Product Details


The TMCM-1640 is a small low cost controller and driver module for universal brushless DC motor applications. Three different commutation modes are possible: sensorless (hallFX), with hall sensors or encoder based. Depending on the commutation mode the TMCM-1640 works with velocity and/or position control. The module can be used in standalone operation or remote controlled via serial interface (RS485 or USB) using the Trinamic Motion Control Language TMCL. Its small form factor 42 x 42 [mm] allows for mounting directly on a motor (NEMA 17 mounting holes).

For applications with encoder and hall sensors choose firmware version V2.05 (Field Oriented Control).
For applications with hallFX choose firmware version V1.47.
