Encoder Feedback in Step Motor Systems

Applied Motion Products offer closed loop control features on all of our stepper drives, motors, and integrated products by utilizing incremental quadrature encoders mounted to the rear shaft of the step motor. Stepper drives with encoder feedback connectors can be married to double-shaft step motors with encoders pre-assembled for you. Integrated steppers are available with encoders built directly into the housing of the motor.

Adding an encoder to your stepper system greatly enhances performance by providing you with these closed-loop functions: Stall Detection and Stall Prevention.
