AutomationDirect has added integrated motors and drives to its SureStep line of stepper motion control products. Integrated stepper motor/drives save panel space, require less wiring and are less expensive.
The new SureStep integrated drive/motor units 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. Standard motor/drives and advanced motor/drives are available. Existing SureStep systems require four components including power supply, stepper drive, motor extension cable, and motor.
SureStep advanced integrated motor/drives have available torque from 54 to 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 to 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 setup the drive, including drive, motion control mode, I/O, and motor. A Status Monitor screen aids in troubleshooting alarms and faults.
SureStep integrated motor/drives start at $97.00.
