Introducing STR Stepper Drives

by Eric Rice

Applied Motion Products introduces the STR, a new drive engineered to deliver the features expected by today’s machine builders, at a price they need.

The STR step motor drives, available in 4 amp and 8 amp versions, are DC input drives requiring a step and direction control signal. They feature anti-resonance, microstep emulation and idle current reduction. Configuration is done entirely with switches on the drive. AMP engineers optimized the performance for a number of motors, storing all the configuration parameters on the drive. The motor is then selected by a 16 position rotary switch.

Custom configurations are welcomed for OEMs wishing to use a different motor. The STR is compact, measuring only 4.64” × 2.97” × 1.29”.
