The Evolution Continues

by Eric Rice

In 2017 Applied Motion Products evolved the broad line of StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors, ranging in size from the miniature NEMA 11 to the largest NEMA 34, to include improved EtherNet/IP and CANopen communications. These already successful products now feature greater industrial networking power, enabling them for even more advanced automation projects, and further empowering you to Make it Move.


On-board Industrial Ethernet and fieldbus

Applied Motion has released enhanced support for both EtherNet/IP and CANopen networks with the introduction of new firmware stacks for these protocols. Learn more about the improvements to our EtherNet/IP implementation in this news article, and view the full line of products that support CANopen on this page.


Fully programmable motion control

The Q programming language combines single-axis motion control functions with advanced programming features like multi-tasking, conditional processing, and math functions. The result is a highly capable programming environment right inside the motor. Users can select to execute stored Q programs over the network or operate specific models in stand-alone operation. Watch the Welcome to Q Programming video tutorial.


Ideal for position, velocity, and torque control

Absolute positioning, relative positioning, analog positioning, jogging, encoder following, homing, torque control – these are just some of the positioning functions available with StepSERVO Integrated Motors. Download the Step-Servo Quick Tuner software.


Largest range of frame sizes available

No other company offers integrated motors in NEMA 11, 17, 23, 24, and 34 frame sizes. This wide range gives us one of the most extensive offerings in the industry. Use the Browse StepSERVO Integrated Motors page to filter by frame size and see the offering in detail.


IP65 ratings for splash zone

StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors with sealed stator laminations, gasket seals at all mechanical interfaces, front shaft seals, and M12 connectors conform to IP65 ratings and are offered in two frame sizes: NEMA 24 and 34. Click here to view the product offering.


About StepSERVO™ Technology

StepSERVO™ technology combines the high torque capabilities of step motors with the closed loop dynamic control of servo systems. The result is a motor + drive solution that operates more quietly and efficiently, while providing greater torque and higher acceleration rates than traditional step motor systems.
