Motor controller for EtherNet, Modbus applications

The N5 motor controller from Nanotec is available with EtherNet/IP and Modbus/TCP fieldbus interfaces and can be programmed for time-critical subroutines to be executed in the controller.

Courtesy: NanotecThe N5 motor controller from Nanotec is available with EtherNet/IP and Modbus/TCP fieldbus interfaces. The N5 motor controllers can be connected to a wide variety of higher-level controllers. By using the N5 controller and field-oriented control (FOC), both BLDC and stepper motors can be operated in torque, speed, and positioning mode. The N5 can be programmed using Nanotec’s NanoJ V2 software, which allows for time-critical subroutines to be executed directly in the controller, independently from fieldbus communication.

In the low current version, the N5 controller is designed for an operating voltage of 12 to 72 V, with a nominal current of 10 A. The high current version has an operating voltage from 12 to 48 V, with a nominal current of 10 A and a peak current of 54 A. The N5 features six digital and two analog inputs, as well as two digital outputs and an input for a 5 V/24 V encoder. Hall sensors are an optional feature, and a holding brake can be added if required.
