White Paper on StepSERVO™ Closed Loop Steppers

by Eric Rice

StepSERVO™ closed loop stepper technology is a major improvement over traditional, open loop stepper technology. By closing the loop around speed and position data – using high resolution encoders and the same PID control that’s used with a servo motor – StepSERVO closed loop systems outperform open loop systems in every way. Increased torque, higher throughput, more efficient operation and less audible noise are just some of the benefits.

Jeff Kordik, CTO of Applied Motion Products, went into the lab to test the performance differences of StepSERVO closed loop systems against traditional open loop systems and published the results in this white paper: Comparing Open Loop and StepSERVO™ Closed Loop Stepper Systems.
