Ioni Drives


VSD (Discontinued)

Servo Card


Maple Leaf DashX is the authorized Canadian distributor of Granite Devices products - we ship worldwide!




Preliminary Specifications.

  • 5-55VDC (70VDC Effective)
  • 15A (Adaptive current limiting)
  • Run directly via Mach4 software
  • Same or lower price than the VSD drives.
  • 100VDC Model coming later in the year


VSD - Discontinued

  • The VSD drives have been replaced by the brand new IONI drives.
  • We will post details of the new drives as soon as they are avaliable.
  • Can be run in Dual DC mode allowing for 1 card to run 2 seperate servo motors!
  • Easy setup via GDtool software GDtool
  • SimpleMotion control library for PC, C/C++/C#, LabVIEW etc
  • Various low level command inputs (step/dir, PWM, quadrature, ±10V)
  • Easy connection to fieldbuses like EtherCAT or CANopen (more info)
  • Most AC/BLDC/DC and linear servo motors supported
  • Advanced sinusoidal field oriented control (FOC)
  • True current control protects equipment and boosts responsiveness
  • 12-160 VDC supply voltage
  • 10A cont. 20A peak output for AC/BLDC motors
  • 14A cont. 40A peak output for brush DC motors
  • Reliability guaranteed by wide safety margins and quality components 


  • Electrical & mechanical braking of motor in faults & disable
  • Fully automatic internal homing controller
  • Optimized for CNC and machine automation
  • Robust 200V 60A MOSFET power stage
  • Panel installation, 19" rack compatible. See example.
  • Regenerative brake resistor output
  • Hard to kill: short circuit, over current, over temperature, I²t, over voltage and under voltage protections
  • Advanced positioning with acceleration limit and smoothing
  • Wide selection of control I/O's, see Connectivity.
  • The only difference between the VSD-XE and the VSD-E is the heatsink, and warranty. They are the same hardware. The lower continuous power rating is only due to the lack of heatsink.
