Oct. 7, 2016 – Applied Motion Products has added the NEMA 34 frame size to its StepServo integrated motor family.

The addition of the larger frame size in the product offering represents a “widening of the product range,” says the company, which already includes smaller frame sizes NEMA 11, 17, 23 and 24. According to Applied Motion Products, the NEMA 34 frame size means the motors can now be installed in more demanding applications where greater torque is required. TSM34 and TXM34 StepSERVO integrated motors come in four lengths; the longest motors (-6) offer holding torque values of 1,161 oz-in (8.2 N-m) and peak torque values over 1,300 oz-in (9.2 N-m). TXM34 integrated motors are IP65 rated with M12 connectors for all connections and a shaft seal at the front shaft. TSM34 integrated motors are IP40 rated with screw terminal and pluggable connectors for power, communication, and I/O connections. A highly anticipated feature of the NEMA 34 StepSERVO Integrated Motors is dual-port Ethernet, which simply means two Ethernet ports per motor instead of one. The motors can now be connected (daisy-chained) in a line network topology in addition to the traditional star network topology. This small but important improvement allows for cost savings and design simplification via the reduction of cable lengths, the omission of bulky cable runs, and the downsizing of network switches.
