High performance in a quiet package
This system's NEMA17 high-torque, brushless motor design uses innovative techniques to control current flow through the motor, reducing resonance throughout the MDrive's speed range and making it quieter. It can take a broad input voltage range from +12 to +48 V dc. It runs at an extended operating range of -40 to 85C, and its general purpose I/O, running to +24 Volts, has been expanded from 4 to 8. The MDrive17 has a full-featured, easy-to-program instruction set, a 10-bit analog input, 0-5 MHz step clock rate, and 20 microstep resolutions up to 51,200 steps per revolution. Expanded features make electronic gearing possible with an output clock generated fixed to the internal step clock, or by following a rotary or linear axis at an electronically controlled ratio. Options and accessories include a long life linear actuator; encoders; integrated planetary generator; control knob and linear slide.
