By incorporating two M12 EtherNet/IP connectors instead of just one on each axis, the SWM24IP-3DE integrated stepper motor and TXM24IP-IDG StepSERVO integrated motor support more efficient network topologies such as line networks and daisy-chain connections.
With EtherNet/IP, users can control, configure and query a drive using an open, standards-based, industrial EtherNet connection at speeds up to 100 Mbits/s. All drive and motor features are accessible over the EtherNet/IP network, including more than 100 commands and 130 registers for controlling motion, I/O, configuration, polling, math, register manipulation, and Q programming. The additional EtherNet/IP communications port on the motors allows for cost savings and design simplification by reducing cables, eliminating bulky cable trays and downsizing network switches. The SWM24IP-3DE and TXM24IP-1DG integrated motors are IP65 rated for use in splash-zone and dirty environments. Each motor features a NEMA 24 (60 mm) mounting flange, which has the same mounting dimensions as a NEMA 23 motor but with a larger shaft to accommodate a higher torque output. Both motors include a built-in encoder for enhanced positioning capabilities. The SWM24IP-3DE can perform stall detection and stall prevention functions for more reliable and accurate performance than an open loop motor in a broader range of applications.
