High torque stepper motors offer 1.8°/step resolution

28 May 2014

The high-torque PKP Series stepper motor from Oriental Motor offers a resolution of 200 steps per revolution (1.8°/step) and runs cooler.

The PKP Series generates high torque - some 1.2 to 1.7 times that of the standard PK Series of same size. The advantages of using a high-torque motor include:

- Lower power consumption and lower heat generation: 
If the running current of a PKP Series motor is decreased and the motor is operated at the same torque as the PK Series standard type, current consumption and temperature can be reduced.
- Power consumption can be reduced by 20 percent (at low speed)
- Temperature rise can be reduced: Temperature increases of 10°C and more are suppressed
- Downsizing: using a PKP Series motor, which has the same torque as the PK Series standard type, the motor can be downsized. The motor can be downsized, even if the torque is the same.
- SH geared type:
This geared type is effective for reducing speed, increasing torque, achieving higher resolution and low vibration. The SH geared PKP Series has a broader permissible speed range than the SH geared PK Series, and is also easier to use.

A dedicated driver is required separately to operate the motor.
