Step Motor Controller/Driver Nixes Additional Heatsinking

The SMC-32 stepping motor controller/driver can control four-, six-, or eight-lead, two/four-phase stepping motors with currents up to 3 A per phase. Measuring only 4 by 3.75 by 1.5 in., the unit requires no additional heatsinking. It also integrates overcurrent and overtemperature protection. The unit provides ministepping capability and manual jog inputs. It's expandable for multi-axis motion control applications. The SMC-32 can be customized for specific applications. In small quantities, the module costs $275. Volume discounts are available.
