Integrated stepper motor/drives save panel space, require less wiring and are less expensive than separate units. These motor/drives provide accurate micro-stepping position and speed control for smooth motion and step response and require only two components: power supply and integrated stepper motor/drive. Existing SureStep systems require four components, including power supply, stepper drive, motor extension cable and motor. Standard motor/drives and advanced motor/drives are available. The advanced motor/drives have available torque of 54-340 oz-in and software-selectable resolutions ranging from 200 steps per revolution. The advanced drives can operate with traditional high-speed inputs, but can also be commanded via 0-5 V analog input. An internal indexer can accomplish point-to-point moves controlled via ASCII communication. Free SureMotion Pro drive configuration software is available for advanced integrated motor/drives (not required for standard drives) to easily configure and set up the drive, including drive, motion control mode, I/O and motor. A Status Monitor screen aids in troubleshooting alarms and faults.
