The STM23S-3EN integrated stepper is a drive+motor unit, fusing a NEMA 23 step motor and a sophisticated 5.0 A/phase (peak-of-sine) stepper drive into a single device. Power to the drive, located at the rear of the motor, must be supplied by an external DC supply. See Related and Recommended Products below for compatible 24 and 48 volt DC power supplies.
The STM23S-3EN integrated stepper can operate in the following control modes: step (pulse) & direction, velocity (oscillator), and streaming serial commands (SCL). The STM23S is setup and configured using Applied Motion’s ST Configurator™ software.
Each STM23S integrated stepper comes with 3 digital inputs, 1 digital output, and 1 analog input. The digital inputs accept signals of 5-24 VDC and can be used for connecting pulse & direction signals, end-of-travel limit switches, jog switches, quadrature encoder signals, PLC outputs, sensors, or many other signal types. The digital output can be connected to PLC inputs, counters, lights, relays, or other devices. The analog input accepts 0-5 VDC signals and can be used for velocity and position control.
The STM23S-3EN comes with an Ethernet port for configuration and communications. The Ethernet port is fast 10/100 Mbit, and the drive supports both TCP and UDP communication protocols.
All STM23S models are CE approved and RoHS compliant.
