The TXM34×3B-IP 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 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 (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.
TruCount™ absolute encoders provide the ultimate in hassle-free positioning of rotary and linear axes. TruCount encoders are multi-turn, absolute encoders that don’t require batteries or external power to track encoder position while the motor is powered off. There are no mechanical gears in TruCount encoders. The encoders make use of a novel energy harvesting technique that continues to track motor position when the motor is powered off. Any amount of displacement in the shaft causes enough energy to be created for the motor to continue tracking its absolute position. It is an extremely effective approach to multi-turn, absolute position tracking. Utilizing multi-turn, absolute encoders in motion control applications reduces downtime by shortening machine power up sequences and eliminates the need for homing runs after power cycles and emergency stops (e-stops).
The TXM34×3B-IP StepSERVO integrated StepSERVO 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 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 TXM34 units are setup, configured and tuned using Applied Motion’s Step-Servo Quick Tuner software with built in Q Programmer.
Each TXM34 integrated motor comes with 5 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 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 for velocity and position control.
The TXM34×3B-IP 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). As well as the popular Modbus/TCP protocol.
All TXM34 models are RoHS compliant and meet IP65 standards to ensure reliable operation in wet and dusty installation environments.
