Introduction to Step Motors February 17, 2012

Nema Frame Step Motors

A step motor is a device whose normal shaft motion consists of discrete angular movements of essentially uniform magnitude when driven from sequentially switched DC power supply.

A step motor is a digital input-output device. It is particularly well suited to the type of application where control signals appear as digital pulses rather than analog voltages.  One digital pulse to a step motor drive or translator causes the motor to increment one precise angle of motion. As the digital pulses increase in frequency, the step movement changes into continuous rotation.

The new STM24 SF and QF models of integrated stepping motors have four optically isolated 5-24 vdc Flex I/O points. These points can be configured for use as either an input or as an output, or as a pre-defined function that is based on whichever STM model you are using. Assignment of the Flex I/O points is realized by use of our free ST Configurator™ software. Simply open our ST Configurator™ software and select the Control Mode you wish to operate in by pressing the Motion & I/O button. We accomplish the assignment of the Flex I/O as shown in the screen captures below:

Once you have assigned the Flex I/O in ST Configurator™ make sure to press the Download to Drive button in ST Configurator™.

Now just confirm the assignments you made by verifying them in the table on the right hand side of the ST Configurator™ screen.

You’re done, it’s that easy!

STM24 models start at $375.00 US and can ship in < 1 week!

Integrated Stepper Motors Feature CANopen Connectivity August 8, 2011

Posted by Servo2Go.com in New Product Press Releases.

add a comment

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.

White Paper: Detection and Shielding of Noise in Stepper Motor Systems April 5, 2011

Posted by Servo2Go.com in Technical Support Information.
Tags: , , ,
add a comment

What is Noise:

“Noise” or “Interference” consists of unwanted electrical signals which superimposes on and masks the desired signal. Designing a control system is challenging enough, but designing a control system that has noise immunity adds a whole other dimension. Ideally, you want the noise-to-signal ratio to be as small as possible. Noise is always present in a system that involves high power and small signal circuitry. The key is to manage the noise so that it does not interfere with the performance of the system at hand.

Motion Checker Eases Stepper Motor Prototyping March 8, 2011

Posted by Servo2Go.com in New Product Press Releases.

add a comment

The Nippon Pulse Motion Checkers are palm-sized controllers that contain an integrated driver circuit and are designed to offer engineers an easy and affordable option to drive and control two-phase stepper motors during the prototyping and analysis phase.

Step Motor Motion Checker

There are four Motion Checker options, depending how complicated prototyping is:

The Motion Checker 1 is designed to make a stepper motor spin at a predetermined speed and in a certain direction. This is a good option if an engineer simply wants to ensure a stepper motor is working properly.

With the Motion Checker 2, engineers can adjust the speed and program in acceleration/deceleration rates.

The Motion Checker 3 allows the user to program a simple program for a motion system. Users are able to simulate the motion required for the motor in the project and can also attach the Motion Checker 3 to an external device to receive input/output signals.

Finally, the Motion Checker 5 is similar to the Motion Checker 3, however, the memory feature in the Motion Checker 5 retains the program settings so users are able to reuse motion profiles.

add a comment

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.
