Programmable Stepper Drives for Stand-Alone Operation
Applied Motion Products introduced its ST5-Si stepper drives that are programmable for stand-alone operation with proprietary Si Programmer Windows-based software with integrated tuning. A graphical point-and-click format combines motion, I/O and operator interface functionality for simple machine sequencing. These drives deliver 24V DC to 48V DC with output current from 0.5A to 5.0A. They protect against over-voltage, under-voltage, over-temp and external output shorts, and they provide eight digital inputs and four digital outputs. Option boards are available to add encoder feedback and RS485 functionality. The encoder feedback option board delivers motor stall detection, stall prevention and position maintenance.
