Applied Motion Products’ new daisy-chain board connector for its NEMA 11 frame StepSERVO Integrated Motors separates communication terminals into two standalone power and I/O connectors, making it easier to establish daisy-chain connections on RS-485 and Modbus RTU networks.
Standard configurations of Applied Motion’s TSM11 (NEMA 11 frame) integrated motors incorporate a single 12-pin header that provides the power supply, input, output, and RS-485 communication terminals in a small integrated space without sacrificing input and output connectivity to other devices, controllers, or HMIs on the machine. Designing small integrated motors means fitting as much functionality as possible into a tiny NEMA 11 frame size.
As many users of the compact motor had space for a slightly larger connector arrangement, Applied Motion configured a new three-connector as an optional add-on component to three lengths of its TSM11 integrated motors including TSM11Q-1RM-H01, TSM11Q-2RM-H01, and TSM11Q-3RM-H01. Owners of existing single-connector modules also can upgrade their TSM11 integrated motors in the field by purchasing the daisy-chain connector board separately under part number 8500-005.
For applications demanding greater torque, users can equip TSM11 StepSERVO Integrated Motors with planetary gearheads. The PH Planetary Gearheads offer ratios from 4:1 to 22:1, with additional ratios available upon request. These planetary gearboxes feature an all-steel gear train for long life and an attractive list price.
