October 16, 2018 - Texas-based AccelMotion announced the DC2M17 Intelligent Motor Module. It transforms a NEMA17 stepper motor into a motion-control subsystem. AccelMotion created the DC2M17 by integrating a 2A 35V driver with a motion controller, configurable general-purpose inputs and outputs, and diagnostic and protective circuits; all of it powered by a single DC supply. It features interoperability with other AccelMotion DC-series controller/drivers allowing up to 32 axes of motion under a single host control, and language compatibility with products from sister company AMS. When attached to a step motor it extends the motor length by 1.18” (30mm) so it fits into tight spaces. Designed for OEM use, the DC2M17 is priced for integration in equipment destined for: laboratory materials handling, packaging, testing, factory automation, and other motion-control applications. An optional aluminum case cover provides protection in tough environments as well as cooling under highest load.
