Nippon Pulse (www.nipponpulse.com) has proudly announced that release of its latest motion control product that has the capability to control two-phase bipolar stepper motors. With an integrated driver, the FMC32 control board is a compact controller that is fitted with LSI PCD2112 chip, making it suitable for controlling a serial bus.
With a built-in CPU, the FMC32 board also has the ability to register up to 256 steps as well as up to 32 operation patterns in an execution sequence in the internal memory of the board. Eliminating the need for an external PC, the FMC32 automatically processes those sequences and patterns. With the help of the built-in CPU, users can easily repeat the execution sequence automatically.
In addition, users can utilize a USB-to-4-wire serial conversion to simplify the writing as well as the saving of patterns and the execution of sequences to the board’s non-volatile memory.
Aside from the PCD2112 serial bus control chip, the FMC32 control board is also equipped with a NP3775E3 driver chip. The chip enables the board to drive a motor in both half-step and full-step execution modes.
Nippon Pulse’s FMC32 control board offers other features including a maximum current of 1.2 A, an input voltage of DC 24 V, a maximum output pulse frequency of 2.4 Mpps and two different operational modes, which are the stand-alone control mode and the PC control mode.
