Mclennan is delighted to act as stocking distributor and sales partner (UK, Ireland, and France) for the full range of Integrated StepServo Motors 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 TSM17Q-1RG integrated step servo is a drive+motor unit, fusing a NEMA 17 step motor and a servo drive into a single device. Power to the drive, located at the rear of the motor, must be supplied by an external DC supply. See Related and Recommended Products below for compatible 24 and 48 volt DC power supplies.
Step Servo technology combines the high torque capabilities of a step motor with the closed loop dynamic control of a servo system. The result is a highly customizable all-in-one motion control solution that operates quietly and efficiently, requiring only the minimum amount of current to maintain commanded position and velocity. Boost torque of 25-50% higher than the rated holding torque that is available from this integrated Step Servo motor increases the limits of acceleration, leading to faster cycle times. With software selectable servo loops that have been pre-tuned for various inertial loads, the TSM step servo can be applied in systems where a traditional stepper would not be capable of achieving the high accuracy required.
The TSM17Q-1RG integrated step servo can be operated in several different control modes, including Streaming Command mode using either SCL or Modbus/RTU, Pulse & Direction mode, and Velocity mode, plus it has the ability to run a Q program stored in non-volatile memory. Q programs are created using Applied Motion’s Q Programmer™ software, which provides powerful commands for motion, I/O, conditional processing, multi-tasking, math functions, and more. All TSM17 units are setup, configured and tuned using Applied Motion’s Step Servo Quick Tuner software with built in Q Programmer.
Each TSM17 integrated stepper comes with 8 digital inputs, 4 digital output, and 1 analog input. The digital inputs accept signals of 5-24 VDC and can be used for connecting pulse & direction signals, end-of-travel limit switches, jog switches, quadrature encoder signals, PLC outputs, sensors, or many other signal types. The digital outputS can be connected to PLC inputs, counters, lights, relays, or other devices. The analog input accepts 0-5 VDC signals and can be used for velocity and position control.
The TSM17Q-1RG comes with an RS-485 port for programming and serial communications to allow for the use either Modbus/RTU or Applied Motion’s Streaming Command Language (SCL). An integral 5000-line (20,000 count/rev) incremental encoder is housed inside the same enclosure as the drive electronics and used for closed-loop servo control to attain highly accurate position and velocity control. Encoder counts can be accessed over the network or from within the Q program using SCL registers.
