koco Motion presents the next generation with the EM_S Stepper motor drivers, which are controlled via the clock-direction interface. They offer better settings, are even easier to use and have better performance than their predecessors. For the factory of the future there are the drivers either with CAN open or Ethercat interface.
Improved DIP switches offer more setting options: 5 V or 24 V inputs can be set via slide switches. In particular, operators of older generations will be pleased, because the 24 V outputs could often only be processed via series resistors. If they did not pay attention, the driver was damaged. Anti-resonance properties ensure optimum torque. This results in a particularly smooth low-vibration movement and the engine runs quieter. Thanks to a new function for automatic holding current reduction, the engine is more economical in energy consumption and heats up less.
Different stepper motor sizes can be configured automatically. The stepper motor drivers allow a soft start of the motor, which manages without switch-on. There is a digital output for faults and, starting with the EM5 type, an output will also be available to control a brake. The integrated overvoltage and overcurrent protection device ensures reliable operation.
The EM-CAN series consists of a stepper motor driver with CANopen communication bus. They support the standard CiA 402 protocol and are compatible with the corresponding CAN open master controls. These stepper motors have excellent performance and can drive 2 Nema 8, 11, 14, 17, 23, 24 and 34 phase stepper motors. The new EtherCAT controls support the open-loop and closed-loop operation of stepper motors - simply and cheaply. There are the Ethercat controllers in different sizes for different drive sizes. Up to seven configurable inputs and outputs can be easily integrated into existing systems. They support the following operating modes: Profile Position (PP), Profile Velocity (PV), Homing (HM) and Cyclic Synchronous Position (CSP).

Hannover Messe Hall 5, Stand A31 Cover story Koco Motion and Adlos have revised their ingenious unique platform "Kannmotion". The cooperation partners present the generation 2.0 drive consisting of a stepper motor with integrated control and encoder. Electronic and mechanical improvements were made and the software further developed. The operating tool for the stepper motors has also been completely revised. It now supports users even better in integrating the platform into their product development.
Koco Motion has now added Sonic motors to its range. The drives, which are available in sizes from 14 to 32 mm, are often used in toothbrushes, massage or facial cleansing devices. The manufacturer's drives are compact, run quietly and are very reliable. Visually, the Sonic motors hardly differ from normal rotary drives. But what are Sonic motors anyway?
Brushless external rotor drives combine a small installation space with a high power density. With the BO6452N3B, Koco Motion presents a new addition to the product family that offers impressive parameters thanks to the choice of materials and magnets. Outputs in the four-digit range can be generated from small sizes.
With the EM_S, Koco Motion presents the next generation of stepper motor drivers that are controlled via the clock direction interface. They offer better setting options, are even easier to use and have better performance than their predecessors. For the factory of the future, the drivers are available with either CAN open or Ethercat interfaces.
SPS Hall 3, Booth 240 The ironless DC motors from Koco Motion have already proven their worth in many applications. They are very efficient, offer high speeds and a long service life. Now the drive specialist is expanding its series of 'Coreless Motors' with new versions that are specially designed for the requirements in medical technology and safety technology.
Olaf Kämmerling, Managing Director of Koco Motion GmbH, Mannheim, introduces the company as a system provider whose offer today goes far beyond that of a pure distributor.
Hannover Messe Hall 14, Stand L35 Cover story Stepper motor linear actuators are on the rise, especially if they can eliminate the complex pneumatic cylinders. At Koco Motion, their share of total sales has increased disproportionately in recent years. Reason enough to take a look behind the scenes of the extensive portfolio, which is available in a standard version and customized - the latter with an increasing trend.
Dr. Gerrit Kocherscheidt (44) has been the new managing director of Koco Automotive GmbH since January 2018. The physicist takes over the sister company of Koco Motion GmbH, founded in 2013. Both companies are located in Dauchingen.
Cover story Not yet available a few years ago, the share of DC motors (DC) now accounts for 70 percent of the entire Koco Motion portfolio - and the trend is rising. The drive specialist's extensive and also customer-specific executable DC motor program covers a power range from 0,06 to 1670 W. Brushed and brushless motors are available in numerous designs for a wide variety of applications.
