Stepper Drive / Controller

A family of integrated, multi-axis motion controllers, the ACR7000 continues the success of the 9000 and IPA, with new, streamlined low power hardware solutions.

  • 800MHz ARM(R) Cortex(R)-A8 processor
  • Ethernet communications supports PC and I/O communications
  • High performance servo and stepper drive variants
  • 24-48VDC input power
  • Utilizes proven, powerful AcroBasic motion control
  • Servo drives rated to 8A continuous, stepper drives to 4A

Stepnet Plus TEL is a high-performance DC powered microstepping drive for control of hybrid stepping motors via EtherCAT using the CAN Application protocol for EtherCAT (CoE). Microstepping modes are Profile Position, Interpolated Position Mode (PVT), and Homing. With encoder feedback, the TEL can operate a stepper as a brushless servo motor, enabling Cyclic Sync Position/Velocity/ Torque operation.

As well as operating on EtherCAT networks, the TEL also supports the following traditional control modes: step/direction, RS-232 ASCII, master encoder for gearing and camming, digital input commands to initiate predetermined motion sequences.

Drive commissioning is fast and simple using CME 2™ software operating under Windows® and communicating with the TEL via RS-232 or an EtherCAT network.

Feedback from incremental and absolute encoders is supported. A multi-mode encoder port functions as an input or output depending on the drive’s basic setup. As an input it takes feedback from a secondary encoder to create a dual-loop position control system or as a master encoder for driving a cam table.
