Step Motor Drives Offer CANopen FunctionalityServo2Go has just added new CANopen models to its broad range of programmable stepper motor drive systems from Applied Motion Products. The STAC6 Step Motor Drive has proven itself in demanding applications, delivering up to 1,400 oz-in with AMPs compatible range of low-loss, high performance step motors.   

STAC6 drives are rated at 6A for the 110V version and 3.2A with the 220VAC version.

Adding CANopen allows the drives to be controlled by a CANopen master utilizing the DS301 and DSP402 communications protocols and the CAN 2.0b Passive physical layer. STAC6 drives have seven digital inputs, three digital outputs, and two analog inputs. Encoder feedback is standard. 

All AMPs CANopen compatible drives include Q programmer, Applied Motion’s powerful motion control language. Q programs can be downloaded and stored on the drive and then, using the CANopen network, users can access, modify, and trigger Q programs.
