Nippon Pulse 55mm Stepper Motor for High Torque Applications
Press release date: July 14, 2011
The PF55 stepper motor is available with both unipolar and bipolar windings. With a unipolar winding, the PF55 stepper offers a holding torque of 120N, while a bipolar winding provides 150N of holding torque. In a full-step (2-2) excitation mode, the PF55 has 48 steps per revolution, a rated voltage of 5 and 12V, inductance between 12 and 37mH, and resistance between 5 and 36 ohms.
The PF55 stepper motor also comes in a gearhead model with 20 different ratio options, ranging from 6/25 to 1/300. These gearhead motors provide maximum torques of 400, 700, and 1000mNom. All variations of the PF55 motor are also available with a connector.
Nippon Pulse PF55 motors are currently being used in liquid dispensing devices, valve control machines, torque metrology instruments, printing machines, and medical diagnostic systems.
