LIN Engineering, represented by Switches Plus Components , has announced the newest addition to its line of integrated step motor/driver/controllers.
The SilverPak 17T is a bipolar, 1.8 degree, NEMA 17 step motor integrated with a microstepping driver and intelligent controller all in one sleek, compact unit.
By eliminating the need for external equipment, it provides easy system integration for newly designed applications. Additional benefits of the SilverPak 17T are its affordable cost, smooth motion capabilities, and RoHS compliant versions which are available upon request.
The SilverPak 17T is available in body lengths of 2.76", 2.99", and 3.31" and is capable of producing up to 85 oz-in of holding torque, depending on the stack size of the motor. Custom windings are available at no extra cost in order to maximise torque at your desired speed.
The SilverPak 17T features output currents of 0.1 to 1.5 Amps peak, input voltage of 7V dc to 28V dc, and 16kB of on-board memory.
There are two digital limit switches, one general purpose input that allows for manual positioning of the motor and one open collector output capable of outputting 100mA.
Once programmed, the SilverPak 17T is capable of stand-alone operation with no connection to a PC and there is low power dissipation, so no heat sink is required.
The SilverPak 17T also eliminates the need for an encoder with its stall detection feature, StallGuard.
