How to Choose Your Accessories
DC Power Supply & AC Power Cable
  • 24-75VDC is required for ClearPath bus power. Teknic recommends 75VDC for maximum motor power.
  • ClearPath can run from power supplies up to 90VDC, but will protectively shutdown at 94VDC, so a 75VDC power supply gives you better design margin in this regard.
  • 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. See our article for further technical details & architectural comparisons.
  • One IPC power supply can typically power up to 6 ClearPath motors (application dependent - see FAQs and/or Accessories video).

Power Distribution Strip
Logic Power Backup Shown:
  • IP67/66K ClearPath motors have dedicated inputs for both main motor and logic power. During normal operation, DC power needs to be present on both power inputs.
  • The POWER4-STRIP-S is recommended when logic backup power is not needed. This board automatically jumpers and routes power to the main bus and logic pins for up to 4 motor axes.

Power Distribution Hub & Cables
Logic Power Backup Shown:
  • IP67/66K ClearPath motors have dedicated inputs for both main motor and logic power. During normal operation, DC power needs to be present on both power inputs.
  • The POWER4-HUB-S provides power distribution of main bus and logic power up to four (4) motor axes. With 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 main bus power, ClearPath can automatically return to its correct commanded position eliminating the need to rehome. This option requires a separate logic power supply, typically 12-24 VDC.

Motor Power Cable
DC Power Cable
  • This cable connects either Power Distribution Board (POWER4-HUB-S or POWER4-STRIP-S) to the ClearPath motor.
  • The DC Power cable requires a 5-pin, M12, K-coded connector on the ClearPath end and a 4-pin Molex connector on the Power Distribution Board end.
  • The cables below can be purchased directly from Teknic or they can be easily made with the proper materials and crimp tools.

Control Signals
Analog Control Signals
Using Analog Control Signals?
Analog Signals Shown:
  • Users can communicate with ClearPath-MC using digital signals. These signals are available from wide variety of devices (PLCs, switches, pushbuttons, rotary encoders, etc.).
  • ClearCore is an industrial I/O and motion controller and is plug & play with ClearPath-MC servos. It can control all of the ClearPath-MC operational modes.
  • ClearLink is an EtherNet/IP motion and I/O controller, compatible with any EtherNet/IP scanner.
  • No control signals are required for "Spin on Power Up" mode.
  • ClearPath-MC can be controlled with 0-10V or 4-20 mA analog signals by using ASU-FR510 Analog Send Unit (A/D converter).
  • For maximum noise immunity, ClearPath's optically isolated inputs use digital control signals. However, Teknic also manufactures two ADC options that can be used to integrate analog signals with ClearPath motors.
  • ClearCore is a 4-axis motion & I/O controller which include four 12-bit analog inputs. ClearCore comes with a complete C++ library along with well-commented examples to read and process analog signals into several digital signals (e.g., PWM, step/dir, etc.) making it highly flexible & configurable.
  • Teknic's "Analog Send Unit" (ASU-FR510) is a single channel ADC. There's no software API so the ASU is a single-purpose, single-axis hardware device that reads an analog signal and outputs a proportional digital frequency of pulses, making the ASU typically suited for single-axis, simpler velocity applications.

USB Setup Cable
USB Setup Cable
  • To eliminate a potential source of dirt/liquid ingress, Teknic developed an Infrared (IR) communications channel for setup and configuration of IP67/66K ClearPath Motors. Attach the USB-IR converter board to the rear motor USB-IR port (they are magnetically attached) to initiate communications.
  • Configuring IP67/66K ClearPath servos requires a Windows PC running Teknic's ClearPath MSP (Motor Setup Program) software, the USB-IR Converter, and a USB C cable, Type-A to Type-C.
  • After initial setup, the IR Communications Board and USB cable can be disconnected for standard application operation (but can also be used for diagnostic purposes during normal operation).
  • Teknic sells optional IR Communication Port covers in packs of 5. These covers help protect the motor's IR port when this channel is not being used.
