The ST5-Q and ST10-Q stepper indexer/drives are a favorite of design engineers worldwide. Here are some of the features available:

  • Multiple communication options including RS-232, RS-485, Ethernet, EtherNet/IP and CANopen
  • 8 programmable inputs, 4 programmable outputs, 2 analog inputs
  • Closed loop encoder feedback option with dynamic position maintainence
  • Encoder following mode
  • Host or HMI communication mode
  • Stand-alone mode
  • Q programs including math functions can be stored in non-volatile memory

But did you know there are two models, known as the ST5-Plus and ST10-Plus, that come with many of the same features? These drives have a smaller footprint, a lower price, but the same amount of power. Features include:

  • RS-232 port
  • 3 programmable inputs, 1 programmable output, 1 analog input
  • Encoder following mode
  • Host or HMI communication mode
  • Stand-alone mode
  • Q programs including math functions can be stored in non-volatile memory

So if you have an application requiring on-board motion control with limited I/O, for anything from a size 17 through 34 stepper motor, check out the ST5-Plus and ST10-Plus.
