WATSONVILLE, CA ‚â€“ Applied Motion Products introduces the STM Drive+Motor solution. The STM is a stepper drive and motor unit fused into a single device that offers significant savings on space, wiring and cost when compared with conventional motor and drive solutions.
Powerful features such as advanced current control, anti-resonance technology, torque ripple smoothing and microstep emulation allow the STM to deliver optimized stepper performance ideal for medical, packaging, semiconductor and a wide variety of other automation applications. STM drive+motor units come standard with protection against over and under voltage, over-temp, motor shorts and motor open phase. They are RoHS compliant and CE certified.
The STM is available in lengths of 92.4 mm with an output torque of up to 125 oz-in, or 114.4 mm with an output torque of up to 245 oz-in. They provide three digital inputs, one digital output and one analog output. Users can choose from an RS232 or RS485 communication interface and an optional 1000 line encoder that is integrated to the motor body without increasing the size of the unit. The optional encoder provides stall detect and stall prevention functionality.
Two versions with different control options are available; the S version with step and direction input, and the programmable Q version. The STM-S is quickly and easily configured with graphical, intuitive CONFIGURATOR software. The STM-S can be configured from a drop-down menu, or the user can quickly create custom motor configurations if desired. The STM-Q is well suited for more complex motion. It provides stand-alone operation and is quickly programmed with the robust Q programming environment, which delivers a number of benefits including register manipulation, conditional processing, math functions, multi-tasking and ‚â€œgeneric‚â€ HMI compatibility.
