MD5230D 5-phase stepper motor Integrated 2-axis Motion Controller and Driver

MD5230D is 5-phase stepper motor unit with bipolar pentagon drive, equipped with high functions 4-axis motion control IC, MCX514.
The software “MD Operation Tool” is attached which can edit and register configuration data and a user program.

Linear, circular and continuous interpolation drive
Constant speed, linear acceleration/deceleration(symmetry/non-symmetry), S-curve acceleration/deceleration drive
Automatic home search
Step out detection by an encoder signal
Microstep resolution(Divided into max. 250)
Low vibration driving at low speed
Power voltage :DC24V
Driving current :0.35A~1.4A/phase


User program

The user can register various driving parameters and the user program of up to 1000 steps by 36 kinds of commands. Thereby the complex operation can easily be performed by registering them in advance. MD5230D user program file is saved in the format of CSV file. The user can edit a user program file by using spreadsheet software applications

<MD5230D operation tool>



MD5230D can execute linear and circular interpolation in XY orthogonal coordinates. Continuous interpolation can also be executed that performs a series of interpolation processes such as linear interpolation → circular interpolation → linear interpolation → ···.

USB interface

The maximum of 16units can be connected to one PC with USB cable. The user can write and edit program and execute manual operation of each axis from MD operation tool. MD5230D has communication commands. The user can create your own software with these commands by such as VB, VC and control a MD5230D.


Parallel control interface

The Parallel Interface can be used to execute the drive activation corresponding arbitrary position data at specified speed by connected to the master PLC(Programmable Logic Controller). Also, scan drive, continuous drive and program execution can be performed.
