SMCI36 – Stepper and BLDC motor controller
Compact and high-performance open controller for BLDC and stepper motors. Practically noise- and resonance-free motor operation in both open-loop and closed-loop mode due to dspDrive®. The L variant has a rated current of 2.2 A in order to achieve a better current resolution in closed-loop and microstep mode with small motors. RS485 or CANopen interface, hence suitable for a wide range of applications.
When connecting a plugged-in laptop with this controller via USB, a USB isolator must be used to prevent damage to the controller. The USB isolator is not required when using battery power.
For new designs we recommend the C5-E controllers.
