The 3540 series consists of a 3540M step motor drive, 3540MO drive/oscillator and 3540i drive/controller. All three products are designed around a precision state of the art, microstepping, motor drive capable of powering NEMA 14 through NEMA 34 frame size motors. Each device produces 122 watts of usable power and microsteps at resolutions up to 12,800 steps per revolution. Microstepping resolutions up to 50,800 steps/rev are available at motor speeds up to 50 rps on the 3540i.
One of the main features of the 3540i is Applied Motion's Simple Indexer Technology Windows graphical user interface. No program language to learn, no software engineer to consult, no code to write. The system does the programming, you need only input the move parameters.
