburn, MA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013

Piezo technology market leader PI (Physik Instrumente) presents the E-482, a new high-power amplifier providing 6 kW peak power with an energy saving power recovery design.

The E-482 is useful for a multitude of fast actuation and switching applications such as adaptive structures and mechanisms, precision tool servos, fatigue testing, quality control purposes or highly dynamic control of piezo driven valves in test stands.

The E-482 comes a 19-inch rack-mount chassis and can be upgraded to a full closed-loop system by means of the E-509 servo-control module. The piezo driver is designed for the operation of large, high-capacitance piezo actuators. The class D switching amplifier controls the piezo output voltage by modulating the pulse width of the control signal. When the piezo actuator is discharged, a patented energy recovery circuitry stores the returning energy in a capacitor and makes it reusable for the next charging cycle. Despite its very sink/source current of 6A (peak, 2A avg.) and a voltage swing of up to 1050V (unipolar and bipolar) this amplifier achieves very high efficiency, accounting to energy savings up to up to 80% compared with traditional piezo drivers. Another benefit is significantly reduced heat dissipation.

Computer Control

In addition to a closed-loop upgrade, a computer interface module with wave generator and data recorder is also available.
