Features

  • Programmable phase current, up to 2A max (per phase) continuous
  • Single input supply, from 10 to 40VDC
  • Replaceable motor drive fuse and resetable overcurrent protection for added safety
  • Programmable step resolutions: Full, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16 and 1/32 step
  • Drive step rates from 1/255th to 32,000 steps/second
  • Twelve configurable input ports; generic or fixed-function
    • Fixed functions include Home, Go, Stop, Limits and Jogs
  • Four general-purpose output ports can each drive 1A loads
    • All I/O can be referenced to external voltage from 5 to 36V
  • AM Comms Control bus utilizes RS-485 (TIA-485) standard
  • Readable fault monitoring of temperature, motor voltage, I/O voltage, driver overcurrent, and fuse failure
  • Status LED indicates:
    • Power-good, fuse fault, overcurrent, overvoltage, overtemp, program mode, and step rate
  • Programs and Parameters can be stored in non-volatile internal memory, and a stored program can auto-run at start-up
  • Easy Command Line Interface, with over 41 motion commands and settings compatible with all DC-series controllers
  • Small size allows dense mounting to a chassis or inside industrial equipment
