The TXM24IP-3EG integrated StepSERVO™ is a drive+motor unit, fusing a NEMA 24 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 TXM24IP-3EG integrated StepSERVO 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. 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 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 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 TXM24 units are setup, configured and tuned using Applied Motion’s Step-Servo Quick Tuner software with built in Q Programmer.
Each TXM24 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 TXM24IP-3EG 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 TXM24 models are RoHS compliant. The TXM motors also meet IP65 standards to ensure reliable operation in wet and dusty installation environments.
