Fully packaged intelligent drive is in the box seat

Fully packaged intelligent drive is in the box seat
Mclennan has launched a new intelligent microstepping drive aimed at simplifying both the selection and installation of motion control for single axis applications in industry or research. The PosiStep is supplied as a plug and play package in a smart extruded aluminium enclosure for desktop mounting, complete with a 120/240V AC, 50/60Hz power supply. 

With a colour coded connector scheme and optional cable sets for stepper motor, I/O, communications, limit switches and optional encoder feedback, users simply hook up their system and program motion and I/O sequencing from a computer in a choice of user-friendly graphical or advanced ASCII command sets. The PosiStep is available with 5A or 10A output current and for optimum performance, and even more simplified installation, can be supplied with matching microstepping motors from Mclennan's connectorised HT series.

The new PosiStep drive is based on the ST range of intelligent microstepping drives from Mclennan's distribution partner Applied Motion Products (AMP). The DSP based ST range has been well proven over many applications with sophisticated drive features such as  advanced current control and anti-resonance for improved speeds and smoother motion. In addition, the ST has a choice of user program levels from simple to complex motion programming for single and multi axis use as well as diagnostic and configuration software for straightforward set-up. The decision to combine this powerful component into the PosiStep package was developed through the requests of several customers who preferred to purchase a single integrated solution rather than individually purchase and interface the ST with all of the component parts for their machine automation systems. 

The PosiStep includes a selectable microstepping resolution up to 50800 steps/rev. On start-up, AMP's ST Configurator software is used to self test and auto setup the motion axis for optimal performance
