IONI is a digital motor drive designed for driving AC/BLDC and DC servo motors and steppers. IONI allows controlling motors in all three operating modes: position control, velocity control and torque control (torque mode only with servo motors). Applications of such control methods include
Commands to IONI drive can be delivered in many formats and from many sources, such as PC, PLC, microcontroller (i.e. Arduino, MBED and OEM boards) or embedded computers like Raspberry Pi. IONI understands several forms of setpoint commands:
As motor is not included, make sure that you have, or obtain a motor that is compatible with IONI.

Stepping motor requirements:
Argons are built to last – and we have faith in their longevity. If your Argon break within 24 months of use, we will simply repair or replace them free of charge (details).
Hardware of Argon has been designed from ground up without any historical payload. The main character of the construction is the unique dual CPU architecture where CPUs are connected together with single isolated link. This not only costs less but also yields unforeseen flexibility and reliability. The I/O side ARM CPU comes with open source firmware allowing implementing unlimited stand-alone user programs and functions directly inside the drive.
