MOONS’ Integrated Stepper Motor

Anti-Resonance
Step motor systems have a natural tendency to resonate at certain speeds. The STM drive+motor automatically calculates the system’s natural frequency and applies damping to the control algorithm. This greatly improves midrange stability, allows for higher speeds, greater torque utilization and also improves settling times.

Microstep Emulation
With Microstep Emulation, low resolution systems can still provide smooth motion. The drive can take low-resolution step pulses and create fine resolution micro-step motion.

Torque Ripple Smoothing
All step motors have an inherent low speed torque ripple that can affect the motion of the motor. By analyzing this torque ripple the system can apply a negative harmonic to negate this effect, which gives the motor much smoother motion at low speed.

Command Signal Smoothing
Command Signal smoothing can soften the effect of immediate changes in velocity and direction, making the motion of the motor less jerky. An added advantage is that it can reduce the wear on mechanical components. Allows for three current settings to help the motor run cooler and reduce power consumption.

  • Running Current – the current the drive will deliver for continuous motion.
  • Accel Current – the current the drive will deliver when accelerating or decelerating.
  • Idle Current – reduces current draw when motor is stationary.

Self Test & Auto Setup
At start-up the drive measures motor parameters, including the resistance and inductance, then uses this information to optimize the system performance.

MOONS’ M2 Series AC Servo System

Manufactured by: MOONS'
Sold and Serviced by Motion Technologies Pty Ltd. Ph +61 2 9524 4782. webenquiry@motiontech.com.au

M2 servo system can accomplish real time response to the dynamic feedback of the load and optimize gain tuning parameters on-line automatically. This auto tuning function can greatly save debugging time and simplify the debugging procedure. These all can be done by the PC based software in only a few minutes.

M2 servo system has advanced anti vibration function which include anti resonance and vibration damping. Anti resonance uses two notch filters to overcome the resonance from the natural mechanical characteristic of the system. Vibration damping uses an adjustable damping ratio in the controller to improve the damping characteristic of the system, which can reduce the vibration of the system.
