Hurst Manufacturing Now Offering Hybrid Stepper Motors
Series provides low speed precision movement at a competitive price
Princeton, IN, April 10, 2002...When a conventional step motor just won't do, and competitive pricing, greater precision and higher torque density are a necessity; Hurst Manufacturing's new line of Hybrid stepper motors is a step above the ordinary.
Hurst Manufacturing is expanding its traditional 7.5° and 15° step angles offered on its conventional step motors with a new Hybrid stepper series offering a 1.8° step angle (200 steps per revolution) or a .0036° step angle with a microstepping
controller (100,000 steps per revolution). The result is greatly improved precision.
"Our customers were asking for a step motor that was a level above our traditional stepper model in terms of steps per revolution," said Ed Wagner, Senior Manager of Sales & Marketing for Hurst Manufacturing. "We answered their demands with the Hybrid stepper series. The Hybrid stepper is ideal for applications where increased precision and system costs are major concerns for the user."
The Hybrid stepper relies on an electronic controller to determine the number of steps and the direction of the motor. It also offers rapid start, stop and reversal characteristics, coupled with open loop operation, making it the stepper motor of
choice for applications requiring extreme precision including automotive, medical equipment and office automation.
The Hybrid design also provides high torque density, which is desirable when space is a factor. The Hybrid models are available in NEMA standard frame sizes of 17 and 23, with holding torque ranging up to 187 oz-in. Standard windings are four-phase, unipolar. All models offer class B insulation.
"We offer our Hybrid stepper series at a very competitive price," said Wagner. "When you order our Hybrid model, you get a design unmatched in precision and torque density by the conventional stepper motor. For those applications that
require more intense precision at an affordable price, Hurst's Hybrid stepper is the one for the job."
