PD-111-42 is obsolete and not recommended for new designs.


The PD-111-42 is a full mechatronic solution including a 42mm flange high torque motor (NEMA17). Its high motor current allows up to 1200 RPM movement and high precision 64 microsteps. The PD-111-42 can be controlled via RS232, RS485, CAN or IIC interface. The power supply, interface and the multi purpose I/Os can be connected with small JST connectors. The PD-111-42 comes with the PC based software development environment TMCL-IDE for the Trinamic Motion Control Language (TMCL™). Using predefined TMCL™ high level commands like „move to position“ or „constant rotation“ a rapid and fast development of motion control applications is guaranteed. Communication traffic is kept very low since all time critical operations, e.g. ramp calculation are performed on board. The TMCL™ program can be stored in the on board EEPROM for stand-alone operation. The firmware of the module can be updated via the serial interface. With the stallGuard™ feature it is possible to detect motor overload or motor stall.
