DC Power Supply & AC Power Cable

  • 24-75VDC is required for ClearPath bus power. Teknic typically recommends 75VDC for maximum motor power.
  • ClearPath can run from supplies up to 90VDC, but will protectively shutdown at 94VDC, so a 75VDC supply gives you a little more design margin.
  • The Teknic IPC-3 and IPC-5 power supplies are designed specifically for the unique requirements of servo control- they smoothly handle regenerated energy and large peak loads.
  • One IPC power supply can typically power 2-6 ClearPath motors (application dependent - see FAQs and/or Accessories video).

DC Power Cable

  • This cable connects the DC power supply (or power hub) to the ClearPath motor.
  • The DC Power cable requires a 4-pin molex connector on the ClearPath end and a 2-pin Sabre connector on the DC power end (if using Teknic IPC or power hub).
  • The cable can be purchased from Teknic or can be easily made with the proper materials and crimp tools.

Length: 16.775 m (55 ft)

Cable used to supply bus power from a DC power supply to a ClearPath motor. It has ClearPath power connectors on both ends, so it is designed to be be cut to make two shorter cables or one long cable, with flying leads at one end. (Note: this is only a 2-wire cable, so it is not suitable for use as the analog input cable on an ASU-FR510.)

USB Setup Cable

  • The USB cable connects the ClearPath motor to a Windows PC for initial setup using the ClearPath MSP (Motor Setup Program) software.
  • After initial setup, the cable is disconnected for application operation (but can also be used for diagnostic purposes).
  • The connectors are USB A to micro-B.
  • This cable can be purchased from Teknic or third parties. If you use a third-party cable, make sure to use a “fully rated” cable (shielded and designed for high-speed data communication).

Length: 3.05 meters (10 ft)

Cable used to connect a DC-input ClearPath-MC or -SD motor to a Windows PC in order to configure the motor using the ClearPath MSP software. Once configured, the motor is disconnected from the PC, so you only need one of these cables no matter how many ClearPath motors you buy. This cable can also be used to connect to the rear diagnostic port of a ClearPath-SC motor.)

4-axis Power Hub & Cables (Optional)

  • This 4-axis power hub distributes DC bus power to 1-4 ClearPath motors.
  • The hub requires 24VDC (in addition to motor bus power).
  • The power hub also provides logic power backup. If bus power is removed (e.g., upon an E-stop), ClearPath will still communicate and monitor its position. So, upon restoring bus power, ClearPath can automatically return to its correct commanded position.

DC Power Distribution Hub

DC Power Distribution Hub
Part Number: POWER4-HUB
Input: Bus Power: 24-75 volts (nominal);
Logic Power: 15-30 volts
Output: Distributes the applied input voltages
Connectors: Bus: 2-pin Sabre; Logic: 2-pin Molex MiniFit Jr.
Dimensions, in (mm): 3.06 x 4.12 (77.7 x 104.7)
Certifications: UL, CE (pending)

Distributes DC bus power to up to four ClearPath motors. Requires 24 volt power to operate (in addition to bus power). The Power Hub also acts as logic power backup for the motors, i.e., the motors will still retain encoder position even with bus power removed (for safety during an E-stop, for example). Upon restoration of bus power, the motors will automatically return to their previous positions, if desired.
