As the next generation of MSD542-v2 drive, the EM542S model is a new digital stepper drive based on Leadshine’s widely implemented DM stepper drives (10+ millions of units in field). While retaining features of simple design, easy setup, high precision and reliability, this drive is upgraded by adopting the latest stepper control technology and added additional advanced features for better torque (10-25%), quicker response time, control command smoothing, easy self-test, etc.
The EM542S stepper drive is able to power 2-phase (1.8°) and 4-phase (0.9°) stepper motors smoothly with very low motor heating & noise. It can take 20-50VDC supply voltage and output 0.5 to 4.2A current. All the micro step and output current configurations can be easily done via built in DIP switches. Its control type (step & direction or CW/CCW) and command smooth filtering can also be configured via DIP switches. Therefore, the EM542S stepper drive is an ideal choice for many applications requiring simple step & direction or CW/CCW control of NEMA 17, 23, and 24 stepper motors.
The EM542S stepper drive is designed to power 2-phase (1.8°) or 4-phase (0.9°) NEMA17, 23 and 24 hybrid stepper motors. It can be adopted in many industries (CNC machinery, electronics, medical, automation, packaging…) for applications such as CNC routers, mills, plasma, laser cutters, factory assembly lines, vending machines, etc. Its excellent performance, simple design, and easy setup features make EM542S ideal for many step & direction control type applications.
