The 3540i is a programmable step motor driver suitable for a wide range of motion control applications. It includes a sophisticated controller integrated with a 140 watt microstepping amplifier. The 3540i includes Applied Motion's easy to use Si Programmerâ„¢ Windows software for the rapid development of stand-alone motion control programs. The 3540i can also be commanded in real time from a host PC or PLC, using the Si Command Languageâ„¢ (SCL). SCL allows for control via serial commands sent from a host device such as a PC or PLC. This permits the user to perform a variety of motion, I/O, and system status tasks in real time via a host serial device.<br><br> For multi-axis applications, up to 4 Applied Motion Siâ„¢ drives (stepper or Servo) can be networked using a single SiNetâ„¢ Hub. The 3540i includes 8 optically isolated programmable inputs for triggering, branching, position sensing and end of travel detection. 3 optically isolated programmable outputs can send signals to other electronic devices and activate relays. A daughterboard is available which provides an encoder input as well as an RS485 interface. <br><br><b>Si Programmer</b> <br>Intended for use in stand-alone applications, Si (Simple Indexer) Programmer provides quick, out-of-the-box use with an extremely friendly, point-and-click graphical interface that does not require any software programming experience. Once an Si program has been constructed and downloaded to the drive, the program can be executed stand-alone at power-up or from an external trigger. Constructing a program is accomplished through the use of instructions selected in a point-and-click manner. Once an instruction is selected, a """"fill in the blanks"""" format is used to input parameters. <br><br> Constructing an Si program requires no prior programming experience nor does it require learning a programming language. Si Programmer generates the actual motion control program, based on user selected parameters, thereby eliminating syntax errors. Once created, programs are easily downloaded, uploaded, saved and printed. <br><br> Si Programmer also provides the capability to control digital inputs and outputs, useful for interfacing with external equipment like PLCs, sensors, end-of-travel switches, and more. Si Programmer has found success in all types of applications, from simple linear actuator applications to complete machine control with operator interface applications.
