The combination of Trinamic’s motion control expertise and Maxim’s efficient power analog process technology allows a new type of intelligent actuator that delivers intelligence at the edge and realises the potential of Industry 4.0.
Trinamic’s approach allows solutions to be developed without the designer requiring an in-depth knowledge of motors or control circuitry. This simplifies the design phase and results in time and cost savings.
Mouser will now offer a wide range of Trinamic products that includes stepper motor drivers and evaluation kits. For example, Trinamic’s TMCM-3110 3-axis stepper motor driver is small, highly integrated and supports up to three bipolar stepper motors with up to 2.8 ARMS coil current. The driver has an operating voltage range of 9 VDC to 48 VDC and the company provides versions that are controlled by CANopen firmware or its own TMCL firmware. The TMCM-3110 driver features three additional encoder interfaces.
The Trinamic TMCM-6110 6-axis stepper motor controller and driver is a standalone board. It has been developed to support up to six bipolar stepper motors with a coil current of up to 1.1 ARMS. Both the TMCM-3110 and TMCM-6110 are powered by proprietary StallGuard2, CoolStep, and SpreadCycle technologies and offer RS485, CAN, and USB interfaces. The integrated protocol processor supplies high-level TMCL communication.
TMC5130-EVAL-KIT is an evaluation kit that allows the exploration of all functions of the TMC5130A-TA driver integrated motor driver and motion controller solution. The TMC5160-EVAL-KIT allows the evaluation of the high-voltage TMC5160A motor controller and driver IC with serial communication interfaces. Both kits feature an MCU board, a bridge board, and either a TMC5130-EVAL or TMC5160-EVAL driver board.
