The Panther LD is a high performance, low cost microstepping driver with integral power supply that incorporates advanced surface mount and ASIC technology. The Panther LD is small, easy to interface and use, yet powerful enough to handle the most demanding applications.
The heart of the Panther LD is our IM483 miniature OEM microstepping driver which utilizes our highly integrated IM2000 microstepping controller IC.
Incorporated into the Panther LD driver are proprietary circuits that minimize ripple current while maintaining a 20 kHz chopping rate. This prevents additional motor heating that is common with drivers requiring higher chopping rates. Now low inductance stepper motors can be used to improve high speed performance and system efficiency.
The Panther LD allows you to change the number of microsteps per step at anytime. There is no need to reset the driver. Built into the driver are 14 different resolutions in both binary and decimal, allowing the user to rapidly move long distances, yet precisely position the motor at the end of travel without the expense of high performance controllers.
