DC EtherNet/IP Advanced Microstep Drive
Mclennan is delighted to act as stocking distributor and sales partner (UK, Ireland, and France) for the full range of Stepper Drives offered by Applied Motion Products from the USA. We hold many models in stock for immediate delivery and any motor from Applied Motion Products can be obtained on short lead times. For more information contact our Sales and Applications Engineering team.
The ST10-IP-EN stepper drive is a DC-powered microstepping drive for controlling two-phase, bipolar step motors. It offers advanced current control and a sophisticated 3rd generation anti-resonance algorithm that electronically dampens motor and system resonances to improve motor smoothness and usable torque over a wide speed range. The drive also employs electronic torque ripple smoothing and microstep emulation to greatly reduce motor noise and vibration. The drive must be powered from 24-80 VDC and can output up to 10.0 A/phase (peak-of-sine) to the step motor. Over-voltage, over-temperature and over-current protection features prevent damage while running in adverse conditions. The drive is complemented by a specifically matched set of NEMA 23 and NEMA 34 frame stepper motors (see Related and Recommended products below).
The ST10-IP-EN incorporates 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 ST-IP drives run all of the same control modes as ST-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.
For connecting to external devices such as control signals, incremental encoders, limit switches, proximity or photoelectric sensors, PLC I/O, lamps, and other devices, the drive comes with 8 digital inputs, 4 digital outputs, and 2 single-ended analog inputs (analog inputs can be wired together as 1 differential analog input). Adjustable digital filters are present on the digital inputs for enhanced reliability in noisy environments. In addition to EtherNet/IP the drive supports Ethernet TCP and UDP protocols for sending commands from Applied Motion’s proprietary Serial Command Language (SCL). The same 10/100 Mbit Ethernet port on the drive is also used for configuring and programming the drive using the ST Configurator™ and Q Programmer™ software applications, respectively. All ST drives are CE approved and RoHS compliant.
