New Product: IP65-Rated Integrated Drive+Motor

by Jeff Kordik

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. Mating cord sets are available from stock to get you up and running quickly.

All SWM24 models provide 340 ounce inches of holding torque and are available with Ethernet or RS-232 communication. All models include a 4000 count/rev optical encoder, safely housed inside, to provide closed-loop features including stall detection, position verification, position maintenance and Applied Motion's proprietary stall prevention algorithm. Our auto tuned digital current control and high resolution microstepping engine provide smooth, quiet motion, while an advanced anti-resonance algorithm with electronic damping ensures maximum torque utilization, rapid acceleration, and fast settling times.

The S and SF models can be used in step direction or velocity control applications. The Q and QF models include stored programming capability using Applied Motion’s powerful Q programming language. All models can be easily configured and programmed using our free ST Configurator™ software.

Software applications can communicate with the SWM24 in real time, streaming SCL and Q commands over standard 100 megabit Ethernet cabling, addressing and protocols. The RS-232 versions also support streaming commands at bit rates from 9600 to 115,200.

Connecting to an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix, CompactLogix or MicroLogix PLC? EtherNet/IP is also available.

The SWM24 accepts 12 to 70 volt DC power.  Excellent performance will be achieved when powered by our PS320A48 48 volt DC power supply.
