The Leadshine MX3660 is a high performance 3-axis stepper drive with built-in breakout board and I/Os based on the latest DSP technology. It is specially designed for EASY and RAPID control of up to three 2-phase stepper motors. The MX3660 3-axis stepper drive operates under 20 to 60 VDC input voltage and can output up to 6.0 A current (peak of sinusoidal) per axis. It takes step & direction control and is easy to implement for OEM applications.

By adopting Leadshine advanced stepper motor control technology, the MX3660 3-axis stepper drive can power stepper motors in high precision, at extra smoothness, and with extra low motor heating & noise. It is featured with anti resonance, multi-stepping, vibration suppression, input command smoothing, 50% idle current reduction, etc.

The MX3660 3-axis stepper drive is easy to configure. Via the 6-pin DIP switch of each of the 3 stepper drive modules, a user can easily set the output current and micro step to one of their 8 available settings, 1.45 to 6.0 A and full step - 1/64 respectively. Each axis can have its own current & micro step configurations to satisfy different requirements for the controlled stepper motor. For example, a user can set axis X at 8 micro step & 6.0 A for a NEMA 34 motor, axis Y at 10 micro step & 2.72 A to drive a NEMA 23 motor, and axis Z at 16 micro step & 1.45 A to for a NEMA 17 motor.

The MX3660 3-axis stepper drive is integrated with a breakout board with a DB25 connector and built-in I/Os. This allows convenient, easy and quick connection for controllers (e.g. PC-based control systems, motion controllers, PLCs) and external devices (limit switches, VFD). It simplifies system setup, save installation space & time, minimizes wiring, increases reliability, and cuts costs. In addition, the MX3660 offers a built-in digital smoother to allow filtering/smoothing of noise pulses for better system performance (application dependent).

The MX3660 adopts a modular design. If any of the three stepper drive modules malfunctions, a user can simply replace it with a Leadshine SDM660 stepper drive module at minimal cost.
