STAC5 – NEW Lower Price for Powerful Microstepping Drive

Press Release from Ltd.

Applied Motion's powerful stepper drive costs the same as a competitors drive without a built-in power supply, and features…       

·         High performance

·         Built-in power supply & regeneration clamp

·         120 and 220 VAC models

·         Accepts pulse & direction, streaming commands, stored programming

·         10/100 MBit Ethernet & EtherNet/IP

·         Advanced anti-resonance

·         Matching high performance motors

The STAC5 provides up to 5 amps per phase from a high bus voltage with sophisticated current control, delivering high torque over a board range of speeds.  An advanced anti-resonance algorithm with electronic damping allows for maximum torque utilization and fast settling times.

The STAC5 is available in 120VAC and 220VAC versions, both housed in a compact package.

All STAC5 models include 100Mbit Ethernet communication.  The Ethernet interface is used to configure the STAC5 and motor, and also supports the SCL and Q languages over standard Ethernet cabling, addressing and protocols.There are 3 control options available with the STAC5 stepper drives: S, Q and IP. 

·         "S" drives can operate in pulse & direction, velocity, and streaming serial (SCL) control modes.  To select the control mode, as well as to setup the motor and configure other drive parameters, use the ST Configurator™ software.

·         "Q" drives can operate in all of the same control modes as an S drive, plus they have the ability to run stand-alone Q programs stored in non-volatile memory.  Q programs are created using the Q Programmer™ software, which provides multi-tasking, math functions, conditional processing, data register manipulation, and more features in a robust yet simple text-based programming language.  Like S drives, Q drives must first be setup and configured using the ST Configurator™ software.

·         "IP" drives come with built-in EtherNet/IP network communications, the widely used industrial protocol for manufacturing automation applications.  With EtherNet/IP users can control, configure and query the drive using an open, standards-based, industrial Ethernet connection at speeds up to 100 MBits/sec.  The STAC5-IP drives run all of the same control modes as STAC5-Q drives, with the addition that all drive features can be accessed over EtherNet/IP, including more than 100 commands and 130 registers for controlling motion, I/O, configuration, polling, math, register manipulation, and Q programming.  STAC5-IP drives are setup and configured using ST Configurator™ , and Q programs are created using Q Programmer™ .

An encoder feedback option provides position verification, stall detection and/or stall prevention.  Applied Motion's proprietary stall prevention algorithm monitors rotor lag and automatically reduces speed or acceleration to avoid motor stalls, allowing 100% torque utilization.

The STAC5 can be purchased with a wide range of high torque step motors, optimized for use with the drive.  Three lengths of HT23 are available in single and double shaft configurations:  HT23-552, HT23-553 and HT23-554 , with holding torque ranging from 84 to 255 ounce-inches.  Three lengths of HT34 are also available in single and double shaft configurations:  HT34-495, HT34-496 and HT34-497 , with holding torque ranging from 550 to 1700 ounce-inches.
