EVA Robotics is taking initiatives for providing additional attributes and form factors to its EvoDrive ST-17 stepper motor controller.
With a view to include more utilities including wire free communication, the company is working on substituting the usual blank PCBs with application PCBs. EVA’s experts are exploring the screw terminals to replace molex connectors.
EVA Robotics is also researching on the development of an ideal form factor. They are thinking of whether to develop a frame 11 or frame 23 form factors or an open frame type or a standard form factor that does not ascend directly on to a motor.
The company has also planned to incorporate additional features including optional pulse/direction inputs, greater drive input voltage, and more I/O functions.
EVA Robotics has reported that the EvoDrive ST-17 was created exclusively for designers, enabling their clients to offer disseminated and novel drive solutions for their applications. The high end PCB can be customized by adding any design and it is a blank application PCB.
EvoDrive can interface with a microcontroller (UART, RS232, RS485) by means of a variety of connectivity preferences. New features can be availed by upgrading the EvoDrive using firmware execution. The entire PCB unit complies with any type of motor.
