Power Supply for Stepper Drives

Power Supply for Stepper Drives

When choosing a power supply for a stepping motor driver there are performance and sizing issues that must be addressed.  An undersized power supply can lead to poor performance and even possible damage to the stepping motor driver, which can be both time consuming and expensive.  However, bipolar chopping stepping motor drives are quite efficient and may not require as large a supply as you might suspect.

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

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.
