Setup parameters include Microstep Resolution and Run-and-Hold currents, and can be changed on-the-fly or downloaded and stored in non-volatile memory with GUI. Operating
voltage is +24 to +75 VDC. MDrive34 is available in single stack, optical encoder, linear actuator, and rear knob.



Original Press Release:


Introducing the MDrive 34 Motor + Driver


Following the introduction of the MDrive17 and MDrive23 in spring 2001, Intelligent Motion Systems, Inc., continues to expand its innovative new line of compact, high-torque integrated
motor+driver products with the addition of a NEMA size 34 MDrive which will debut at National Manufacturing Week 2001, booth 7326. The low cost MDrive34 provides designers the simplicity of a motor with on-board electronics but without the expense of an indexer on each axis, allowing the designer to select the best method of control for their application. The MDrive is well suited for applications in robotics, medical instruments, assembly, semiconductor manufacturing, packaging, engraving, inspection and pick-and-place.

The MDrive34 uses a NEMA 34 frame size 1.80 motor combined with a microstepping drive, and accepts up to 14 resolution settings from 1/2 to 256 microsteps per step. An MDrive34 Speed Control
version is also available. Setup parameters include Microstep Resolution and Run-and-Hold currents, and can be changed on-the-fly or downloaded and stored in non-volatile memory with the use of a simple GUI which is provided, eliminating the need for external switches or resistors. Parameters are changed via an SPI port. The MDrive's integrated electronics eliminates the need to run the motor cabling through the machine, reducing the potential for problems due to electrical noise. Operating
voltage is +24 to +75 VDC.

To fit various system needs, the versatile MDrive34 is available in multiple configurations including single stack, optical encoder, linear actuator, and rear knob. The rotary MDrive34 is also available in half, full and double stack lengths.

The MDrive34 is a small, powerful and inexpensive solution that will reduce system cost, designand assembly time for a large range of stepping motor applications.
