TMCL: Door Contact with Position Mode

TMCL is the simple way to implement your motion control application. With this series of simple coding examples we want to provide you an easy start. This programs demontrates how to implement an application containing one or more parallel door contacts, e.g. automatic rolling window shade. The movement of the rolling window shade stops as soons as the door contact is […]

TMCL: Timer Interrupts

TMCL is the simple way to implement your motion control application. With this series of simple coding examples we want to provide you an easy start. This program demonstrates how to use the timer interrupt. To use this program connect LEDs to OUT_0 and OUT_1. The LED at Port OUT_1 is toggling at 2 Hz using the WAIT command. […]

TMCL: Use of X-Register

TMCL is the simple way to implement your motion control application. With this series of simple coding examples we want to provide you an easy start. This program demonstates the usage of the X-register. The motor 0 is performing 10 rotations with velocity 1000 then the program will be stopped. Before use: Restore Factory Defaults

TRINAMIC reveals progress on AutoR Heliostat Program

In July 2014 TRINAMIC first announced its cooperation with the German Aerospace Agency (DLR) Institute for Solar Research and the Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg in the development of a low-cost, lightweight and highly efficient Autonomous Rim, or AutoR heliostat project. Heliostats are large mirror arrays that reflect sunlight onto a common point, generating heat that drives […]

TMCL: Usage of coolStep

TMCL is the simple way to implement your motion control application. With this series of simple coding examples we want to provide you an easy start. This program demonstrates the usage of coolStep™.  Motor 0 will run at 1/4 of the max. current set by SAP 6. The parameters especially the stallGuardValue and the settings for coolStep […]

Silent Stepper-Motors opening new Fields of Application

Stepper-Motors are robust and cheap, but not silent. Even if the times that stepper-motors have been driven in voltage control full- or halfstep mode, they still have the reputation of being noisy. With modern control modes and careful layout it is now possible to design completely silent stepper-motor drives. Read full article (German language) at all-electronics.net
