Stepper Motor Controller [&] Driver 6A/48V with USB/CAN/RS485, StealthChop™ (no noise)

The TMCM-1260 is a single axis motor controller/driver board for 2-phase bipolar stepper motors with up-to 6A RMS (8.4A peak) motor coil current. It supports linear ramps and unique SixPoint™ ramps. It offers on-board sensOstep encoder and in addition, support for connection of external (incremental A/B) encoder. For driver-only applications, the TMCM-1260 offers optically isolated Step/Direction inputs.

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.

A CANopen firmware is optionally available.
