Modules

TMCM-1278 is an easy-to-use, high-power, single axis smart stepper motor driver module. The module with special housing enclosure is primarily designed for NEMA23/24 size stepper motors.

This product is controlled and configured via a CAN bus interface and comes with two firmware options – TMCL and CANopen. TMCM-1278 features StealthChop™ for absolute silent motor control, SpreadCycle™ for high speed stepper motor commutation, a fully integrated hardware motion controller with SixPoint™ motion ramps, as well as StallGuard2™ and CoolStep™.

All you need to get started is a power supply and Trinamic's free and easy to use TMCL-IDE. This graphical user interface allows quick setup and supports the use of commands in direct mode, monitors real-time behavior visualized in graphs, and logs and stores data.
