ST10-Q-Plus

The ST10-Plus stepper drive is a DC-powered microstepping drive for controlling two-phase, bipolar step motors. It offers advanced current control and a sophisticated 3rd generation anti-resonance algorithm that electronically dampens motor and system resonances to improve motor smoothness and usable torque over a wide speed range. The drive also employs electronic torque ripple smoothing and microstep emulation to greatly reduce motor noise and vibration. The drive must be powered from 24-80 VDC and can output up to 10.0 A/phase (peak-of-sine) to the step motor. Over-voltage, over-temperature and over-current protection features prevent damage while running in adverse conditions. The drive is complemented by a specifically matched set of NEMA 23 and NEMA 34 frame stepper motors.


The ST10-Plus can operate in all of the same control modes as the S model (pulse & direction, velocity, streaming commands, SiNet Hub operation), plus it has the ability to run stand-alone Q programs stored in non-volatile memory. Q programs are created using the Q Programmer™ software, which provides multi-tasking, math functions, conditional processing, data register manipulation, and more features in a robust yet simple text-based programming language. The drive is setup and configured using Applied Motion’s ST Configurator™ software. Preconfigured motor setup files included with ST Configurator™ make it easy to set up the drive for optimum results.


For connecting to external devices such as step & direction control signals, incremental encoders, limit switches, proximity or photoelectric sensors, PLC I/O, lamps, and other devices, the drive comes with 3 digital inputs, 1 digital output, and 1 single-ended analog input. Adjustable digital filters are present on the digital inputs for enhanced reliability in noisy environments. The drive comes with an RS-232 port for configuration, serial communications and programming.


All ST drives are CE approved and RoHS compliant.
