C5 - Motor Controller for Stepper Motors with Open-Loop ControlNew

Technical Data

Motor controller C5 was specially designed for the open loop control of stepper motors sized Nema 17 to Nema 34 and can be quickly and easily configured and programmed via USB.

It can be operated via clock-direction mode or through specification of the speed or position via the analog input. In addition, it supports application programs that are directly executed in the motor controller. Programs created in the C++ based programming language NanoJ are executed in the motor controller as machine code. They are synchronized with the digital inputs and outputs via the real-time operating system in 1-ms cycles.

  • Controller for open loop stepper motor 12–48 V/6 A (effective)
  • 6 digital inputs, 1 analog input, 2 digital outputs configurable via USB
  • NanoJ V2 for standalone applications
