The TMCM-163-42 is a controller / driver module for general brushless DC motor applications. It integrates velocity and torque control as well as a hall sensor based positioning mode. The position resolution depends on the motor, i.e. a standard 8 pole motor gives a motor axis resolution of 15 degrees. The module can be used in stand alone operation (analog voltage) or remote controlled (TMCL) via a RS232 or RS485 interface (ordering option). Its small form factor (42 x 42 x 20 mm³) allows for mounting directly on a motor (NEMA 17 mounting holes - new V2 version only).
