Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI; Terryville, CT), releases its 3501-HSTP1 Single Axis Stepper Motor Controller for Allen Bradley's SLC500 system. The module is a direct replacement for the Allen-Bradley 1746-HSTP1 motion module for SLC500, which has been discontinued. AMCI specializes in PLC-based Motion Control and is licensed to sell the direct replacement module. AMCI’s 3501-HSTP1 replacement module is referenced within the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork Encompass program, as its approved technology fills the gap within the Allen-Bradley product offering. The single-axis 3501-HSTP1 stepper motor controller module:
- Is designed to control the position and velocity of a stepper motor, and features discrete inputs for functions such as homing and emergency stop.
- Can also control a servo system that has been configured to use step and direction inputs.
- Shares identical features, programming, and performance of the 1746-HSTP1 motion module, guaranteed. Sample programs are available on AMCI’s website and can be easily incorporated into new or existing ladder logic programs, making adding the module to your system a quick and efficient process. The 3501-HSTP1 sample programs are written in RSLogix 500.
