AC Servo Amplifiers 60 Hz & 400 HZ

Solid-state servo electronics designed and built by PCD offer the design engineer a complete line of analog electronics. They are available either off-the-shelf or custom designed to meet your exact requirements.

These electronic components, a result of years of intensive development, have been designed to meet the requirements of today's high-performance systems in aircraft, missile, and space environments, as well as industry.

PCD servo electronics may be found in missile systems, avionic systems, air traffic control systems, air defense systems, helicopter avionics, torpedo systems, and many others, including commercial, industrial, and aircraft applications.

Full Line of Servo Amplifiers

PCD's Electronic Division manufactures a full line of Servo Amplifiers—probably the most complete available under one roof—ranging from 2 to 100 watts of output power.

It would be impossible to list the complete line of designs in our files, which are available to apply to your servo loop problems. However, by use of the available file of designs and years of experience, PCD can custom design units to meet your exacting requirements quickly and at a low cost. If product obsolescence is forcing you to redesign or buy new systems, PCD is the company to call. We can meet or exceed your servo amplifier requirements and keep your systems running through the new century.

Outstanding Advantages

  • High-Density Packaging

PCD's 0.3-cubic-inch, 6-watt Servo Amplifier with gains of up to 5,000 is an outstanding example of PCD capability in high-density packaging. The unique design and packaging concept of our model S432 108 lends itself to applications where miniaturization and minimum weight are critical requirements.

  • High Power

For high power in minimum volume, PCD’s 40-watt amplifier S475101 heads the list. High gains and input impedances offer the design engineer a wide range of latitude in designing his servo loop system.

  • Integral Power Supply

Models S4222, S5323, S4722, and S5722 are suitable for applications, where DC power is not available. These units are powered from a 400 Hz 26VRMS line available in most servo systems. The internal generation of DC power is accomplished with minimal increased size or weight. At the same time, the need for external tuning and phase shift capacitors is eliminated. These units also feature load current, limiting and withstanding a sustained short circuit on the output.

  • High Quality at Low Cost

PCD's "product engineered" concepts allow for high quality and low cost in all units. In addition, high-volume production techniques have resulted in further cost reduction.

  • Standards and Qualification

Design criteria of all units described herein, meet the requirements of most military specifications. Standard design specifications provide for 10,000 hours of operating life with MTBF calculations on all units in accordance with procedures outlined in MIL Handbook 217.

  • Additional Analog Products

Besides the Servo Amplifiers listed in this bulletin, PCD offers a full line of electronic components including:

  • Comparator Amplifiers
  • Resolver Buffer Amplifiers
  • Modulators
  • Switching Circuits
  • Demodulators
  • Power Supplies
  • 60 Hz Servo Amplifiers
  • Preamplifiers
  • DC Torque Amplifiers
  • Quadrature Rejection Amplifiers
  • Isolation Amplifiers
  • Operational Amplifiers

Environmental Specifications

All units are designed to meet applicable portions of military specifications MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-1275, MIL-STD-704, and MIL-STD-461. All new designs are laboratory tested to assure conformance to subject specifications.
