Sand

A line of configurable, economical, compact and smart drives
that can be easily adapted to specific customer needs.

All drives and power systems include and are managed by GFTuner software tools.
Implementation of GFT-Servo allows advanced and complex control schemes, including ‘Gain Scheduling’ for instant handling of changing system dynamics, and Automatic Transfer Function identification, including uncertainty.
The SW tool includes also built in integration and debugging functions.

Main features

1
Fast Communication between control processors, allowing dependent axes control (gantry, coupled hinges of robot manipulator, etc.)
2
Compact form factor and Low weight
3
High performance and reliability
