Designed for OEMsBuilt for Hazardous Locations

Class I hazardous locations are those in which flammable gases, vapors or liquids are, or may be, present in the air in quantities sufficient to produce explosive or ignitable mixtures. Zone 2, also known as Division 2, defines a hazardous location in which flammable gases, vapors or liquids are not likely to occur in normal operation but, if they do occur, will only persist for a short period of time. The STAC6-Q-H stepper drive is certified for Class I, Zone 2 locations (also known as Class I, Division 2 locations).

Explosive atmospheres are commonly found in the oil, gas, mining and printing industries, as well as in paint-finishing locations and aircraft hangars.

  • Certified Category 3 equipment under ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU

Encoder ConnectorSuperior Performance

Stepper drives from Applied Motion Products are the best in the business. The STAC6 offers best-in-class anti-resonance that ensures optimal performance of the step motor over the widest speed range. The drive is powered by single-phase 120 VAC which generates a nominal 160 volt DC internal bus voltage capable of driving the highest torque NEMA 34 and 42 frame step motors on the market.

  • Encoder feedback option for enhanced system accuracy using Stall Detection and Stall Prevention
  • Designed for use with high quality NEMA 23, 24, 34 and 42 frame step motors
  • 7 digital inputs, 3 digital outputs, all optically isolated
  • 2 analog inputs, +/-10 volt range
