Applied Motion’s powerful stepper drive costs the same as a competitors drive without a built-in power supply, and features…      

  • High performance
  • Built-in power supply & regeneration clamp
  • 120 and 220 VAC models
  • Accepts pulse & direction, streaming commands, stored programming
  • 10/100 MBit Ethernet & EtherNet/IP
  • Advanced anti-resonance
  • Matching high performance motors
AMP's STAC5 Microstep Driver with HT23 Motor

AMP’s STAC5 Microstep Driver with HT23 Motor

The STAC5 provides up to 5 amps per phase from a high bus voltage with sophisticated current control, delivering high torque over a board range of speeds.  An advanced anti-resonance algorithm with electronic damping allows for maximum torque utilization and fast settling times.

The STAC5 is available in 120VAC and 220VAC versions, both housed in a compact package.

All STAC5 models include 100Mbit Ethernet communication.  The Ethernet interface is used to configure the STAC5 and motor, and also supports the SCL and Q languages over standard Ethernet cabling, addressing and protocols.There are 3 control options available with the STAC5 stepper drives: S, Q and IP.

  • “S” drives can operate in pulse & direction, velocity, and streaming serial (SCL) control modes.  To select the control mode, as well as to setup the motor and configure other drive parameters, use the ST Configurator™ software.
  • “Q” drives can operate in all of the same control modes as an S drive, plus they have the ability to run stand-alone Q programs stored in non-volatile memory.  Q programs are created using the Q Programmer™ software, which provides multi-tasking, math functions, conditional processing, data register manipulation, and more features in a robust yet simple text-based programming language.  Like S drives, Q drives must first be setup and configured using the ST Configurator™ software.
  • “IP” drives come with built-in 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.  The STAC5-IP drives run all of the same control modes as STAC5-Q drives, with the addition that all drive 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.  STAC5-IP drives are setup and configured using ST Configurator™, and Q programs are created using Q Programmer™.

An encoder feedback option provides position verification, stall detection and/or stall prevention.  Applied Motion’s proprietary stall prevention algorithm monitors rotor lag and automatically reduces speed or acceleration to avoid motor stalls, allowing 100% torque utilization.

The STAC5 can be purchased with a wide range of high torque step motors, optimized for use with the drive.  Three lengths of HT23 are available in single and double shaft configurations:  HT23-552, HT23-553 and HT23-554, with holding torque ranging from 84 to 255 ounce-inches.  Three lengths of HT34 are also available in single and double shaft configurations:  HT34-495, HT34-496 and HT34-497, with holding torque ranging from 550 to 1700 ounce-inches.

Many communication standards have been applied to machine and motion control with varying degrees of success.   Some of the more popular are EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, CANopen, DeviceNet and Profibus.  EtherNet/IP has become particularly popular because it is compatible with Rockwell/Allen Bradley PLCs, runs on standard Ethernet hardware, and employs the robust and proven Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) for communication, control and data gathering.

EtherNet/IP Compatible Stepper Drives

EtherNet/IP Compatible Stepper Drives

Applied Motion Products is pleased to announce the availability of eight new EtherNet/IP compatible step motor drives.   In addition to controlling a wide range of high torque step motors, these units have plentiful, industrial strength I/O and support more than 100 commands and 130 registers over the EtherNet/IP protocol with a communication speed of 100 Mbits/second.

In addition to point to point moves, homing, jogging, registration and encoder following, I/O commands and real time polling are fully supported.  Q programs can also be stored in the drive and triggered via EtherNet/IP, allowing the drive to execute complex, intelligent command sequences.

We offer four DC powered EtherNet/IP drives.  The ST5-IP-EN and ST10-IP-EN can control step motors ranging from NEMA sizes 11 to 34, producing up to 1200 oz-in of dynamic torque.  Need encoder feedback?  The ST5-IP-EE and ST10-IP-EE models include an encoder feedback option that can detect and prevent motor stalls using Applied Motion’s proprietary stall prevention algorithm.

If you prefer an AC powered unit, the STAC5 is available in 120VAC (STAC5-IP-N120) and 220VAC (STAC5-IP-N220) models that efficiently drive our specially designed, high torque NEMA 23 and 34 motors.  The STAC5-IP-E120 and STAC5-IP-E220 support encoder feedback with stall detection and stall prevention.

Both DC and AC powered drives include our auto-tuned digital current control, which provides smooth, quiet motion.  An advanced anti-resonance algorithm with electronic damping allows for maximum torque utilization, rapid acceleration, and fast settling times.

All of our EtherNet/IP drives are CE certified and ROHS compliant. AC powered models are UL recognized.
