STM24x-xxx Integrated Drive+Motor w/EtherNet/IP & Encoder

The STM24IP-3EE integrated stepper is a drive+motor unit, fusing a NEMA 24 step motor and a sophisticated 6.0 A/phase (peak-of-sine) stepper drive into a single device. Power to the drive, located at the rear of the motor, must be supplied by an external DC supply. This integrated stepper incorporates EtherNet/IP network communications, the widely used industrial protocol for manufacturing automation applications. With EtherNet/IP users can control, configure and query the drive using an open, standards-based, industrial Ethernet connection at speeds up to 100 MBits/sec. All STM24IP units run the same control modes as STM24Q units, with the addition that all drive+motor features can be accessed over EtherNet/IP, including more than 100 commands and 130 registers for controlling motion, I/O, configuration, polling, math, register manipulation, and Q programming. Setup and configuration of the STM24IP is done using Applied Motion’s ST Configurator™ software, while Q programs are created using the Q Programmer™ software.


An integral 1000-line (4000 count/rev) incremental encoder is housed inside the same enclosure as the drive electronics, providing protection from dust and debris. The integration of the encoder means the STM24IP can perform special functions not available otherwise. Stall Detection notifies the system as soon as the required torque is too great for the motor, which results in a loss of synchronization between the rotor and stator, also known as stalling. Stall Prevention actually prevents stalling of the step motor by dynamically adjusting motor speed to maintain synchronization of the rotor to the stator under all conditions. This unique feature allows step motors to operate in a much broader range of applications than previously available to step motors, such as torque-control applications. The Stall Prevention feature also performs static position maintenance, which maintains the position of the motor shaft when at rest.


Each STM24IP integrated stepper comes with 3 digital inputs, 1 digital output, and 1 analog input. The digital inputs accept signals of 5-24 VDC and can be used for connecting pulse & direction signals, end-of-travel limit switches, jog switches, quadrature encoder signals, PLC outputs, sensors, or many other signal types. The digital output can be connected to PLC inputs, counters, lights, relays, or other devices. The analog input accepts 0-5 VDC signals and can be used for velocity and position control. The STM24IP-3EE comes with a fast 10/100 MBit Ethernet port for programming and EtherNet/IP communications. The same port also supports TCP and UDP protocols for sending commands from Applied Motion’s proprietary serial command language (SCL).


All STM24IP models are CE approved and RoHS compliant.
