DR5 Series

The DR5 system comprises:

  • DR5A host controller; and
  • DR5V high-voltage chuck power supply with adaptive grip and release.
DR5A cabinet views

The DR5A can communicate using its

  • serial RS-232port,
  • parallel port,
  • optional rear 26-pin programmable GPIO digital and analog port.
DR5/DR6V basic module

The High Voltage DR5V module comes in two basic forms;


  • rf-isolated;
  • mounted in a grounded case,
  • mechanically identical to the DR6VI;
  • without bias or peak-to-peak voltage monitoring;

DR5V basic high voltage module,

  • mechanically identical to the DR6V, and roughly palm-sized;

The DR5 multidrop system accepts other modules in parallel with the DR5V ...

3 phase 6 output plus and minus 6kV ac waveforms

For example, the DR5P yields 4 additional high voltage channels,

  • for 6-output, 3-phase +/-6kV ac chuck drive with palm-sized electronics:

The DR5P also has a multichannel analog and digital GPIO,

  • enabling sensors and actuators at the chuck head.
DR5M servomotor drive

The DR5M is a servomotor drive, shown to the left; requiring a DR5S power supply.

All of these modules communicate over the same coaxial power line

  • through a coupling antenna to the DR5A base station,
  • which can deliver up to 75W for a usable 50W of power at the isolated chuck head.
