We are pleased to introduce the TSM14POE StepSERVO™ Integrated Motor with Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality. The TSM14POE is a unique, single-cable solution for motion control applications requiring minimal wiring and a small footprint. By combining power and Ethernet communications into a single connector, wiring to the integrated motor is greatly simplified and the motor can be mounted almost anywhere.

Complete Solution, Minimal Cabling

The TSM14POE StepSERVO™ Integrated Motor with PoE technology offers a complete motion control solution with a motor, encoder, drive, and controller combined in a single integrated motor package. Eliminating the need to connect motor power and feedback cables to an external motor controller, the integrated motor receives its power and Ethernet communications over a single cable for greater design modularity and installation simplicity.

Features and Benefits

The motor is built upon Applied Motion’s StepSERVO™ Closed Loop Stepper Technology, which provides numerous benefits over conventional, open-loop step motor systems including higher torque and greater efficiency.

  • Compact size and integrated control electronics allow motor mounting almost anywhere.
  • StepSERVO™ Technology provides greater torque, higher acceleration rates, better efficiency, decreased motor heating, and less audible noise than traditional, open-loop step motor systems.
  • Easily adapts to existing industrial Ethernet networks with support for common protocols such as EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP.
  • Compatible with standard Ethernet cables and readily available PoE+ switches and injectors that support the IEEE 802.3at Type 2 specification.

The NEMA 14 frame TSM14POE StepSERVO™ Integrated Motor features an integral 4096-count magnetic encoder for high position and velocity accuracy. On-board motion control using Applied Motion’s Q Programming language enables the motor to run motion control profiles on its own as well as programmatically react to messages received on the Ethernet network. Two connector options, X-coded M12 and modular RJ-45, permit the use of standard, widely available Ethernet cables.
