In the case of motors intended for use in the splash zone, we wanted to do more than just subject them to the 15 minutes or so of high pressure spray required to achieve the IP65 rating. We wanted to see how our motors would fair when subjected to an extended period of water being splashed on them.

Fortunately, this and other traditional limitations of step motor systems can be avoided by simply adding an encoder to the system.
