100% digital control of all power supply functions and parameters allows for unique configurations and future upgrades or requirements. Includes digital frequency syntheses
Industry leading data acquisition rate speed of .5 ms due to advanced multi-core architecture. Increased weld accuracy and repeatability.
Digi-Trac tuning automatically tracks the resonant frequency digitally. Adjust the output frequency to match the acoustic stack (sonotrode, booster, and transducer) this is done for every weld cycle and eliminates the need to manually tune the generator.
Ultrasonic overload protection, with status indicator for ease of troubleshooting. The overload power limit is based on true RMS power output level.
Line Voltage Regulation compensates for line fluctuations assuring consistent amplitude.
Temperature Drift Compensation allows for seamless acoustic stack operation, and automatically compensates for acoustic stack temperature changes.
Patented Pulse-Width Modulation design delivers power more efficiently with substantially less stress on the electrical and acoustic components for superior performance reliability and extended life.
Linear Ramp Soft-start algorithm allows the acoustic stack to be brought to operating amplitude smoothly, minimizing start-up surges and abnormal stress to stack and power supply.
Load Regulation provides constant ultrasound amplitude automatically regardless of the power draw. The ultrasonic output amplitude level is held to within 1% to provide weld process consistency and reduced weld cycle times.
Process Capability (Cpk) - Third party independent study comparing competitive high end pneumatic welder against Dukane iQ Servo. Results demonstrate a large increase in the Process Capability Index (Cpk), proving the iQ Servo's superior welding process.
The most technologically advanced ultrasonic weldingcontrol features available today are found in Dukane’s iQ Series equipment. Our patented, 100% digitally controlled generator, ultra-rigid press, coupled with the iQ Explorer user-interface provide superior accuracy and ease of use. The generators have new multi-core processor technology that allows them to operate at a processing rate of .5 milliseconds.
iQ Explorer’s intuitive touch-screen graphical menu structure incorporates a one-page setup screen that makes welder operation easy to learn and program. Ethernet connectivity, wireless networking, and multiple USB ports are all options for weld and graph data storage. Over 25 programmable upper and lower process limits along with reference, weld graph logic are available for weld diagnostics and process consistency.
