The Monopack 2 is an intelligent easy-to-use stepper motor driver for two-phase bipolar stepper motors with up to 5A coil current. It comes in a small and robust housing and provides a high motor power and dynamics. It can be controlled via CAN bus, an RS485, RS232 or a Step/Direction interface and provides the functionality for either remote controlled or stand alone applications. Its optional encoder feedback and a number of protection features makes this drives very dependant and reliable. The Monopack 2 can do up to 406 microsteps and needs a power supply of 12-48 Volts.
A Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP based PC software is supplied to explore the possibilities of the Monopack 2. To use this software, the Monopack just has to be connected to the PC via its RS232 interface.
The Monopack 2 replaces the Trinamic products “Monopack” and “Monopack LT” which have been discontinued. It is fully compatible with the Monopack and offers most features of the Monopack LT. A DIP switch allows to select either “Monopack” or “Monopack LT” mode. Also the maximum motor current can be either 2.5A like in the old Monopack and Monopack LT or, in the extended mode, 5A. This can also be selected by a DIP switch. From version V2.0 on the Monopack 2 is RoHS conform.
Symmetry Electronics (and its e-commerce division: SemiconductorStore.com) is an authorized Trinamic distributor.
