Stepping out on Profibus with no additional costs

Single or multi axis stepper motor control over distances of up to 9.6km with copper cable and 100km with fibre optics is now a reality, says Inmoco, with the launch of its 6410 Profibus DP stepper drive.

On show at Drives & Controls, the 6410-PB is designed for use on the Profibus DP fieldbus system. As only the process data channel is used, the 6410 stepper can be integrated into any control system using Profibus DP as a sensor/actuator bus, without extra expenditure.
