Press Release Summary:

July 26, 2012 - Compatible with 2-phase step motors, Model STR2 operates in either Step and Direction or Pulse/Pulse control mode, which can be selected by moving jumper located under cover of drive. Unit can microstep up to 20,000 steps/rev with 1.8° step motor, and can also microstep motor when command pulses are low resolution. With anti-resonance feature, Model STR2 electronically damps motor and system resonances for optimal motor smoothness and torque.

Advanced Microstepping Drive from Servo2Go

Press release date: July 19, 2012

The STR2 stepper drive is an ultra compact, digital step & direction drive, great for OEM applications requiring basic step & direction control of a 2-phase step motor. The STR2 outputs up to 2.2 A/phase to the step motor, and is compatible with a variety of 2-phase step motors that have been selected to optimize performance of both the drive and motor.

The STR2 drive features advanced microstepping performance and sophisticated current control with anti-resonance. Anti-resonance electronically damps motor and system resonances, which improves motor smoothness and torque over a wide speed range.

Each STR2 step motor drive operates in either Step & Direction or Pulse/Pulse control mode. Selecting between these two modes is done by moving a jumper located under the cover of the drive. Each STR2 drive can microstep up to 20,000 steps/rev with a 1.8º step motor (1/100 step), and can even microstep the step motor when the command pulses are low resolution. This feature is called Microstep Emulation. All drive setup is done via dip switches on the side of the drive, including motor selection, running current, idle current, and step resolution.
