AutomationDirect announces the addition of new stepper motors, encoders and inertia dampers to the SureStep system of step motor control.

SureStep series high-torque industry-standard NEMA 14, 17, 23, and 34 stepper motors now provide holding torque from 8 to 1288 ounces per inc. The new smaller frame size NEMA 14 motors are available in single and dual shaft versions.

The SureStep family has options for:

  • Open loop control (no encoder)

  • Position monitoring (external encoder feedback)

  • Position verification (integrated motor/drives with internal encoder)

Fixed resolution encoders are available in 400 and 1000 pulses per revolution, while new step motor inertia dampers smooth out steps in a typical step motor, resulting in a quieter and smoother motion when rotating between steps.
