The 6410 drive requires STEP and DIRECTION inputs. Select an
indexer that provides, as a minimum, these commands. A
compatible indexer will provide the capability to drive the input
circuits shown in Section 2.5.3. For most applications that operate
at speeds above 300 rpm, an indexer that can ramp the step
frequency is required.
The 6410 is designed for use with Pacific Scientific’s line of
hybrid stepper motors or most other 2 phase stepper motors. The
drive works with either the standard line or the enhanced high
performance line of stepper motors. The motor winding current
rating must be compatible with the output current of the drive
Refer to the Torque/Speed Curves in the Pacific Scientific
“Motion Control Solutions Catalog” or contact your local Pacific
Scientific distributor for sizing and motor compatibility assistance.
A single power supply is required to operate the 6410 unit.
Note: In multi-axis applications, it is preferable to run each
power connection from supply to drive and not daisy-chain the
The power supply can vary from +24 to 75 Volts maximum at a
maximum current of 5 amps. It does not have to be a regulated
Note: The supply voltage cannot exceed 75 volts.
Important information about the power supply is outlined in
Section 2.5.2 and Appendix C. Read these sections carefully
before applying power to the drive.
