Product Overview

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.

Webinar - STR Stepper Drives

The STR stepper drives feature high performance, low cost, and front panel switches for quick and easy setup of the drive and step motor. The STR drives also come with the same sophisticated current control, including anti-resonance and microstep emulation, as their older brothers, the ST5 and ST10. This short recording of the STR Webinar, originally presented live on June 7, 2010, gives an overview of the drives as well as video instruction on how to get started with them.
