With "Xemo Step"Systec presents a twofold product innovation: It is the first Xemo stepper motor controller in an 19-inch drawer cassette and the first market-ready model in the new series of Xemo controllers with an ARM processor.The stepper motor control modules in 19 inch drawer The new Xemo Step model retains the benefits of the MCM series, offering future users many of Xemo Motion Control's non-MCM product features, along with many new technology options.
The transition is easy, because Xemo Step is 100% compatible with all stepper motor power amplifiers that have been used with MCM Step. So far, users have already used MCM Step with external power electronics in the MPM rack, a powered 19 enclosure. The new stepper motor controller can now simply be used instead of the MCM controller in the MPM housing and be controlled with up to three stepper motor output stages. Only a few adjustments in the control programming are necessary, already the better performance of the new control is available.
Xemo Step is also attractive for new automation projects in conjunction with the iPM 206 and 306 stepper motor final stages. Because the controller works problem-free with many types of stepper motor output stages, the control module is well suited as a power extension or replacement for existing stepper motor systems. It is programmed with the standard programming language "Motion Basic". The convenient diagnostic software Xemo! GO is extremely helpful during commissioning. With the supplied Windows DLL, Xemo controllers can also be programmed in other languages such as C # or VBA. The graphical programming environment Labview can also be used.
Xemo Step is the first Xemo controller to use the new 32-bit ARM4 processor with two Cortex cores with 204 Mhz each. The strength of the Xemo controllers lies in their variety of interfaces such as Ethernet, USB and RS232. There are also 2 CAN connections. Eight digital inputs and outputs as well as 16 combined signal interfaces are also possible. Four clock / direction motor outputs, one analog input and output as well as one enable input and one standby output complete the selectable communication interfaces. All inputs and outputs are galvanically decoupled from the microcontroller core and the communication interfaces.
