Medical Imaging Platform
A custom motion solution was designed for GE Healthcare’s Imaging platform.
To meet today’s medical standards of high and dynamic performance at a lower total cost of ownership, STXI has recently developed a new Integrated Closed Loop Stepper Motor for GE Healthcare called SCM – Stepper Controller and Motor.
Below block diagram demonstrates the special features that were integrated into the SCM: only two connectors and a PE at the top for simple cable plug-in, redundancy SPI communication channel for status and recovery, reading redundancy feedback AqB, digital input, and more.
This new motion solution comes in addition to our MCM (Motion Control Module), a DC servo drive widely used in GE’s patient tables and nuclear detectors, and the HPM AC Servo Drive used in various heavy load rotation axes.
