Mouser Electronics has announced a global distribution agreement with Trinamic, now part of Maxim Integrated, empowering intelligent motion. Trinamic’s motion control expertise and Maxim Integrated’s efficient power analogue process technology enable a new class of intelligent actuators that extend engineers’ ability to deliver intelligence at the edge and achieve the promise of 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. As a result, the design phase is simplified, resulting in significant labour and cost savings in development as well as a reduction in the total cost of ownership.
Mouser now stocks a broad selection of Trinamic products, including stepper motor drivers and evaluation kits. Trinamic TMCM-3110 3-axis stepper motor driver is a highly integrated and compact controller/driver that supports up to three bipolar stepper motors with up to 2.8 ARMS coil current. The driver features an operating voltage range of 9 VDC to 48 VDC and 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 6-axis stepper motor controller and driver is a standalone board that supports up to six bipolar stepper motors with up to 1.1 ARMS coil current. Both the TMCM-3110 and TMCM-6110 ready-to-use 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. Both off-the-shelf products save considerable development time, making them ideal solutions for projects with a short time to market.
The TMC5130-EVAL-KIT evaluation kit allows engineers to explore all functions of the TMC5130A-TA cDriver integrated motor driver and motion controller solution 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 to enable quick and easy evaluation with full access to all registers and full functionality and diagnostics.
