Panel Mount Stepper Drives
Panel Mount Stepper Drives
Mclennan is a leading provider of high-performance stepper drives, offering a wide range of solutions for motion control applications across various industries. Stepper drives are essential components of motion control systems, providing accurate and precise control over the movement of stepper motors.
Stepper drives are used in a variety of applications, including robotics, CNC machines, 3D printers, and medical devices. They are designed to control the speed, direction, and position of the motor shaft with high accuracy and repeatability. By controlling the current flow through the motor windings, stepper drives ensure precise and controlled movement.
One of the key advantages of Mclennan stepper drives is their ability to provide reliable and repeatable motion control. They are capable of operating at low speeds and delivering high torque, making them ideal for applications that require precise and controlled movement. Most drives we sell offer microstepping functionality. Mclennan stepper drives are also available in various configurations, including standalone, board-level, and networked drives with fieldbus protocols.
Fieldbuses and Comms
Mclennan's networked drives with fieldbus protocols, such as EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, Profinet, CANopen, and MODBUS TCP, allow for easy integration into existing automation systems. They offer a high degree of flexibility and scalability, allowing users to control multiple drives from a single interface. These networked drives provide high-speed communication with precise timing and synchronization capabilities, ensuring optimal performance and reliability.
