Low Cost PCB Mountable Piezo Driver for OEMs Integrates High Voltage Power Supply

(Nanowerk News) Piezo motion technology market leader PI (Physik Instrumente) introduces a new low-cost piezo driver designed for OEM integration.
E-836.03 piezo drive
High Performance for Dynamic Motion Systems
Despite its compact size, the new E-836.03 piezo driver provides for the dynamic operation of low-voltage multilayer piezo actuators and piezo positioning systems.
The new module can source and sink peak currents to 100mA and provides an output voltage range of -30 to 130V. Running on only 24 volts, the module also integrates the high-voltage supply for the piezo driver as well as the other required supply voltages.
As with all PI piezo drivers, amplifiers and controllers, the compact unit is short-circuit-proof and equipped with full over current and over temperature protection.
