LG Motion Limited has signed a national distribution agreement with Arcus Technology Inc. and will represent the Californian stepper motor innovator for sales and technical support across its full range, which focuses on strong product design, multiple communications interfaces and very competitive pricing.
Arcus Technology’s range includes the compact DMX series integrated stepper motor packages with a built-in microstepping driver and optional motion controller plus an incremental encoder that provides closed-loop feedback for automatic position correction. Available in NEMA 17 and 23 frame sizes, the controller includes multi-tasking BASIC-like programming and a full I/O count including high-speed position capture for product registration applications.
A very compact NEMA size 11 version is also available with a square section of only 25mm × 25mm. DMX integrated steppers are complemented with ACE series standalone single-axis stepper drive-controllers and PMX series standalone 2- or 4-axis stepper controllers. Across this wide range, communication interfaces include USB 2.0, RS 485, Ethernet and Modbus and CANopen. The range is completed with comprehensive GUI-based PC programming software, VMX series touchscreen HMIs, cables, power supplies and other accessories.
