Intelligent stepper is ATEX certified
Applied Motion Products (AMP) has released a variant of its STAC6 series micro-stepping drive for high performance motion control that has international certification for hazardous area use. Available with full support from Mclennan, the drive is aimed at machine automation applications in oil and gas, mining, printing and other industries where ATEX, IEC-Ex or UL certification is required.
The drive, designated STAC6-Q-H, specifically covers ATEX and IEC-Ex certification for Class I, Zone 2 locations and UL certification for Class 1, Div 2, Group C and D locations. These hazardous areas are characterised such that flammable gases, vapours or liquids are not likely to occur in normal operation but, if they do occur, will only persist for a short period of time.
The panel mounted STAC6-Q-H includes an integrated intelligent drive with RS-232 and RS-485 comms and offers motion control configuration options that include step and direction, analogue voltage, PC or PLC host control, as well as standalone multitasking programmable control. With its direct-on-line AC power and programmable output current, the drive will suit medium-to-large sized hazardous area stepper motors.
