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

Servo2Go.com 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 plenty of 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.

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

Applied Motion Products of Watsonville, CA have just released a new line of High Torque Integrated Stepper Motors with built-in CANopen communications.  The STM24 Series is a Nema 24 frame hybrid step motor series with holding torque rated to 340 oz-in .

CANopen is a standardized communication protocol for use in distributed automation control systems.  It is a popular fieldbus option for applications that require the transmission of time-critical data to and from the devices on the network.

The STM24 CANopen Integrated Motors adhere to CAN in Automation (CiA) specifications DS301 and DSP402.  Profile Position, Profile Velocity, and Homing modes are fully supported at data rates up to 1 Mbps.  Applied Motion also provides specific CANopen objects for executing stored Q programs* and accessing internal data registers in the products.  

Each STM integrates a NEMA step motor, microstepping drive and controller into a single device, offering savings on space, wiring and cost over conventional motor and drive solutions.  

The “S” version models accept step and direction, analog input, joystick control, and streaming host commands using the SCL language. “Q” version models add stand-alone programmable operation using the Q programming language. This versatile language includes high-level features such as complex motion, multi-tasking, conditional programming, math functions, register access, and more. Both S and Q models offer RS-232 or RS-485 communication.

An optional 4000 count encoder, integrated into the motor housing, provides stall detection and stall prevention.  Applied Motion’s proprietary stall prevention algorithm monitors rotor lag and automatically reduces speed and acceleration to avoid motor stalls, allowing 100% torque utilization.

*Stored Q programs in CANopen products can only be accessed via the CANopen network by request from the host controller.  CANopen products cannot run Q programs stand-alone.

Technical Whitepaper: EtherNet/IP with Applied Motion Drives August 2, 2011

EtherNet/IP was introduced in 2001 and today is the most developed, proven and complete industrial Ethernet network solution available for manufacturing automation. EtherNet/IP is a member of a family of networks that implements the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) at its upper layers. CIP encompasses a comprehensive suite of messages and services for a variety of manufacturing automation applications, including control, safety, synchronization, motion, configuration and information. As a truly media independent protocol that is supported by hundreds of vendors around the world, CIP provides users with a unified communication architecture throughout the manufacturing enterprise.

EtherNet/IP with Applied Motion Drives

EtherNet/IP offers several unique advantages for manufacturing automation applications:

>Complete producer-consumer services let you simultaneously control, configure and collect data from intelligent devices over a single network or use a single network as a backbone for multiple distributed CIP networks
>Compatible with standard Internet protocols – e.g. HTTP, FTP, SNMP and DHCP – and standard industrial protocols for data access and exchanges such as OPC
>Compliance with IEEE Ethernet standards provides users with a choice of network interface speeds-  e.g. 10, 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps – and a flexible network architecture compatible with commercially available Ethernet installation options including copper, fiber, fiber ring and wireless

Servo2Go.com is pleased to introduce the STAC5 step motor driver from Applied Motion Products. 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.

AMP's STAC5 Microstep Driver with HT23 Motor

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.

The “S” models accept step and direction, analog input, joystick control, and streaming host commands using the SCL language. “S” models include four digital inputs, a 12-bit analog input, and two digital outputs. “Q” models add standalone programmable operation using the Q programming language. This versatile language includes high-level features such as complex motion, multi-tasking, conditional programming, math functions, register access, and more. The “Q” models include 12 digital inputs, a 12 bit analog input, and six digital outputs.

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.

The STAC5 lists at $473 US/ea. Delivery is typically stock to 2 weeks.
