The STAC5-IP-N120 stepper drive employs sophisticated current control designed for optimal smoothness over a wide speed range. Anti-resonance, torque ripple smoothing, and microstepping work together to bring step motor performance to a new high. To complement the drive Applied Motion offers a specially matched set of low-loss NEMA 23 and 34 frame motors (see Related and Recommended Products below), all specifically designed with high voltage operation in mind. Power to the drive comes from single-phase 120 VAC, and the drive can output up to 5.0 A/phase (peak-of-sine) to the step motor. Protection features like over-voltage, over-temperature, and over-current prevent damage while running in adverse conditions.
The STAC5-IP-N120 incorporates EtherNet/IP network communications, the widely used industrial protocol for manufacturing automation applications. With EtherNet/IP users can control, configure and query the drive using an open, standards-based, industrial Ethernet connection at speeds up to 100 MBits/sec. The STAC5-IP drives run all of the same control modes as STAC5-Q drives, with the addition that all drive features can be accessed over EtherNet/IP, including more than 100 commands and 130 registers for controlling motion, I/O, configuration, polling, math, register manipulation, and Q programming.
For connecting to external devices such as limit switches, proximity or photoelectric sensors, PLC I/O, lamps, and other devices, the drive comes with 12 digital inputs, 6 digital outputs, and 1 analog input. In addition to EtherNet/IP the drive supports Ethernet TCP and UDP protocols for sending commands from Applied Motion’s proprietary Serial Command Language (SCL). The same 10/100 Mbit Ethernet port on the drive is also used for configuring and programming the drive using the ST Configurator™ and Q Programmer™ software applications, respectively.
This step motor drive is UL Recognized (File No. E332730), CE approved, and RoHS compliant.
