WAM Specifications

Power Requirements

The standard WAM system requires an input voltage of 18-90VDC. The power requirements for both 4-DOF and 7-DOF WAMs are summarized in the table below. For AC operation, a converter for AC mode is supplied. The converter requires 50-60 Hz single-phase 100-120 VAC @ 7A or 200-240 VAC @ 3.5A for proper operation

DC Power Requirements
