Product Launch: Linear Stepping Motors



Linear stepping motors, now available from Applied Motion Products, open new avenues for equipment designers who require high performance and excellent endurance in a very small linear actuator package.

New Product Release: 57mm and 80mm Brushless DC Motors


Applied Motion Products is proud to announce new additions of our line of brushless DC motors & drives. In addition to the line of 42mm motors introduced last year, the company is now offering six 57mm and 80mm motors. The new motors range in power from 60W to 300W with available continuous torque of 21 to 102 ounce inches and are ideal for speed control applications.

Modbus RTU + STM24 & SWM24 Integrated Steppers


Whether you are new to our products or a long-time Applied Motion Products user, we think you may be interested in what we have been working on recently. Why? Because these products and features can make your life easier by shortening the time to complete your motion control project while reducing complexity, cost, and component count.

Dial “M” for Modbus!


We here at Applied Motion Products are excited to announce the newest addition to our ever-expanding list of communication options: Modbus RTU (check out all of our downloadable app notes here).

New Standard Step Motors Available with 10ft Cables and Optional Encoder Covers


Applied Motion has offered step motors with 10 ft shielded cables for motors matched with our higher voltage drives for years. Customers see the value of having a high quality shielded cable already installed with the motor saving time and money of having to do this themselves. So we have expanded the standard offering to include cabled motors not only for the high voltage drives but for the more economical DC drives as well.

Introducing a World Class IP65 Motor and Drive Solution


Demanding industrial environments require tough motors and drives. The increasing application of automation in the food and beverage industry has driven the need for motors and drives that stand up to wet and dusty operating environments while delivering expected reliability, performance and value. Applied Motion Products has responded to these needs by developing a line of motors and integrated drive+motors that have been certified IP65 capable.

New! Drives with USB Ports


You read it right, our entire line of RS-232 based step and servo drives are now available with USB interfaces that are compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8, even the 64 bit versions. This includes the ST and STAC6 stepper drives, STM integrated steppers and the SV and BLUAC servo products.

That’s an amazing feat; how did we redesign all of that hardware in such a short time? Well, the dirty little secret is that we are actually introducing USB serial conversion cables. The products themselves are unchanged.

Ultra High Torque Step Motors


In applications where machine designers require high torque but are faced with restrictive space constraints or driver power is maxed out, ultra high torque stepper motors can provide an effective solution. The availability of this class of motor provides designers with options to achieve 25-45% greater torque in a stepper motor package that is size for size identical to a conventional motor. In some cases this can avoid the need to jump to a higher frame size to obtain sufficient torque for the application.

New Product: STM24 with Ethernet


The new STM24 models fuse a high performance motion controller with 100 MBit Ethernet communications to a high torque NEMA24 step motor. Connecting to an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix, CompactLogix or MicroLogix PLC? EtherNet/IP is also available. All STM24 models provide 340 ounce inches of torque, easily overpowering size 23 motors but still mounting in an NEMA23 form factor.

New Product: IP65-Rated Integrated Drive+Motor


The SWM24 fuses a high performance motion controller to a high torque NEMA24 step motor. (The NEMA24 frame size mounts like the popular NEMA 23 motor, but has a 15% larger cross section, allowing it to deliver more torque in the same length.) The entire package is engineered to resist the ingress of water and dust to IP65 standards. All connectors are sealed, M12 style.
