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.
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.
