AutomationDirect has launched the SureStep™ family of products, an open-loop stepping system that includes four standard motors, a “one-size-fits-all” step motor drive and a power supply. With holding torques from 83 oz-inch to 434 oz-inch in NEMA size 17, 23 or 34 frames, the motors handle a wide range of automation applications. They operate on 2.8 A per phase (size 17 motor uses 2.0 A), while their square frame style produces high torque and allows the motors to achieve the best torque-to-volume ratio. The drive operates any of the four standard motors and features standard +5 VDC optically isolated logic inputs for interfacing with DirectLOGIC PLCs or other controllers/indexers. A 9-position DIP switch is used to set up the drive; no software or add-on resistors are required for configuration. The standard 32 VDC, 4-amp linear power supply operates at least two SureStep systems of any size with an auxiliary +5 VDC regulated supply to facilitate DirectLOGIC PLCs and stepping motor drive interfaces. Prices for the new SureStep motors range from $19 to $99. The microstepping drive is priced at $149, and the power supply is $99.For more information on this product, Request Product Catalog CD or Contact AutomationDirect or visit their website at
