N5-x-1 EtherCAT

Knowledge Base

Our video shows how stepper motors are operated in closed loop mode with sensorless control and no encoder.  We recommend our motor controllers  C5  and  CL3 for our sensorless operation.

Closed-loop stepper motors as an alternative to BLDC motors Stepper motor technology was long considered to be a cost-effective alternative to applications that do not demand the high performance delivered by servo motors. Due to their attractive production price and comparatively high torque-to-size ratio, they continued to be used in device engineering. For auxiliary axes in mechanical engineering, however, servo systems began to be given...

EtherCAT stands for "Ethernet for Control Automation Technology" and is an Ethernet-based real-time fieldbus protocol. Originally EtherCAT was developed by Beckhoff Automation for automation technology applications. Since 2003 the EtherCAT Technology Group has been managing the advancement of the protocol which also became an official IEC standard in 2005. Its real-time capability and the high transmission rate of up to 100 Mbit/s...
