  • Applied Motion Products Introduces Closed Loop Linear Actuator Based on StepSERVO™ Integrated Motor


    Applied Motion Products is pleased to announce the introduction of a closed-loop linear actuator that offers greater acceleration rates, shorter move times and higher throughput than conventional step motor-based linear actuators. Creating peak torques up to 50% higher than holding torque, TBSM11 Linear Actuators accelerate and decelerate faster, making them ideal for high throughput processes that require linear actuators to start and stop quickly.

  • Applied Motion Welcomes Jesse Barr


    Applied Motion is thrilled to announce our new employee Jesse Barr to the team as Application Engineer – Servo Products. Before joining Applied Motion, Jesse worked in industrial automation and aerospace industries. There he worked on a variety of servo controlled applications across North America supporting new and existing applications that ranged from a single axis to over 70 axes of motion. Before beginning his professional career, Jesse received a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

  • Live Webinar - How to Create Motion with Servo Motors and Drives


    Servo systems need not be complex. From the initial step of selecting servo components to the final steps of creating motion, the process can be broken down into a set of easily identifiable instructions. Whether you’re new to servo systems or a servo veteran, this webinar will provide you with necessary information to make your next servo project a success.

  • UL Recognized Motors and Drives


    Applied Motion Products is pleased to offer a range of motors and drives that are UL recognized. With this recognition, customers can feel confident using these products in applications that require UL and CSA certification.

  • ATX West Trade Show 2018


    Visit Applied Motion Products in booth #4489 at the ATX West trade show in Anaheim, CA, February 6-8, 2018. The expostion and conference takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center and draws together over 20,000 engineering and manufacturing professionals for three days of immersive advanced manufacturing and automation design.

  • 9-Pin Feedback Connectors for J Series Servo Motors


    This article is about J Series Servo Motors from Applied Motion Products and a newly introduced variant of the motor design that comes with a 9-pin feedback connector instead of the more familiar 15-pin feedback connector. The details below include how to identify the 9-pin connector, why we’ve introduced this variant, and how it affects the product line.

  • New Capacitive Encoders for Stepper Motors


    Applied Motion Products, Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of a new encoder feedback option for NEMA 17, 23, and 24 frame stepper motors. These new incremental encoders are built upon a technology that utilizes capacitive reactance to generate digital signals for speed and position feedback in the motor and drive system. Capacitive encoders offer advantages over other encoder types, including resistance to environmental contaminants such as dust and oil. Modular capacitive encoders also have thin profiles and are competitively priced.

  • What's the Difference Between Optical and Capacitive Encoders?


    We offer different incremental encoder options for our stepper motors. Encoders are used to provide feedback to the motor drive or controller and improve overall performance of the step motor system. The following provides a summary of those encoder options.

  • New Connector Options for TSM11 StepSERVO Integrated Motors


    To accommodate customers' requests, we have created a new add-on connector module for TSM11 integrated motors that breaks out the communication terminals into two connectors that are separate from the power and I/O connector. These separate communication connectors make for much easier daisy-chain connections on RS-485 and Modbus RTU networks.

  • Reduced List Prices on Drives and Integrated Steppers


    We are pleased to announce reduced pricing on a number of Stepper Drives and Integrated Stepper Motors from our standard offering. These products are ideal for applications requiring advanced microstepping performance using basic step & direction control signals. In most cases these drives and integrated steppers can be setup and configured with on-board dip or rotary switches alone; no software required.
