Texas-based AccelMotion’s new DC2M17 Intelligent Motor Module transforms a NEMA17 stepper motor into a compact motion-control subsystem.
AccelMotion created the DC2M17 by integrating a powerful but efficient 2-A 35-V driver with an easy-to-use feature-rich motion controller, configurable general-purpose inputs and outputs, and diagnostic and protective circuits; all of it powered by a single DC supply. It features interoperability with other AccelMotion DC-series controller/drivers allowing up to 32 axes of motion under a single host control, and language compatibility with products from sister company AMS. When attached to a step motor, the resulting motion module reduces wiring and simplifies system layout; it extends the motor length by only 1.18-in. (30 mm) so it fits into tight spaces.
Designed for OEM use, the DC2M17 is priced for integration in equipment destined for laboratory materials handling, packaging, testing, factory automation, and other motion-control applications. An optional aluminum case cover provides protection in tough environments as well as better cooling under highest load.
