Applied Motion Products, Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of a new encoder feedback option for NEMA 17, 23, and 24 frame stepper motors. These new incremental encoders are built upon a technology that utilizes capacitive reactance to generate digital signals for speed and position feedback in the motor and drive system. Capacitive encoders offer advantages over other encoder types, including resistance to environmental contaminants such as dust and oil. Modular capacitive encoders also have thin profiles and are competitively priced.

To accommodate customers' requests, we have created a new add-on connector module for TSM11 integrated motors that breaks out the communication terminals into two connectors that are separate from the power and I/O connector. These separate communication connectors make for much easier daisy-chain connections on RS-485 and Modbus RTU networks.
We are pleased to announce reduced pricing on a number of stepper drives and integrated stepper motors from our standard offering. The newly priced products are shown in the table below, including the STR series stepper drives (which include two new AC powered STRAC drives), the STM-R integrated steppers, and specific models of ST series stepper drives.
Applied Motion Products, Inc. is pleased to announce the expansion of the STR Stepper Drive offering with the release of new drives designed for use in AC powered applications. STR stepper drives are designed for smooth motion and high torque over a wide speed range, bringing high performance motion control to basic step & direction applications. Two new AC powered STRAC drives expand the offering to cover larger motors and applications where maximum power is required.
In 2017 Applied Motion Products evolved the broad line of StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors, ranging in size from the miniature NEMA 11 to the largest NEMA 34, to include improved EtherNet/IP and CANopen communications. These already successful products now feature greater industrial networking power, enabling them for even more advanced automation projects, and further empowering you to Make it Move.
Applied Motion Products is pleased to announce the release of a new, faster EtherNet/IP communications stack for all EtherNet/IP-compatible integrated motor and drive products. This new stack includes a variety of enhancements over the legacy communications stack, increasing speed and functionality while maintaining backwards compatibility.
Applied Motion Products is proud to announce that StepSERVO Integrated Motors have reached the Finals of the Golden Mousetrap Awards competition. This achievement reflects the innovation and creativity behind the design of the StepSERVO Integrated Motors, which provide many performance benefits over traditional step motor systems.
Applied Motion Products is pleased to announce the release of holding brakes for select step motors in the NEMA 23 frame size. These step motors provide additional functionality for applications which require holding torque to be maintained when power is removed from the motor.
We are pleased to announce the release of the first ever step motor drive that is internationally certified for use in hazardous locations. The STAC6-Q-H stepper drive is ATEX and IECEx certified for Class I, Zone 2 locations, and UL certified for Class 1, Div 2, Group C & D locations. These certifications cover the use of the drive in hazardous locations throughout the USA, Canada, Europe and the Middle East.
We are pleased to announce the release of NEMA 34 frame size StepSERVO Integrated Motors. The addition of these larger frame sizes in the successful StepSERVO product offering represents a widening of the product range, which already included smaller frame sizes NEMA 11, 17, 23 and 24. With the larger NEMA 34 frame size, StepSERVO Integrated Motors can now be installed in more demanding applications where greater torque is required.
