BigTreeTech TMC5160 V1.2 Stepper Driver
The TMC5160 contains all the intelligence that is required to drive a motor.
When receiving target positions, the TMC5160 manages the motor movement. Based on the unique TRINAMIC functions StallGuard2, coolStep, dcStep, SpreadCycle and StealthChop
the TMC5160 optimizes drive performance. It compares speed and engine torque, optimizes energy efficiency, smoothness and quietness.
TMC5160 is a high-performance stepper motor control chip, which has an externally enhanced power MOSET, the maximum current can reach 20A, low heat generation during operation.
The support of the unique StealthChop2 mode from TRINAMICS eliminates engine noise by reducing resonances. StallGuard2 ™, which detects when the motor has stopped and thus replaces a mechanical end stop.
DcStep ™ can run the motor close to its load limit and speed limit.
The SpreadCycle ™ chopper algorithm has high precision, is used for highly dynamic motors and is an absolutely low-noise, low-resonance and low-vibration chopper.
CoolStep ™ is a flow control function. which balance the drive power, speed and motor torque and optimize energy efficiency. This enables smoother and quieter driving and reduces energy consumption by 75%.
