JVL Industri Elektronik A/S has introduced a new compact and slim stepper motor. The new ServoStep integrated stepper motor series MIS171 to MIS176 features a NEMA 17 42 x 42 mm flange and includes a controller with six different industrial Ethernet protocols, absolute multiturn encoder, closed loop and M12 connectors. This new motor family is based on the latest microprocessor and cooling technology and is an advancement compared to previous designs.
All the necessary electronics in a stepper system are integrated in the motor itself and are similar to the concept used by other JVL motors, making it easy to use in all kinds of motion control stepper or servomotor applications.
The motor contains everything needed to solve modern control tasks, either as a stand-alone unit with a programmable motion controller or controlled from an external PLC or PC. Eight I/O points can be individually configured as digital input, digital output or analog input. Modbus RTU or CANopen provide easy connections to a PLC or HMI. An ActiveX/OCX driver is available for a simple interface to LabView, Excel, VB or other Windows-programs. Up to 254 axes can be connected on the same RS485 bus.
Key features include a Safe Torque Off (STO) input, high resolution to 409,600 count/rev, speed range from 0 to 3,000 in 0.01 rpm steps, a wide supply range from 7 to 72 Vdc and protection class up to IP67. Also, Profinet, EtherCAT, Powerlink, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP or SERCOS III are available and for EtherCAT and SERCOS III synchronization and drive profiles are available.
