  • User selected Disable/Enable input can be selected to perform either function
  • Simplified set-up via onboard LED diagnostic indicates specific fault condition
  • 170 V bus, outputs current up to 6.3 Arms, selectable in 0.1A increments
  • Automatic current reduction
  • User-selectable gain for fine tuning performance
  • UL Listed
  • Description

    Microstepping Stepper Motor Driver - 6.3 Arms/8.9A peak (114VAC)

    The SD17060B is a compact and powerful 6.3 Arms stepper motor driver that boasts several enhancements over its previous iteration (SD17060).

    A narrower, more compact design retains the standard mounting pattern, but saves valuable panel space. Additionally, improvements to the drive yield a streamlined enclosure, eliminating the finned heat sink and permitting optional panel or side mounting for increased thermal transfer. Set-up and configuration have been simplified via onboard LED diagnostics that communicate specific fault conditions. And the Enable/Disable input can be user selected to perform either function, as well as being used to clear a fault.

    Standard AMCI safeguards have been carried forward, including an interlock connection to prevent injury if the motor connector is removed while the driver is powered. Additional protections include short circuit protection - phase to phase and phase to ground- and overtemperature circuitry.

    The SD17060B 6.3 Amp stepper motor driver will interface with AMCI's complete line of high torque stepper motors, which range in frame size from NEMA 23 to NEMA 42. These motors have been tested and selected to perfectly match the electrical requirements of the SD17060B.

    This combination of stepper motor driver and stepper motor provides the best performance for your application. Performance, price, and product all combine to offer you the best value.

    Input Requires 10mA of current to operate

    NOTE: Replacing a SD17060B-24
    A SD17060B-24 can be replaced by a SD17060B without changes to the system as long as the SD17060B was manufactured after December of 2008.
    If the SD17060B was manufactured prior to the second half of
    December 2008, you will have to add current limiting resistors to the circuit before using the SD17060B.
    Fault output voltage:open collector/emitter 30Vdc max & 20 mA max

    Operational Specifications

    Microstepping Stepper Motor Driver - 6.3 Arms/8.9A peak (114VDC)
    Current rating:6.3 Arms (average current) / 8.9A peak (peak current)

    NOTE: There are 2 ways to express the magnitude of current in microstepping stepper motor drivers, RMS and Peak. See the tutorial on bottom of this page for more info.

    1 amp RMS = 1.414 amp Peak.

    AMCI's SD17060B stepper motor drive is rated for 6.3 amp RMS or 8.9 amp Peak.
