Fall River, MA — Motion Control Components Application – Worldwide, about 50 to 70 million people are suffering from visual impairment due to disorders of the retina. Adequate treatment is still impossible in many cases. Eye operations are always a big challenge for a surgeon, and steady hands are a key requirement. Surgeries like those for treating a detached retina require extreme precision. And when it comes to precision, human hands can’t hold a candle to robotic systems.

Motion Control – Powerful Microstepping Drive from Servo2Go!

Applied Motion’s powerful stepper drive costs the same as a competitors drive without a built-in power supply!

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.

New Advanced Motion Controller from Steinmeyer!

Steinmeyer FMC200 Controller

Steinmeyer  Logo

BURLINGTON, MA — Steinmeyer, Inc. today announced a small new point to point controller to complement its line of precision linear stages. The new FMC200 series controller offers a compact design that is able to support a wide range of motors including Linear Brushless, DC Brush and Stepper Motors. Up to 3 axes can be controlled from a single unit that measures only 100x100x25 mm. Input power, ranging from 9 to 36 VDC, depends on the motors to be controlled. Open loop as well as closed loop control is possible. Maximum input quadrature encoder frequency is 10 MHz.

The controller is preconfigured for easy installation with an individual configuration file and our simple to use Windows software called FMC Quick Access. With just a few clicks this intuitive software allows you to run start up tests within a couple of minutes!

The new FMC200 series controller comes with a software package that includes LabView libraries. Other libraries such as C++, C#, Visual Basic, Delphi and more are also available. If your application requires a multi axis setup with more than 3 axes, simply connect a second FMC controller via our FMC-Link and add as many ports as needed. Stand alone operation is possible with stored motion sequences. The controller, able to interface with an external joystick and limit switches, also includes extra I/O ports.

The Steinmeyer group is comprised of two manufacturing divisions located in Germany. August Steinmeyer GmbH & Co. KG (located in Albstadt) has been setting standards for high precision ball screws for over 40 years and prides itself on high quality, innovative designs to meet demanding customer requirements. Our Feinmess Dresden (FMD) division has been producing an extensive line of high precision positioning systems for well over 130 years.
