The TMCM-1060 is an intelligent stepper motor controller/driver module using the new outstanding coolStep™ technology for sensorless load dependent current control

This is a single axis controller/driver 2.8A/48V, coolStep™, motor mountable (NEMA23/24) that allows for the first time an energy efficient operation of an open-loop stepper motor system. With the advanced stallGuard2™ feature the load of the motor can be detected with high resolution.

The module is designed to be mounted directly on a 57mm or 60mm flange QMot stepper motor. The module converts the motor into a compact mechatronic device with bus oriented or stand-alone control where the motor, switches, power and the multi purpose I/Os can be connected with small pluggable connectors.

The TMCM-1060 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. The TMCM-1060 can be controlled using a serial interface and communication traffic is kept very low since all time critical operations, e.g. ramp calculation are performed onboard. The TMCL™ programme can be stored in the on board EEPROM for stand-alone operation and the firmware of the module can be updated via the serial interface. Optional there is available CANopen firmware.
The main features of the module are: up to 256 times microstepping 51200 pos./rev (1,8° step motor), memory for 2048 TMCL™ commands and automatic ramp generation. There is on the fly alteration of motion parameters (e.g. position, velocity, acceleration), spreadCycle™ chopper for improved smoothness and high speed operation and microPlyer™ internal microstep multiplier (16 to 256 µSteps) for lower frequency on step input.
