Learn how to set up and use the TruCount™ Absolute Encoder in both Step-Servo Quick Tuner and Studio5000. We'll discuss homing the encoder, setting up software limits positions, and we'll walk through a real example of configuring Electronic Gearing with a linear actuator to make move calculations easy.

This video takes a deep dive into the theory behind hard stop homing. Learn how to easily implement hard stop homing in a Studio5000 project using our freely available Add On Instruction (AOI). This video is a good primer on hard stop homing whether or not you’re using EtherNet/IP communications or an Allen-Bradley PLC to command motion.
By following the demo in this video, you'll get your EtherNet/IP drive or integrated motor moving in velocity mode. You'll also take a look inside our AOIs in this tutorial to get understand the importance of RPI.
By following the demo in this video, you can get your Applied Motion Products EtherNet/IP drive or integrated motor talking to a Rockwell controller in about 10 minutes. The demo makes use of Application Note 46 - EtherNet/IP for Add On Instructions for RSLogix, which can be downloaded from our Application Notes page
Intended for use in stand-alone applications, Si Programmer™ provides an extremely friendly, point-and-click, graphical interface that doesn’t require any previous programming experience. The software runs on Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, NT, ME, or 98. To download the Si Programmer™ installer visit the Si Programmer™ software page.
Applied Motion Products offer closed loop control features on all of our stepper drives, motors, and integrated products by utilizing incremental quadrature encoders mounted to the rear shaft of the step motor. Stepper drives with encoder feedback connectors can be married to double-shaft step motors with encoders pre-assembled for you. Integrated steppers are available with encoders built directly into the housing of the motor.
Adding an encoder to your stepper system greatly enhances performance by providing you with these closed-loop functions: Stall Detection and Stall Prevention.
The ST series step motor drives come with a variety of communication options including RS-232, RS-485, CANopen, and now Ethernet.
Part 1 of 3 provides an overview of the ST series stepper drives, the connectors on the Ethernet version, and how to download software from our website.
