The SSM23Q-4EG integrated StepSERVO™ is a drive+motor unit, fusing a NEMA 23 step motor and a servo 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.
StepSERVO technology combines the high torque capabilities of a step motor with the closed loop dynamic control of a servo system. The result is a highly customizable all-in-one motion control solution that operates quietly and efficiently, requiring only the minimum amount of current to maintain commanded position and velocity. Boost torque of 25-50% higher than rated holding torque increases the limits of acceleration, leading to faster cycle times. StepSERVO integrated motors can be applied in systems where a traditional stepper motor would not be capable of achieving the high accuracy required.
The SSM23Q-4EG integrated StepSERVO can be operated in several different control modes, including Streaming Command mode using either SCL, Pulse & Direction mode, and Velocity mode, plus it has the ability to run a Q program stored in non-volatile memory. Q programs provides powerful commands for motion, I/O, conditional processing, multi-tasking, math functions, and more. All SSM23 units are setup, configured and tuned using Applied Motion’s Step-Servo Quick Tuner software with built in Q Programmer.
Each SSM23Q integrated StepSERVO 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 SSM23Q-4EG comes with a fast 10/100 MBit Ethernet port for programming and EtherNet/IP communications. The same port also supports TCP and UDP protocols for sending commands from Applied Motion’s proprietary serial command language (SCL).
All SSM23Q models are RoHS compliant.
