Precision motorized rotary chuck for automatic rotation, rotary actuators, and robotic positioning. Great for medium speed 10 to 1,000 RPM, relatively high torque, 8 pound loads, and fine angular positioning of 0.90 degrees per step, with zero backlash. Direct drive results in 400 motor half-steps per revolution.
This motorized chuck include a stepper motor with integrated controller/driver for easy operation. The chuck has 3 dependent self-centering jaws, and includes an extra set of outside chucks, chuck key, AC/DC power supply 100-240 VAC 50/60 hz, AC power cord, USB-TTL-3pin cable, and 2 3 pin I/O short cables. This is a complete system that runs right out of the box.
Easily change direction, number of steps, speed, acceleration, torque, and other important controls by using the dual on-board serial communication port. Connect to a PC or smart phone using the included USB-TTL adapter. Use 2 input pins (2 analog) for external motion control, we include 2 of the 3-pin Input Cable for easy connections to your switches or PLC. Intelligent microcomputer embedded with enough memory and speed for full automatic and robotic motion control. Multi-axis and CNC/Gcode capability eliminates PLCs and PCs.
Our controllers run "right out of the box" by typing a "G". Each Excitron controller includes all the electronics and drivers for running the stepper motor, and there are no separate electronic boxes and no messy cables. Complete ready-to-run motor kit includes:
Heavy-duty steel rotary chuck with 3 internal and 3 external dependent jaws.
precision 0.90 degree per half-step stepper motor with integrated controller/driver and filter capacitor built-in.
Handy dual built-in 5 switch Joystick for jogging the motor CW or CCW two different distances, or center push for running forever til pushed again. You can change these 2 Motion Profiles per switch. Once running, you can change speed-on-the-fly with up/down Joystick pushes. Then you can permanently save the current speed by pushing the J2 Joystick top-left.
encapsulated AC/DC 110-240vac 50/60 hz power supply with AC power cord and 4 pin power connector
Key ring with 10 metric hex key wrenches, 1.5 to 10mm.
USB-TTL cable with 3 pin connector
Two 3 pin Input control cable.
2 cable manangement clamps
Nothing else is necessary, although our SW1-2D switch assembly in Accessories category is a handy external controller. Browse Documentation link on home page for 3D solid models and other files.
Gold plated connectors and printed circuit boards for ultimate reliability, heat flow, and performance. Each Controller is fully integrated with the stepper motor, producing the most compact and powerful intelligient motor drive available. Complete X family can drive stepper motors from 15mm diameter to NEMA 42, perfectly matches drive amperage with the motor size, and all X Controllercoders use exactly the same command set, to give you the utmost simplicity. These units offer the first total 100% motor drive solution, allowing easy plug-n-play for machines, CNC, robots, actuators, 3D printers, vehicles, and all equipment.
You easily control how your stepper motor operates in these modes:
- Serial Commands: send and receive via USB. Connection with PCs, PLCs or Labview work well.
- Joystick: 10 different motions built-in, and are changeable.
- Home: Home command H runs Motion Profiles 02-05, exactly as you need. You can also set the Repeat Home feature, whereby Home repeatedly runs 4 Profiles at power-up over and over. In this case, your computer is not needed. You can use also inputs to control how and when these profiles run.
- Input Profile Mode IPM: each of up to 2 input pins, In2 is analog/digital and In3 is digital, trigger 3 motion profiles each, giving you random selection of motion by simply pushing buttons.
- Driver (CNC step/dir): motor steps each time when an external STEP occurs, in the direction set by DIRECTION. CNC programs usually output these signals on a PC parallel port.
- CNC/Gcode: run 1-8 Excitron motors using popular Gcode. One Excitron motor is the master sending TTL serial commands to other Excitron motors. Master motor can read, view, save, and run Gcode files.
You can combine many of these modes, with few restrictions. All modes allow changing motor speed on-the-fly using a potentiometer on In3. Hundreds of successful customers have created very ingenious motion using these simple "building blocks", as short as 10 minutes.
You can add intelligent repetitive motion to almost any device. Package price above is hundreds of dollars less than top selling competitor's motors. Comparable price from Oriental is more than $950.
Our stepper motors and controllers give you great speed and torque, and many large companies have purchased these for automating various motions. Click on Testimonials button above.
