The ASIxxx series can be used as actuators or auxiliary axes for numerous machine designs and applications. In conjunction with the vendor’s KL2531 and KL2541 stepper motor I/O Bus Terminals and TwinCat automation software, axes can be easily and cost-effectively integrated into any stepper application, says the vendor, without the need for remote amplifiers. This approach requires fewer components, reducing installation costs.
Stepper Motors Replace Servos
Billed as a cost-effective alternative to servo motors in the small- and medium-capacity range, ASIxxx stepper motors offer nominal current ratings from 1A to 5A, and torques ranging from 0.38Nm to 5Nm.
