The DM224i-EDN microstepping drive is equipped with a DeviceNet(reg) network interface. The drive is capable of 3A per phase at 48V, and can produce holding torque up to 350 oz-inches when mated with MST high-torque step motors. The DM224i-EDN eliminates the need for indexers or motion controllers in many applications because it accepts direct, high-level digital commands from the machine controller via DeviceNet. Features include automatic mid-band stabilization and microstep to full step switching.
