Terminal Interfaces Connects Stepper Motors

Feb. 4, 2022
Beckhoff's EL7062 is ideal for a wide range of stepper motor applications.

The EL7062 dual-channel EtherCAT terminal enables the direct connection of two stepper motors in the medium power range of up to 3 A and for a voltage range of 8-48 V. With flexible parameterization and minimized channel costs, the flexible motion interface is ideal as a low-cost drive for a wide range of stepper motor applications.

With a compact form factor, the 24-mm-wide EL7062 EtherCAT Terminal contains two stepper motor output stages, two digital inputs for limit switches and one encoder interface per channel for a wide range of 5 V encoders. Via parameterization, the EL7062 flexibly adapts to the connected stepper motor and its corresponding application requirements.
