Brushless DC motors are the fastest growing segment of the motion control market. TRINAMIC launches a new Evaluation Kit based on the TMCM-160, a highly integrated and economic module for intelligent Brushless DC (BLCD) motor driving.

The evaluation kit comes as a ready to run/plug and play solution, with a high quality brushless motor, a powerful software package and cables for easy starting. The Windows based user interface software enables fast and easy evaluation of the brushless motor's advantages and control options. The module's powerful firmware supports various drive modes and may be upgraded.

Following the evaluation, the standard version of the TMCM-160 may be utilized for series production. The core of the evaluation kit is a small module, measuring 50-by-92mm, equipped with connectors to attach a three phase BLDC motor, the motor's hall sensors and a serial host interface. While the Evalkit version of the module always comes with RS-232, the standard version of the TMCM-160 is also available with RS-485 interface for multi-axis or industrial applications. The TMCM-160 Evalkit is now in stock at all TRINAMIC distributors, with a recommended sales price as low as EUR 149. The TMCM-160 module (w/o motor, cables and user interface) comes with two different interface options (RS-232, RS-485) and is available off-the-shelf.
