Hamburg, 17 September 2018 - TRINAMIC Motion Control GmbH & Co. KG, leading manufacturer of chips, embedded and mechatronic solutions for motor and motion control presents the PD57/60-1076 and PD57/60-1276 product families of smart motors with housed electronics.

The drives are equipped with Trinamic’s latest driver technologies like the popular noiseless current-control mode StealthChop, the second generation of the sensorless load detection StallGuard, and the load-dependent current control CoolStep. The PD-1276 additionally comes with a magnetic SensOstep Encoder, which reliably detects step or position loss – even at standstill.

“For more than 15 years Trinamic manufactures smart integrated mechatronic units with the focus on ease of use and fast application development for industries like laboratory automation or special machinery,” explains Trinamic´s CEO and founder Michael Randt. “The products we present today extend the portfolio by rugged drives with high torque.”

As all PANdrives, the new products combine the latest motor control technologies with ease of use and fast implementation. While the PD-1076 family is controlled via simple step/direction signals, the PD-1276 family is equipped with the industry standard CANopen protocol, or alternatively with the TMCL mini-PLC that can execute standalone applications, programmed in the free an easy to use TMCL-IDE.

Designed for a supply voltage of 10V...30V, these PANdrives provide a holding torque of 0.55…3.1Nm. Ensuring the smoothest stepper motor operation possible, these smart motors have a state-of-the-art feature set, including Trinamic’s StealthChop, SpreadCycle, StallGuard2, and CoolStep. As such, these PANdrives allow for precise, smooth applications with reduced noise levels and energy consumption.

The drives are available via distribution from September.

Features and benefits:

  • NEMA23 or NEMA24 stepper motor
  • 0.5…3.1Nm
  • +10…+30V DC supply voltage
  • Up to 3A RMS motor current
  • Up to 256 microsteps per full step
  • StealthChop, SpreadCycle, StallGuard2 and CoolStep
  • UART configuration interface (PD57/60-x-1076)
  • CAN bus interface (PD57/60-x-1276)
  • TMCL or CANopen protocol
