Integrated IP65 Stepper Motors from Applied Motion Products
Electromate Inc. Posted 11/19/2016
SWM integrated steppers from Applied Motion Products Inc. are IP65 rated drive+motor units, fusing step motor and drive components into a single splash proof and dustproof device. This space-saving design eliminates wiring and saves on cost over conventional motor and drive solutions.
The SWM24 integrated steppers combine high torque NEMA 24 step motors with a sophisticated, 6.0 A/phase (peak-of-sine) step motor drive. Power to the drive, located at the rear of the motor, must be supplied by an external DC supply. Applied Motion offers compatible 24 and 48 volt DC power supplies for exactly this purpose.
All SWM24 integrated steppers are RoHS and CE compliant. Features include:
- Rated IP65 for wet and dusty environments
- M12 connectors
- Torque ripple smoothing
- Microstep emulation
- NEMA 24 frame size
- Stored programming option for stand-alone operation
- Step direction, velocity and streaming command control modes
- RS-232, Ethernet and EtherNet/IP Communication options
- Modbus/RTU for easy communication with PLC or HMI
- Built-in incremental encoder
