The PD57-1060 and PD60-1060 PANdrive™ familly is a full mechatronic solution including a high torque stepper motor and a motion controller/driver using the new outstanding coolStep™ technology for sensorless load dependent current control. This allows the first time an energy efficient operation of an open-loop stepper motor system. With the advanced stallGuard2™ feature the load of the motor can be detected with high resolution.
The PANdrive™ can be controlled via USB, CAN or RS485 serial interface or by simple Step-/Direction signals. The power supply, interface and the multi purpose I/Os can be connected with JST connectors. The new spreadCycle™ chopper allows highest smoothness and high speed operation. The internal sensOstep™ encoder can be used to detect step loss or to control the target position. It 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.
