Stepper Motor Controller & Driver, 2.8A/48V, USB/CAN/RS485/S&D, 60x60mm

The TMCM-1160 is an intelligent stepper motor controller/driver module using the new outstanding CoolStep™ technology for sensorless load dependent current control. This allows the first time an energy efficient operation of an open-loop stepper motor system. With the advanced StallGuard2™ feature the load of the motor can be detected with high resolution.

The module is designed to be mounted directly on a 57mm or 60mm flange QMot stepper motor. It converts the motor into a compact mechatronic device with bus oriented or stand-alone control. The motor, switches, power and the multi purpose I/Os can be connected with small pluggable connectors.

The PC based software development environment TMCL-IDE for the Trinamic Motion Control Language (TMCL™) can be downloaded free of charge from the TRINAMIC website. Predefined high level TMCL commands guarantee a rapid development of motion control applications. Communication traffic is kept very low since all time critical operations, e.g. ramp calculation are performed onboard.

The CANopen firmware option allows the TMCM-1160 to interoperate in a CANopen network.
