Just 12 mm W the KL2531 Bus Terminal is designed for simple integration into a 24 V DC control voltage system. A large number of small drives and axes can be integrated. KL2541 modules offer higher performance comparable to that of small servo drives because with a peak current of 5 A they can generate a torque of 5Nm in conjunction with a standard stepper motor despite being only 24mm W.
