Applied Motion Products: Motor/drive with Ethernet

Six new STM24 integrated drive+motors with 100 MBit Ethernet from Applied Motion Products provide 60% more torque than size 23 motors but still mount like a NEMA23.

Connecting to an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix, CompactLogix or MicroLogix PLC?  EtherNet/IP is also available. 

All STM24 models provide 340 ounce inches of torque and are available with an optional 4000 count/rev optical encoder, safely housed inside, that can detect and prevent motor stalls using Applied Motion's proprietary stall prevention algorithm. Auto tuned digital current control provides smooth, quiet motion, while an advanced anti-resonance algorithm with electronic damping allows for maximum torque utilization, rapid acceleration, and fast settling times. 

Software applications can communicate with the STM24 in real time, using the SCL and Q languages over standard 100 megabit Ethernet cabling, addressing and protocols.  Ethernet can transmit data at 100 times the speed of CANopen and more than 1000 times faster than RS-232 and RS-485.  The number and types of devices that can share a network are practically unlimited.

Even if users are just programming a Q drive for standalone operation, the Ethernet option can be more convenient than a USB-serial converter.  Just plug the drive into the office network, and install free, easy to use software, to be ready for programming and configuration.
