We are very pleased to announce the introduction of our most compact stepper drive to date. The STR3 miniature advanced stepper drive offers many of the great features of our larger drives, but in an ultra-compact package designed for OEMs demanding high performance and a competitive price point.

StepSERVO™ closed loop stepper technology is a major improvement over traditional, open loop stepper technology. By closing the loop around speed and position data – using high resolution encoders and the same PID control that’s used with a servo motor – StepSERVO closed loop systems outperform open loop systems in every way. Increased torque, higher throughput, more efficient operation and less audible noise are just some of the benefits.
Applied Motion is pleased to announce the addition of 0.9 degree step motors to our product offering. 0.9 degree step motors are advantageous when a microstepping drive is not available. Because 0.9 degree motors have twice the step resolution (400 steps/rev) than 1.8 degree step motors (200 steps/rev), they run inherently smoother when driven with full or half step drives.
What do you need to get your servo project up and running quickly at an economical cost? A servo system that is top quality, easy to select, easy to install, and readily available. In other words, ServoSETS from Applied Motion!
What are ServoSETS?
Design World contributing editor Steve Meyer recently published an article titled “Step Motors: Take a Step in the Right Direction” featuring Applied Motion’s very own Jeff Kordik, Chief Technical Officer, and the new StepSERVO™ line of integrated stepper motors. The article is about the traditional limitations of step motors – such as rotor settling time, resonance and motor heating – and how those limitations can be overcome using closed loop current control.
Customers who build high throughput production machinery demand cost effective, high performance motion control. Applied Motion Products has responded to this demand by developing a broad range of step-servo motors. Ideally suited for applications such as packaging and labeling, automated test and measurement, automated assembly and life sciences.
