  • Did You Know? Streaming Configuration

    Mar
    16

    For most systems, a new or replacement drive will be commissioned with ST Configurator before installation into the machine. This is a one-time event for a drive, and if a predefined configuration file is used it takes only a few minutes to complete the procedure. It does however, require a PC to load the configuration data to the drive. ST Configurator remains the recommended way to configure a new drive, but for large or very complex machines this extra step is something that the operators may wish to avoid.

  • Introducing Encoders for IP65 Stepper Motors

    Dec
    24

    Applied Motion is pleased to announce the addition of an encoder option to our IP65 rated stepping motors. We accomplish an IP65 rating of the encoder by enclosing it in a metal cover with an integrated o-ring for added protection. This provides the necessary protection to meet industry standard IP65 requirements. Both the motor and encoder leads have cable glands for seal tight protection. All in all, these features contribute to an excellent design where protection of the motor and encoder are of paramount concern.
