  • Did You Know? Flex I/O on the STM24

    Oct
    11

    The new STM24SF and QF models of integrated stepping motors have four optically isolated 5-24 vdc Flex I/O points. Each of these I/O points can be configured for use as either an input or as an output, or as a pre-defined function that is based on whichever STM model you are using. Assignment of the Flex I/O points is realized by use of our free ST Configurator™ software.

  • SV7 Servo Drive with EtherNet/IP

    Oct
    11

    Applied Motion Products is excited to announce the availability of an EtherNet/IP connectivity option for our popular, low cost SV7 servo drive. The SV7 is a compact, 24 to 80 VDC sine servo drive and is available with specially matched 50 to 400 watt V series NEMA mount servo motors as well as M series metric mount, IP rated servo motors.

    The SV7-IP-EE includes eight digital inputs, four digital outputs and two +/-10V analog inputs. The EtherNet/IP command set provides access to all drive control modes, I/O and parameters using EtherNet/IP class 3 explicit messaging. Q language programs stored in the drive can also be triggered over EtherNet/IP. This servo drive is the perfect solution for applications requiring connectivity to Rockwell/Allen Bradley PLCs.

  • Did You Know? Regen Clamp for DC Drives

    Sep
    11

    Many servo and stepper systems require a clamping circuit to limit increases in power supply voltage when the motor is decelerating under load. As the motor reduces its speed it increases the voltage on the DC bus of the drive. This is commonly referred to as “regeneration”, and occurs when DC motors are driven by their load. Generally, this situation occurs in cases where a large inertial mass is being decelerated.
