Parker Servo & Stepper Drives

Parker Products are designed for easy configuration to make a complete motion system - from miniature precision for life sciences to overhead gantries for the factory floor.

Intelligent Parker Amplifier

The Intelligent Parker Amplifier (IPA) is a versatile servo drive/ controller with selectable functionality that gives the machine builder the flexibility needed to create cost-effective motion control solutions.

The IPA operates as a fully programmable stand-alone motion controller with on-board I/O and virtual axis capability, or can be integrated into a PLC or PCbased machine control solution. Software tools are included to optimize motion performance and efficiently monitor and manage the application.

  • Ethernet TCP/IP communications
  • Libraries for PC application development
  • 1.5 axis encoder input for camming, following, and gearing
  • Up to 16 multi-tasking programs
  • EtherNet/IP adapter supporting both I/O and Explicit Messaging
  • Add-On Instructions for integration with Logix controllers
