Size 24 Integrated Drive+Motor Family

by Jeff Kordik

Applied Motion Products continues to expand their line of STM24 high torque integrated step motors with additional industrial networking and harsh environment options. The NEMA 24 frame size mounts like the popular NEMA 23 step motor, but has a 15% larger cross section, allowing it to deliver up to 340 oz-in holding torque.

All models can be purchased with 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. The 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, velocity control or streaming command applications. The Q and QF models add stored programming capability using Applied Motion’s powerful Q programming language. All models can be easily configured and programmed using free ST Configurator software.

The STM24 is available with RS-232, RS-485, Modbus, CANopen, Ethernet, or EtherNet/IP communication. For more information about these communication options, please read the recent industrial networking news articles.

For operation in harsh environments, please consider the SWM24: The entire package is engineered to resist the ingress of water and dust and is TUV certified to IP65 standards. All connectors are sealed, M12 style and a standard optical encoder is housed safely inside. Mating cord sets are available from stock to get you up and running quickly.

If you are in the market for something a bit more compact, you might consider the STM17 or STM23, pictured below alongside the STM24.
