Incorporated into the PANTHER

HD driv er are proprietary circuits

that minimize rip ple current while

maintaining a 20 kHz chopping

rate. This prevents ad di tion al mo-

tor heat ing that is common with

driv ers re quir ing higher chopping

rates. Now low inductance stepper

motors can be used to improve high

speed per for mance and system

ef fi cien cy.

The PANTHER HD allows you to

change the number of microsteps

per step at any time. There is no

need to reset the driver. Built into

the driver are 14 different res o lu -

tions in both binary and decimal, al-

lowing the user to rapidly move long

distances, yet precisely po si tion the

motor at the end of travel without

the ex pense of high per for mance


For many low and medium power

applications, the PANTHER HD pro-

vides a low cost, compact solution

along with in no va tive features found

only in IMS drivers.


The PANTHER HD is a high per for -

mance, low cost microstepping driv-

er with in te gral power supply that in-

cor po rates ad vanced sur face mount

and ASIC tech nol o gy. The PANTHER

HD is small, easy to in ter face and

use, yet powerful enough to handle

the most de mand ing applications.

The heart of the PANTHER HD is

our IM1007 OEM microstepping

driv er which utilizes our highly in-

te grat ed IM2000 microstepping

con trol ler IC.
