The TMCM-160 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 RS-232 or RS-485 interface (ordering option). Its small form factor (50 x 92 mm²) allows for integration onto a user board as a plug-on module or for panel mounting, by connecting flat ribbon cables to the two 2x13 2.54mm standard header connectors. Multi-axis drives can be easily realized by integrating multiple modules on one baseboard. A standard baseboard (BB-160) is available.
