Introducing STM24 Integrated Steppers

by Jeff Kordik

Applied Motion Products is proud to introduce the STM24 drive+motor. The STM24 integrates a size 24 step motor, microstepping drive and controller into a single device with a NEMA 23 mount, offering savings on space, wiring and cost over conventional motor and drive solutions. The STM24 complements Applied Motion’s popular STM17 and 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 stand-alone 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 1000-line 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.

S and Q models include four optically isolated “flex I/O” points which can be individually configured for digital input or output. A 12 bit analog input is also included.

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

The STM24 provides up to 340 oz-in of torque and can be powered from 12 to 70VDC. All STM models are CE certified and ROHS compliant. Matching DC power supplies are also available. All STM models and compatible power supplies ship from stock.
