The PANdrive PD57-1060 and PD60-1060 are 57mm and 60mm stepper motors integrated with a controller/driver having coolStep™ and sensOstep™ encoders

The PD57-1060 and PD60-1060 PANdrive™ family is a full mechatronic solution which includes a high torque stepper motor and a motion controller/driver using the new outstanding coolStep™ technology for sensorless load dependent current control. This allows the first time an energy efficient operation of an open-loop stepper motor system.

Trinamic PD57-1060 PD60-1060Furthermore with the advanced stallGuard2™ feature the load of the motor can be detected with high resolution. The PANdrive™ can be controlled via USB, CAN or RS485 serial interface or by simple Step-/Direction signals. The power supply, interface and the multi purpose I/Os can be connected with JST connectors.

The new spreadCycle™ chopper allows highest smoothness and high speed operation and the internal sensOstep™ encoder can be used to detect step loss or to control the target position. It comes with the PC based software development environment TMCL-IDE for the Trinamic Motion Control Language (TMCL™).

Using predefined TMCL™ high level commands like ‘move to position’ or ‘constant rotation’ a rapid and fast development of motion control applications is guaranteed. Communication traffic is kept very low since all time critical operations, e.g. ramp calculation are performed on board.

The TMCL™ programme can be stored in the on board EEPROM for stand-alone operation. The firmware of the module can be updated via the serial interface. Optional there is available CANopen firmware.
