SWM Integrated IP65 Step Motors

SWM Integrated IP65 Step Motors

SWM integrated steppers from Applied Motion Products Inc. are IP65 rated drive+motor units, fusing step motor and drive components into a single splash proof and dustproof device. This space-saving design eliminates wiring and saves on cost over conventional motor and drive solutions.

The SWM24 integrated steppers combine high torque NEMA 24 step motors with a sophisticated, 6.0 A/phase (peak-of-sine) step motor drive. Power to the drive, located at the rear of the motor, must be supplied by an external DC supply. Applied Motion offers compatible 24 and 48 volt DC power supplies for exactly this purpose.

All SWM24 integrated steppers are RoHS and CE compliant.  Features include:

  • Rated IP65 for wet and dusty environments
  • M12 connectors
  • Anti-resonance
  • Torque ripple smoothing
  • Microstep emulation
  • NEMA 24 frame size
  • Stored programming option for stand-alone operation
  • Step direction, velocity and streaming command control modes
  • RS-232, Ethernet and EtherNet/IP Communication options
  • Modbus/RTU for easy communication with PLC or HMI
  • Built-in incremental encoder

Gam SPH Gearhead Family

Gam SPH Gearhead Family

Greenville, DE — Backlash and Torsional Rigidity are both important values to consider when selecting a high precision gearbox as they both affect lost motion (arcmin). GAM’s SPH Flange Gearbox has a single piece steel housing and ring gear machined directly inside for maximum stiffness. The helical gears are precision cut and ground for extremely quiet and smooth torque transmission with a standard backlash rating of < 3 arcmin or < 1 arcmin reduced.

Download the new SPH brochure to see how the SPH Flange stacks up to other flange gearboxes available on the market when it comes to lost motion.

The DVC series motor controllers from Advanced Motion Controls are digital four-quadrant servo drives purpose-designed and built to operate today’s modern mobile electric vehicular platforms.  Providing high power from battery supplies, the DVC series features a compact design, IP65 construction and multiple operating modes for controlling either permanent magnet brushed or brushless motors.  Whether for traction / propulsion, steering, lifting or any other electrically driven actuation, the DVC series is the newest member in a long line of successful motor controlling solutions from Advanced Motion Controls.

The ability to maximize battery life and extend vehicle operations, essentially running ‘lean and mean’, is the key to keeping a vehicle operating at peak performance.  With unmatched power density, high efficiency, low weight, cool thermal operation and regen all built in, selecting the DVC series is the obvious choice.

The DVC Series motor controllers operate in torque, velocity, or position mode and provide high power from battery supplies with multiple operating modes for either 3Φ (servo, closed loop vector, or closed loop stepper) or 1Φ motors.  The DVC Series communicate over CANopen and are configured with AMC’s DriveWare® 7 configuration software.

Specific applications include: mobile robots, AGV’s, UGV’s, material handling and transport vehicles in both industrial and military environments.

Galil Logo SnippetGalil manufactures a wide range of single and multi-axis motion controllers designed to solve a wide range of motion control applications.  For clarity, the controllers are broken down into their respective communication formats.  The most common PC based solution is the plug and play PCI Bus.  Other PC based form factors include ISA, VME, CompactPCI, and PC/104 boards.  For applications where a Stand-Alone controller (not dependant on a PC) is needed, there are controllers with RS232, USB and Ethernet connectivity.

Galil’s Single / Multi-Axis Motion Controller Platforms includes:

Galil Controller Accessories

Galil also provides many accessories such as interconnect modules and cables for fast and easy prototyping. Software tools such as WSDK for servo tuning and analysis, and an ActiveX Tool Kit speed system development.  In addition, Galil offers servo motors and amplifiers to complement its line of controllers.

Since their introduction of the first microprocessor-based motion controller in 1983, Galil has remained the industry’s leading innovator.  Galil’s unparalleled array of motion controllers – for both stepper and servo motors – is backed by superior technical support and can accommodate the most demanding applications – with absolute precision.

Over 500,000 controllers sold worldwide!

Applied Motion Products’ ST-5 Stepper Drive March 1, 2016

Applied Motion Products ST5 Stepper Driver

Applied Motion Products ST5 Stepper Driver

Basic step and direction drives for powering step motors abound in the marketplace, and it takes dedication to set our drives apart from the pack. We do this by developing innovative control solutions that make step motors perform better (faster, quieter, smoother, more accurately, and with more torque), without breaking the budget. We also differentiate our product line by offering drives that are smarter than basic drives. This article touches on a smarter class of step motor drives, including the popular ST5-S stepper drive, that can be controlled by higher level streaming commands.

Basic Step Motor Drives

Step and direction drives are the perfect choice for many applications because readily available machine controllers – like PLCs, motion controllers, indexers, and PCs – can generate the digital step (pulse) and direction signals necessary to control the motion of the motor. However, care must be taken to select a controller with a digital output specification of 2 MHz or higher if using microstepping, and depending on the controller selected, generating the code to create the motion profiles can be time consuming.

Beyond Basic Drives

For many other applications, a drive that can accept higher level commands via a permanent serial connection – such as RS-232, RS-485 or Ethernet – provides another option for system designers who prefer not to mess with coding up the motion profiles and would prefer instead to rely on the smart step motor drive to generate the profiles internally. In this scenario the designer provides high level commands to the drive that describe the parameters of the motion profile, i.e. acceleration, deceleration, constant velocity, and distance or position, and the drive takes care of generating the necessary pulses and controlling the motion of the step motor. This approach, commonly referred to as “streaming commands”, frees up programming time, reduces discrete I/O count, and potentially alleviates a lot of headaches.

Sample Higher Level Command Sequence

Below is a typical sequence of higher level commands for an Applied Motion drive. This sequence includes one command for each parameter of the motion profile: acceleration rate, deceleration rate, velocity, and distance traveled. At the end of the sequence a single command initiates the defined motion from the motor.

AC100 Set acceleration rate to 100 rev/sec/sec
DE100 Set deceleration rate to 100 rev/sec/sec
VE5.5 Set motor velocity to 5.5 rev/sec
DI10000 Set move distance to 10,000 steps
FL Initiate an incremental positioning movement (AKA Feed to Length)
The ST5-S Stepper Drive

The ST5-S stepper drive is a prime example of a smart step motor drive that provides this higher level capability via streaming commands. The ST5-S provides up to 5.0 amps/phase to drive 2-phase step motors from the small size NEMA 11 up to the large size NEMA 34. It has an attractive list price and is ready to ship from our warehouse in California.

For applications requiring more torque with bigger motors check out the ST10-S stepper drive.
