  • Introducing STAC5 Stepper Drives

    Dec
    31

    Applied Motion Products is pleased to introduce the STAC5 step motor driver. The STAC5 provides up to 5 amps per phase from a high bus voltage with sophisticated current control, delivering high torque over a board range of speeds. An advanced anti-resonance algorithm with electronic damping allows for maximum torque utilization and fast settling times.

    The STAC5 is available in 120VAC and 220VAC versions, both housed in a compact package.

  • Did You Know? - Host Control of S Drives

    Nov

    Our less expensive “S” models can be controlled in real time by a host!

    Most of Applied Motion’s newer drives feature “S”, “Q”, and “Si” models. Each of these model types offer different ways for fitting into the overall control architecture of the device being designed.

    • “S” models are typically controlled by an external pulse source – step & direction.
    • “Q” models are programmable via an ASCII based programming language and can act as stand alone or host controlled motion controllers.

    30

    Applied Motion Products’ DSP-based stepper drives with encoder options offer a unique feature. The stall prevention feature of the STAC6, ST5, ST10 stepper drives and STM integrated steppers not only prevents stalling, but maintains the position of the motor at rest as well. This feature is called position maintenance.
