Servo2Go-Logo

Greenville, DE –— The Motion Control STAC5 microstepping drive provides up to 5 amps per phase from a high bus voltage with sophisticated current control, delivering high torque over a board range of speeds. An advanced anti-resonance algorithm with electronic damping allows for maximum torque utilization and fast settling times.

The STAC5 microstepping drive is available in 120VAC and 220VAC versions, both housed in a compact package.

Applied Motion’s powerful stepper drive costs the same as a competitors drive without a built-in power supply, and features……

  • High performance
  • Built-in power supply & regeneration clamp
  • 120 and 220 VAC models
  • Accepts pulse & direction, streaming commands, stored programming
  • 10/100 MBit Ethernet & EtherNet/IP
  • Advanced anti-resonance
  • Matching high performance motors

All Motion Control STAC5 models include 100Mbit Ethernet communication. The Ethernet interface is used to configure the STAC5 and motor, and also supports the SCL and Q languages over standard Ethernet cabling, addressing and protocols.There are 3 control options available with the STAC5 stepper drives: S, Q and IP.

T• “S” drives can operate in pulse & direction, velocity, and streaming serial (SCL) control modes. To select the control mode, as well as to setup the motor and configure other drive parameters, use the ST Configurator™ software.

• “Q” drives can operate in all of the same control modes as an S drive, plus they have the ability to run stand-alone Q programs stored in non-volatile memory. Q programs are created using the Q Programmer™ software, which provides multi-tasking, math functions, conditional processing, data register manipulation, and more features in a robust yet simple text-based programming language. Like S drives, Q drives must first be setup and configured using the ST Configurator™ software.

• “IP” drives come with built-in EtherNet/IP network communications, the widely used industrial protocol for manufacturing automation applications. With EtherNet/IP users can control, configure and query the drive using an open, standards-based, industrial Ethernet connection at speeds up to 100 MBits/sec. The STAC5-IP drives run all of the same control modes as STAC5-Q drives, with the addition that all drive features can be accessed over EtherNet/IP, including more than 100 commands and 130 registers for controlling motion, I/O, configuration, polling, math, register manipulation, and Q programming. STAC5-IP drives are setup and configured using ST Configurator™, and Q programs are created using Q Programmer™.

An encoder feedback option provides position verification, stall detection and/or stall prevention. Applied Motion’s proprietary stall prevention algorithm monitors rotor lag and automatically reduces speed or acceleration to avoid motor stalls, allowing 100% torque utilization. high torque. These are three-phase brushless motors with hall signals for commutation and velocity loop feedback.

The STAC5 can be purchased with a wide range of high torque step motors, optimized for use with the drive. Three lengths of HT23 are available in single and double shaft configurations: HT23-552, HT23-553 and HT23-554, with holding torque ranging from 84 to 255 ounce-inches. Three lengths of HT34 are also available in single and double shaft configurations: HT34-495, HT34-496 and HT34-497, with holding torque ranging from 550 to 1700 ounce-inches.

Motion Control – Closed-Loop Integrated Stepper Motors feature magnetic or absolute encoder feedback Available from Electromate!

Motion Control - Electromate offers JVL Closed Loop Integrated Steppers

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

 

 

Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components — JVL presents a new innovative closed-loop stepper motor technology for its NEMA 23 & 34 integrated stepper motor range from 0,1 to 12 Nm. JVL, the European leader in the development of integrated servo and stepper motor technology, has now again developed a new and unique product in the field of integrated motor control.

New Innovative Technology

JVL closed-loop integrated stepper motors, QuickStep®, provide higher torque, faster acceleration, torque control, stall free operation and quieter movements than traditional step motor systems. QuickStep do this with greater efficiency and less motor heating because motor phase current are regulated up and down according to need. Performance of JVL closed-loop steppers are similar to servo motors, but with higher torque and often without need of gearbox, resulting in a more inexpensive solution. Design safety factors have always been high for stepper motors to ensure stall-free operation – now with QuickStep closed-loop control design can be very close to the limit resulting in even lower costs. QuickStep is a true closed-loop control system that compensates step angle errors during a movement and correct errors within a full step. If load becomes too high speed is lowered and position errors will always stay within two full-steps. Smart digital design and very high update rates (36 MHz) means there is no need of any manual adjustment or setup. It works like a perfect stepper motor benefitting from the servo motor technology.

Advantages compared to open loop stepper motors

  • Position feedback and control
  • Fast and easy commissioning. No tuning needed
  • No stalling. No step losses at all
  • Torque control
  • Much faster positioning and more cycles per second
  • Increased efficiency and thereby much lower temperature
  • Shorter settling time
  • Controls higher inertias than open loop steppers
  • Higher load tolerance
  • More quiet operation (lower acoustic noise)
  • Longer lifetime due to lower temperature
  • Correct positioning without overshoot and oscillation

Advantages compared to servo motors

  • Very high Torque at low speed. Often 3-4 times higher in same motor flange size
  • Very high ratio-of-inertia, often up to 40:1
  • Faster commissioning. No tuning needed
  • Lower price. Same price as open loop steppers
  • Totally stiff at standstill. Full holding torque
  • Direct drive without gearbox (better and more precise torque control)
  • Correct positioning without overshoot
  • No oscillation
  • Very short settling time

Benefit in these application from closed-loop stepper motors

  • Multiple axis applications (RS485, CANopen)
  • Industrial Ethernet: Profinet, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, Powerlink, Modbus TCP, SERCOS III
  • Magnetic or Absolute Encoder Feedback
  • Positioning tasks with load changes
  • Applications that require quiet operation, short settling times and precision positioning

Applications include

  • Winding applications
  • Belt drives (start/stop, positioning)
  • Dosing pumps and filler systems
  • Semi-conductor mounting
  • Wafer production
  • Textile machines and industrial sewing machines
  • Robotics
  • Testing and inspection systems
