AMCI's SMD17K Integrated Stepper is a size 17 3-in-1 Integrated Stepper Motor, Drive, and Controller package with an EtherCAT network interface. It is a self-contained motion control product that is easy to install while delivering best in class performance at a competitive price.
AMCI's SMD17K incorporates a Stepper Motor + Drive + Controller into a single product that interfaces to your PLC or PAC over the EtherCAT network. We've reduced total system costs and simplified installation because you only have to purchase one product versus a separate controller, drive, and motor. Plus, programming & configuration is streamlined because it uses standard commands through your PLC's software that are communicated over the network. No additional software is required, and you don't need to learn another programming language! AMCI's SMD17K integrates with your PLC or PAC, saving you time and money.
All units come standard with rugged industrial M12 connectors to provide superior durability. For applications requiring an IP64 rating (protection from dust and splashing water), you can opt for an SMD17K unit with a shaft seal.
AMCI's SMD17K is available with an incremental or absolute encoder for move verification and closed-loop feedback.
