Offering designers an easy-to-use PC-based GUI that allows one-click modification of motor drive current, micro-stepping and other key parameters, the intuitive kits are custom designed and developed for direct mounting on a NEMA 17 motor.
Pre-programmed and pre-configured with all operating parameters to support standard 1.5A (peak) motors, the TMCM-1043 board uses Trinamic´s single-axis TMC2660 stepper motor driver IC, which integrates a motor pre-driver and power MOSFETs. Controlled by industry standard step/direction pulses, the TMCM-1043 module automatically performs all motor coil current calculations, while driving an external NEMA 17 motor with the industry’s lowest RDS(on) MOSFETs.
While the TMCM-1043 module is designed for off-the-shelf use, the new development kit enables engineers to quickly optimize their designs through modification of key parameters. Worth 230 Euros, each kit includes PC control software, a programming adaptor, a power supply, and three TMCM-1043 modules and a NEMA 17 frame test motor.
