Single-box Stepper Motor Control

July 6, 2010
The EP7041 EtherCat Motion Box enables stepper motor control in a compact, machine-mountable device, without need for a protective control cabinet. 
Well-suited for harsh environments, the compact EtherCat module in protection class IP 67 allows the connection of the vendor’s stepper motors up to 50VDC and 5A. An integrated incremental encoder connection on the EP7041 permits the implementation of a single servo axis. In its compact housing, which measures just 5x1.2x1-in (126x30x26.5mm), the EP7041 contains an encoder connection, two digital inputs for limit switches and a digital output for a brake. In addition to the modules designed for 5A, there is also a 1.5A version (EP7041-1002) for the control of lower power stepper motors. One highlight of the stepper motor module is the 64-fold micro-stepping, designed to ensure a very smooth and precise motor rotation.Beckhoff Automation LLCwww.beckhoffautomation.com952.890.0000
