Mouser Electronics adds motion control with Trinamic signing
Semiconductor and electronic components distributor, Mouser has signed a global distribution agreement with Trinamic, the motion control company which is now part of Maxim Integrated.
Mouser believes that Trinamic’s motion control and Maxim Integrated’s power analogue process expertises enable a new class of intelligent actuators that extend engineers’ ability to deliver intelligence at the edge for industry 4.0.
Trinamic’s application-driven approach and deep application understanding means that engineers do not need in-depth knowledge of motors or control circuitry. The simplified design phase results in labour and cost savings during the development phase as well as a reduction in the total cost of ownership.
Mouser stocks a selection of Trinamic products, including stepper motor drivers and evaluation kits. Trinamic TMCM-3110 three-axis stepper motor driver is an integrated and compact controller/driver that supports up to three bipolar stepper motors with up to 2.8A RMS coil current. The driver has an operating voltage range of 9.0 to 48V DC. It is available in versions controlled by CANopen firmware or Trinamic’s TMCL firmware. The TMCM-3110 driver provides three additional encoder interfaces.
The Trinamic TMCM-6110 six-axis stepper motor controller and driver is a standalone board that supports up to six bipolar stepper motors with up to 1.1A RMS coil current. Both boards are powered by proprietary StallGuard2, CoolStep and SpreadCycle technologies and provide RS485, CAN, and USB interfaces. An integrated protocol processor supplies high-level TMCL communication.
The TMC5130-EVAL-KIT evaluation kit allows engineers to explore all functions of the TMC5130A-TA cDriver integrated motor driver and motion controller for 3D printing, CCTV cameras, pumps, and other automated equipment applications.
The TMC5160-EVAL-KIT evaluation kit allows engineers to evaluate the high voltage TMC5160A motor controller and driver IC with serial communication interfaces. Both kits include a microcontroller board, a bridge board, and either a TMC5130-EVAL or TMC5160-EVAL driver board with full access to all registers and full functionality and diagnostics.
