The TSM34C-6CG StepSERVO integrated motor is a drive+motor unit, fusing a NEMA 34 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 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 (or peak) torque that is higher than the rated holding torque increases the limits of acceleration, leading to faster cycle times. With software selectable servo loops that have been pre-tuned for various inertial loads, the TSM StepSERVO can be applied in systems where a traditional stepper would not be capable of achieving the high accuracy required.
The TSM34C-6CG StepSERVO integrated motor is specifically designed to operate on a CANopen communication network and conforms to CAN in Automation (CiA) 301 and 402 specifications. It supports Profile Position, Profile Velocity, and Homing modes, as well as the ability to run stored Q programs via Applied Motion-specific CANopen objects. All TSM34 units are set up, configured and tuned using Applied Motion’s Step-Servo Quick Tuner software with built in Q Programmer.
Each TSM34 integrated motor comes with 8 digital inputs, 4 digital outputs, and 1 analog input. The digital inputs accept signals of 5-24 VDC and can be used for connecting end-of-travel limit switches, PLC outputs, sensors, or many other signal types. 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 as an additional sensor input.
The TSM34C-6CG features two communication ports: RS-232 for configuration and CAN bus for CANopen control. An integral 5000-line (20,000 count/rev) incremental encoder is housed inside the same enclosure as the drive electronics and used for closed-loop servo control to attain highly accurate position and velocity control. Encoder counts can be accessed over the CANopen network or from within a Q program using data registers.
