IONICUBE is a 1-4 axis motherboard for IONI Servo Drives. IONICUBE provide four slots for IONI drives as well as terminals and connectors for motor power, feedback devices, I/O and SimpleMotion V2.

IONICUBE has been designed multiaxis robotic systems such as CNC machines in mind. On-board features include:

  • Carry up to 4 ION drives
  • On-board regenerative braking resistor
  • Each axis can have mechanical end switches and homing switch
  • Motor holding brake drivers for each axis
  • The first 26 pin ribbon cable connector is laid out so that it’s directly connectible to traditional CNC controllers (parallel port, SmoothStepper etc).
  • The second 26 pin connector has extra I/O for drives and analog setpoint inputs for custom applications
  • No separate break-out-boards needed
  • Charge-pump input for safety
  • E-stop switch input (safe torque off)
  • PWM to 0-10V converter for VFD spindle
  • Two relay drivers
  • ARGON Servo Drive compatible encoder connector pin-out
