Built for two-phase bipolar stepper motors, it integrates motion control to speed transfer time, reduce solution size and save energy
Enabling two-phase bipolar stepper motors in robotics and automation equipment is the new low-power TMCM-1321 single-axis controller/driver module with integrated motion control.
Small in size (three times smaller as compared to conventional stepper motor solutions), the TMCM-1321 is built to optimise speed and synchronisation of axes for quicker throughput while also reducing power loss by 75 per cent. It features an onboard magnetic encoder and digital inputs for an optical encoder to simplify servo control for advanced feedback and diagnostics.
The TMCM-1321 module has linear ramping, Trinamic SixPoint ramping, as well as advanced S-shaped ramping to speed effective transfer time. Together with an RS-485 interface and Trinamic’s integrated development environment, the TMCM-1321 module simplifies design.
- Reduced Power: Trinamic closed-loop technology provides best-in-class power savings when compared to similar stepper motor solutions.
- Increased Productivity: Improve effective transfer time by implementing the ramping profile that matches the application’s demands.
- Small Solution Size: The TMCM-1321 module, together with magnetic encoder and digital ABN inputs, provides the smallest single-axis servo controller/driver solution size of 784 mm2.
The module is now available from TRINAMIC Motion Control GmbH & Co.
