Applied Motion announces STAC6-Q-H stepper drive for hazardous locations

September 28, 2016 - Applied Motion Products announced the release of a step motor drive that is internationally certified for use in hazardous locations. The STAC6-Q-H stepper drive is ATEX and IECEx certified for Class I, Zone 2 locations, and UL certified for Class 1, Div 2, Group C & D locations. These certifications cover the use of the drive in hazardous locations throughout the USA, Canada, Europe and the Middle East.

The STAC6-Q-H provides performance when paired with a high quality NEMA 23, 24, 34 or 42 frame step motor. An anti-resonance algorithm ensures optimal torque over a wide speed range, while microstepping ensures smooth positioning. The drive is powered by single-phase 120 VAC which generates a 160 volt DC internal bus voltage capable of driving the highest torque NEMA 34 and 42 frame step motors on the market. An encoder feedback option is available for system accuracy using Applied Motion’s stall Detection and Stall Prevention features, which overcome common limitations of open loop step motor systems.

The drive is capable of running stored programs created with Applied Motion’s Q programming language, and has sufficient input/output signals to connect with multiple external devices or sensors.
