Stepper Drive/Controller

Tolomatic ACS stepper drive/controller solves connectivity issues in low-cost actuator applications.

January 4, 2012   by Design Engineering Staff

Tolomatic has added Ethernet connectivity to its ACS stepper drive/controller. The component supports both Ethernet/IP and Modbus TCP, allowing easy connectivity to Allen Bradley PLCs and many other PLCs and HMIs. The ACS with Ethernet is capable of commanding motion with immediate move command or preconfigured moves for infinite position capability. Each move has configurable motion profile parameters (position, velocity, acceleration/deceleration, force) that are independent for each move. The Ethernet connectivity also provides additional status and diagnostic information to the control system for monitoring and fault recovery. The ACS comes with a starter kit that includes the configuration software and two setup manuals.
