ec7nem806a-LApplied Motion Products introduced its ST5-Q stepper drive that provides stand-alone operation and is programmed with the Q programming environment which delivers register manipulation, conditional processing, math functions, multi-tasking and HMI compatibility. The drive delivers up to 5.0A with 24V DC to 48V DC input, and it provides eight digital inputs, four digital outputs and two analog inputs. Self-test and auto setup features measure and configure motor parameters automatically, while anti-resonance technology eliminates mid-range instability for higher motor speeds and fuller use of available torque. Demand signal smoothing reduces extraneous system resonances for smoother motor performance and reduced wear on mechanical components. Torque ripple smoothing adjusts the current waveform to reduce low speed torque ripple for smooth motion at low motor speeds.
