At Applied Motion Products we love machines of every type. Most days we feel like we’ve seen it all, but occasionally we’re surprised by something new and different. The latest project by artist Neil Mendoza is one of those occasions.
By adding an inexpensive encoder to a step motor system, the drive can monitor the motor’s actual position directly, closing the feedback loop and avoiding many of the limitations traditionally associated with stepper systems. To make encoder feedback even easier, we’ve released a new video demonstrating three ways you can use it and how to set it up.
Learn more about our ST series stepper drives and Ethernet communications through this informative three-part video. The video offers a detailed introduction to the ST series stepper drives and walks you through wiring and setting one up.
