Compact drive for stepper motor control

Compact drive for stepper motor control
Complex CNC applications, according to B&R Automation, are increasingly implementing stepper motor technology. In addition, more and more pneumatic systems are being replaced by electrical drives. ACOPOSmicro - an extremely compact drive for operating stepper and servo motors in the lower performance range - provides an innovative solution.

At only 63 mm wide, it saves cabinet space. An 80V DC model is available in order to achieve higher torque at high speeds. The performance ranges between 50W and 1kW. Powerlink and the X2X remote backplane are onboard as fieldbus interfaces. A clever cooling design makes side and back wall mounting possible. Cold plate mounting with oil or water cooling is available in addition to wall and feed-through mounting. This cooling design reduces costs by eliminating the need to carry out additional work for climate-control and the related service tasks. 

Using standardised PLCopen motion control function blocks and CNC robotics libraries, all motor types supported by ACOPOSmicro can be controlled via B&R Automation Studio software without problems. The company says ACOPOSmicro provides an ideal solution for use in the semiconductor, packaging, textile and printing industries.
