DCS-3010 is a microcontroller based PWM drive for permanent magnet DC (PMDC) motors with supply voltage up to 115 VDC (optionally up to 180 VDC for DCS-3010-HV drive) and current up to 30 A. Drive is based on a 16-bit microcontroller with implemented PID control algorithm.

As the feedback of DC motor position an incremental encoder with phase-shifted square signal is used. Encoder interface enables 1x, 2x and 4x incremental encoder resolution.

Adjustment of all DC servo drive DCS-3010(-HV) parameters is performed by using the free configuration software ServoTune3. ServoTune3 software has implemented PID auto tune algorithm.

DC servo drive for driving DC motors with high supply voltage DCS-3010-HV is supported by ServoTune3 versions V3.10 and later.

The input control interface enables control via opto-isolated lines in following modes:

  • Encoder follower in 1x, 2x and 4x decoding,

as well as via analog input within the range 0–5 V with and without feedback (there is the connector on the drive for connecting an external potentiometer).

Build-in soft start enables DC motor 1s after powering on decreasing electric shock on start.

There is an opto-isolated output on drive named Track Error which is activated if adjusted value of tracking error offset is exceeded. That output can be used for activation of external circuit for DC motor emergency stop.

Drive has over-voltage and over-temperature protection.

If electric current is higher, drive can be placed on additional heat sink.

For supply voltages over 70 VDC it is recommended to use Motor brake circuit MB-2.

pdfDCS-3010(-HV) User's manual

When working with servo drive DCS-3010(-HV) there are dangers and risks that can lead to equipment damage, also injuries of people present near-by. For the installation procedure of servo drive DCS-3010(-HV) it is required to have a high level of knowledge in the fields of electronics, computer technology and mechanics. Also it is required to obey safety measures for working with high voltages and mechanical dangers caused by operation of powerful, heavy machines.
Supply voltages over 50 VDC can be danger of death.
Drive should not be used in places where, in case of failure, people safety is in danger, financial losses are big, or there exist other losses. During drive operation should be used all required precautious.
Does not exclude the possibility that this document contains errors. In addition the manufacturer assumes no responsibility for any damage caused by the use of this drive, which has occurred as a result of compliance or non-compliance with this instruction manual.
