Six integrated drive+motors added to Applied Motion Products’ motion-control line fuse together a high-performance motion controller with 100-Mbit Ethernet communication to a high-torque NEMA24 step motor. The STM24 models offer 340 oz-in. of torque, yet still mount into a NEMA23 motor form factor. An optional, internally housed 400-count/rev optical encoder can detect and prevent motor stalls using the company’s stall-prevention algorithm. Auto-tuned digital current control helps smooth and quiet motion. Control modes include pulse/direction, velocity, streaming commands, and stored programs. An advanced anti-resonance algorithm with electronic damping maximizes torque utilization, rapid acceleration, and fast settling times. Software applications can communicate in with the STM24 in real time using the SCL and Q languages over standard 100-Mbit Ethernet cabling, addressing, and protocols. The unit also can connect to an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix, CompactLogicx, or MicroLogix PLC.
