New 2 Phase Microstepping Motor And Driver Package
Torrance, CA - ORIENTAL MOTOR USA CORP. introduces the new CMK series 2 phase step motor and microstepping driver packages. This RoHS compliant series combines a compact light weight microstep driver (0.11 pounds) with either a 0.9 degree-per-step or a 1.8 degree-per-step 2 phase hybrid step motor.
The newly designed Oriental Motor compact 24 volt dc board level driver is able to divide the 2-phase motor's basic step angle of 1.8 degree-per-step by a maximum of 16 microsteps per step to achieve 0.1125 degree-per-step without the use of a reduction mechanism or other mechanical elements. This results in reduced audible noise and vibration of your equipment. The driver is 62% lighter and has 41% less installation area than the Oriental Motor conventional driver.
