Speak Motion Control

To set up your Trinamic product and tune the parameters, the TMCL-IDE is the quickest way to go. Whether it’s an evaluation board or TMCM module, simply connect motors and a computer, start the TMCL-IDE and with a few clicks the motor is running. You can now evaluate product features without writing a single line of code.

 

 

TMCL-IDE

Short for Trinamic Motion Control Language - Integrated Development Environment, the TMCL-IDE is an integrated development environment made for developing applications using Trinamic modules and chips. The graphical user interface provides tools for easily setting parameters, for visualizing data in real-time, and for developing and debugging stand-alone applications with TMCL™.

 

 

“The TMCL is a really flexible language, which is a key point if you want to develop something in a short timeline and still be flexible. That’s really important for us because it allows you to try out one solution and, if you find out it’s not the right solution, you can easily change and adapt the behavior of the components since it’s not hard-coded.” Jonathan Aubert, Electronic Engineer at Andrew Alliance

Free and Easy to Use

Trinamic's free and easy to use graphical user interface is perfect for developing applications based on Trinamic's industry-leading solutions. The flexible integrated development environment has a Wizard to guide you and supports the use of commands in direct mode, monitors real-time behavior visualized in graphs, and logs and stores data. All settings can quickly be exported for your own firmware project. Dedicated to motion control, the development program allows you to use simple commands for positioning and setting all relevant parameters of the motion controller to accelerate firmware and application development.

Supporting Popular Interfaces

Various interfaces can be used to connect a Trinamic module or evaluation board, including USB, RS232, RS485, CAN, and Trinamic's Real-Time Monitoring Interface (RTMI). If the product has a USB interface, it can be connected directly via USB. The IDE will automatically recognize the product. Modules equipped with RS232, RS485, or CAN interface require the corresponding interface to be installed on the PC, for which many standard off-the-shelf interfaces can be used. Lastly, some products support the RTMI interface which allows for real-time monitoring and on-the-fly debugging, requiring the USB-2-RTMI adapter.
