November 2, 2018 - SureStep series high-torque industry-standard NEMA 14, 17, 23, and 34 stepper motors now provide holding torque from 8 to 1288 oz-in. The smaller frame size NEMA 14 motors (1.4" wide) are available in single and dual shaft versions.
The SureStep family has options for open loop control (no encoder), position monitoring (external encoder feedback), and position verification (integrated motor/drives with internal encoder). Replacement and optional encoders are available for standalone dual-shaft motors and standard integrated motor/drives in all NEMA 14, 17, and 23 sizes.
Fixed resolution encoders are available in 400 pulses per revolution (ppr) and 1000 ppr; configurable encoders allow resolution selection from 48 to 4096 ppr (the default is 400 ppr). A free downloadable configuration utility autodetects the encoder and allows ppr selection.
Step motor inertia dampers smooth out steps in a typical step motor. The dampers also reduce resonance and possible micro oscillations when moving from step to step and can be used as a hand wheel to directly rotate the position of the rotor when power is removed from the motor.
