Introducing STM17 Integrated Steppers

by Jeff Kordik

We are pleased to introduce the STM17 drive+motor. The STM17 integrates a size 17 step motor, microstepping drive and controller into a single device, offering savings on space, wiring and cost over conventional motor and drive solutions. The STM17 complements Applied Motion’s popular STM23 drive+motor family.

The “S” models accept step and direction, analog input, joystick control, and streaming host commands using the SCL language. “Q” models add standalone programmable operation using the Q programming language. This versatile language includes high-level features such as complex motion, multi-tasking, conditional programming, math functions, register access, and more. Both S and Q models offer RS-232 or RS-485 communication. An optional 4000 count encoder, integrated into the motor housing, provides stall detection and/or stall prevention. Applied Motion’s proprietary stall prevention algorithm monitors rotor lag and automatically reduces speed or acceleration to avoid motor stalls, allowing 100% torque utilization.

A CANopen version is also available, supporting the DS301 and DSP402 standards.

The STM17 provides up to 68 oz-in of torque and can be powered from 12 to 48VDC. All STM models are CE certified and ROHS compliant. All STM models and compatible power supplies ship from stock.
