The high-performance SMCI36 motor controller offers high functionality in a very small space. A variety of operating modes (speed, positioning, flag position, clock-direction, analog, etc.) can be set with the help of the NanoPro software. In addition, the function of the eight digital inputs and outputs and of the analog input can be freely configured. In conjunction with the integrated Java-based programming language, application programs can be implemented on the PCB that run autonomously.

The SMCI36 controller has a continuous current of 6 A (peak up to 9 A/phase) while requiring a supply voltage of 12–72 V.

The SMCI36-L has a nominal current of 2.2 A to make sure that the current resolution in closed loop and microstep mode in small motors is sufficient. If the nominal current of your motor is below 2 A, we recommend this version.

Please note: When the laptop you connect to our motor controller is plugged in, a USB isolator must be used to prevent damage to the motor controller. The USB isolator is not required when using battery power.

Applying 24-V control signals to a motor controller with pure 5-V inputs

The motor controllers SMCI12, SMCI35, SCMI36 and SCMP33 have 5-V inputs. If a 24-V control signal is to be applied, it is essential that a 39kohm (0.25W) resistance be connected in series to each input in use.

Suppression circuit for overcoupling of 24-V control signals

Depending on the cable type, routing and length, an overcoupling onto the neighboring control line may occur with 24-V control signals. In motor controllers with wide range inputs (5–24V), this can cause a second input that is not activated to be recognized as high. To prevent this without having to change the wiring (which can be an involved process), the following suppression circuit can be provided at each input in use. Inputs that are not required can be connected directly to the motor controller ground.

 

Switching of a load or PLC via the outputs of the motor controller/Plug & Drive motor

The motor controllers and Plug & Drive motors have open collector outputs. To switch a load or PLC, you require a relay according to this circuit diagram. The flyback diode is required. Please note the maximum switching current or the maximum voltage of the selected motor controller. You can find this information in the respective manual.

SMCI35: A load/PLC cannot be connected with this motor controller.

The firmware update failed – no more communication

If communication is no longer possible with the motor controller or the motor after a failed firmware update, the firmware can be uploaded manually.
