SC6 and SI6 drive controllers

Perfectly designed

The 6th generation of STOBER drive controllers provide the right solution for the increasingly complex requirements and functions in automation technology and machine engineering. New to the range is the SC6 stand-alone device, which enables extremely compact and economical application designs with up to four axes thanks to its integrated power supply and narrow structure. Design engineers now have access to three series from STOBER which they can combine and, that way, implement any conceivable task and a wide variety of applications. In addition to the new SC6, this includes the SI6 multi-axis drive controller and the flexible, extremely versatile SD6.

STOBER LeanMotor at SPS IPC Drives

The new LeanMotor took center stage for STOBER at this year’s SPS IPC Drives. “SPS IPC Drives is the most important trade show of the year for us,” explains Patrick Stöber. “It is a joy to present a world first this year and to see this much interest.

For engineers looking for a more cost-effective and better performing replacement for an AC motor but don’t require a high specification Servo Drive, the new Lean Motor from STOBER is the ideal solution.
STOBER presents its new drive controller in multi-axis drive system

Innovations in series

Matthias Meyering, Head of Product Management Electronics: “Even more decisive than the sheer compactness of the SI6 is the omission of redundant supply units. The entire series of drive controllers is connected with a central supply module. The fuses and cabling for each individual axis are also dispensed with here. The drive controllers are connected with each other via Quick DC-Link modules. And by using double axis modules, unused power reserves of an axis can be used for other axes.”
