Whether you are new to our products or a long-time Applied Motion Products user, we think you may be interested in what we have been working on recently.  Why?  Because these products and features can make your life easier by shortening the time it takes to complete your motion control project, while also reducing complexity, cost, and component count.

Perhaps you saw our feature article last month regarding our newly supported communication protocol, Modbus RTU: Dial “M” for Modbus. Maybe you have heard about our NEMA 24 integrated steppers (STM24 and SWM24), which combine the advanced features of our microstepping drive and controller into a single device with a NEMA 23 motor mount.

In case you missed it, Modbus RTU is Applied Motion Products’ newest fieldbus protocol, which is now available on the following integrated stepper products:

•  STM24QF-3AE
•  STM24QF-3AN
•  STM24QF-3RE
•  STM24QF-3RN
•  SWM24QF-3AE

Modbus RTU operates on a serial link, and is optimized for use on RS-485. It operates on the principle of registers, which can be used to monitor the drive’s behavior, send data to and from the drive, and execute commands. It is uniquely suited to PLC applications since PLCs use a similar memory model by design. As such the Modbus RTU protocol is typically already integrated into most PLC and HMI platforms as a generic driver.

Take a look at our Application Notes for Modbus RTU that are available for download from our website.  The engineers at Applied Motion Products have already done the hard work for you by preparing and documenting these easy-to-use examples:

•  APPN0027A Modbus/RTU from Automation Direct PLC
•  APPN0029 Modbus/RTU from Proface HMI
•  APPN0030 Modbus/RTU from Beijer Electronics HMI
