HAMBURG, Germany--Trinamic Motion Control GmbH & Co. KG, a leading supplier of semiconductors, electronics and mechatronic solutions in the fields of motor and motion control, is proud to announce the arrival of a new family of PANdrive smart motors. The PD42-1070 family was developed specifically to simplify the application of advanced power control technology.
The new stepper motors meet NEMA16 standards and will feature amplifiers preconfigured for the motor types and controlled via step and direction signals. By default, all amplifiers will include the silent PWM control mode stealthChop™, and a microPlyer™, which transforms a starting microstep resolution of 16-microsteps-per- full-step into a sinusoidal power curve with 256 microsteps.
Trinamic will present the drives to the public at Electronica 2016, in Hall A4 at booth 513.
"Developers are under increasing pressure to shorten development cycles and bring new products on the market faster", explains Michael Randt, founder and CEO of Trinamic. "The new family of drives has been specially developed with this in mind, in order to make the development process faster, simpler and safer than ever."
Motors with integrated control systems starkly simplify product design, especially for applications that are already outfitted with step and direction output controls, e.g. 3D printers and small desktop CNCs. The thermally optimized and tested electronics housing allows a compact and cost-effective device design.
Drives with a holding torque of 0.27 to 0.29 Nm are available now at a suggested retail price of USD 100. Matching cable kits are also available to help accelerate development. The drives are immediately usable upon delivery, but if necessary, can be configured for application via a UART interface with the free TMCL-IDE.
Trinamic, headquartered in Hamburg, provides integrated circuits and motor control modules to customers worldwide. The company's application-driven approach and in-depth understanding of their customers' needs allow them to offer solutions which simplify and shorten the design phase, resulting in significant cost savings, decreased resource allocation and a reduced total cost of ownership. Trinamic customers benefit from the company's rich expertise in motor physics and extensive portfolio of intellectual property (IP) acquired through many years of applied experience and success. Product development at Trinamic focuses entirely on miniaturizing form factor, increasing efficiency and maximizing the safety and reliability of their products and, thereby, the systems in which they're used.
Over 20 years of experience and a traditional German ownership structure with private shareholders ensure the long-term availability of their products and components.
From the headquarters in Hamburg, Germany, Trinamic products are sold via a worldwide distribution network.
