Terryville, CT, April 13, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI), releases their 3501-HSTP1 Single Axis Stepper Motor Controller
for Allen Bradley's SLC500 system. The module is a direct replacement for the Allen-Bradley 1746-HSTP1 motion module for SLC500, which has been discontinued. AMCI specializes in PLC-based Motion Control and is licensed to sell the direct replacement module. AMCI’s 3501-HSTP1 replacement module is referenced within the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork™ Encompass program, as its approved technology fills the gap within the Allen-Bradley product offering.
AMCI has been Rockwell Automation’s trusted partner for PLC-based motion control products since 1992, and has been manufacturing the original 1746-HSTP1 for Rockwell Automation since 1994 as a private-party manufacturer. “Having AMCI sell the direct replacement is just a natural transition to a trusted partner.” – Matt Tellier, AMCI Motion Control Product Manager
The single-axis 3501-HSTP1 stepper motor controller is designed to control the position and velocity of a stepper motor, and features discrete inputs for functions such as homing and emergency stop. The module can also control a servo system that has been configured to use step and direction inputs.
100% Plug-and Play
AMCI's 3501-HSTP1 is a drop-in replacement for the Allen Bradley 1746-HSTP1. The module behaves just like its predecessor, using the same programming software that customers are used to. There is nothing that needs to be changed when using this as a replacement module.
“Customers with old installations can be assured that the replacement module is the same, and will work - the only thing that has changed is the label. Users will get the same level of product quality, and will benefit from working with us directly.” – Matt Tellier, AMCI Motion Control Product Manager
AMCI’s replacement module shares identical features, programming, and performance of the 1746-HSTP1 motion module, guaranteed. Sample programs are available on AMCI’s website
and can be easily incorporated into new or existing ladder logic programs, making adding the module to your system a quick and efficient process. The 3501-HSTP1 sample programs are written in RSLogix 500.
AMCI’s offers a wide assortment of specialty plug-in modules for most of the Allen Bradley PLC platforms. Specialty functions available include: analog high speed data acquisition, resolver interface, SSI interface, LDT interface, PLS control, press control, PWM (pulse width modulation), and stepper/servo motion control.
