The TSM23×4G-IP StepSERVO Integrated Motor 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 Recommended Products below for compatible 48 volt DC power supplies.
StepSERVO™ Closed Loop Stepper Technology
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 configurable 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 (or peak) torque that is higher than the 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 TSM23×4G-IP StepSERVO Integrated Motor incorporates EtherNet/IP network communications, the widely used industrial protocol for manufacturing automation applications. Implicit (Class 1) and explicit (Class 3) messaging are supported. 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. All drive+motor 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. This integrated StepSERVO can be operated in several different control modes, including Streaming Command mode using SCL, Pulse & Direction mode and Velocity mode. The motor can also run a Q program stored in non-volatile memory. Q programs are created using Applied Motion’s Q Programmer™ software, which provides powerful commands for motion, I/O, conditional processing, multi-tasking, math functions and more. All TSM23 units are set up, configured and tuned using Applied Motion’s Step-Servo Quick Tuner software with built-in Q Programmer.
Inputs and Outputs
Each TSM23×4G-IP integrated motor comes with 6 digital inputs, 3 digital outputs, 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 other signals. The digital outputs 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 TSM23×4G-IP comes with fast 10/100 Mbit dual-port Ethernet for programming and EtherNet/IP communications. The same ports support TCP and UDP protocols for sending commands from Applied Motion’s proprietary serial command language (SCL) as well as the popular Modbus TCP protocol.
