Beckhoff Automation: Enhanced stepper control

The new Beckhoff KL2531 and KL2541 stepper motion terminals are a compact and cost-effective I/O alternative to traditional stepper controls. These advanced drive technology Bus Terminals integrate a compact motion control solution for small stepper motors to 200 W, eliminating the need for remote amplifiers.

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.
