With MOONS’ advanced stepper drive technology, each stepper motor can be operated under various control modes. The chart below shows motor configured as while the X1 input is ON, the motor will rotate by one step in CW direction. When the X2 input is turned ON, the motor will rotate by one step inthe other direction. This often eliminates the need for speed reduction gearboxes, reduces costs and saves space. The operation of step motors is controlled through electrical pulses that the drive converts to current flowing through the windings of the motor.

Skip to content Skip to navigation menu. This requires a drive with eight electronic switches. RoHS UL Find out that, and more, here. Brake type steppers are wildly used in vertical axis application. In a unipolar motor there are two windings on each phase.

As shown by the following graph: Hybrid stepper motors provide excellent performance in areas of torque, speed, and step resolution.

Review the three basic types of step motors and understand how these simple yet powerful devices create rotary motion.

Stepper Motors IPC

The maximum torque the motor can hold in place with rated DC current, is the rated holding torque. In this example, it moves 0.

In brush type motors, commutation is done electromechanically via the brushes and commutator. MOONS’ stepper drive accepts all types of control signals including digial, analog and Industrial network communications. HB motors come in different types including the basic typeencoder type, IP65 typeIntegrated type with drive and controllerbrake type and geared type.


The length of rotation is proportional to sstepper number of pulses as well as the speed is proportional to the pulse frequency. Typically, step angles for a hybrid stepper motor range from to steps per revolution.

Stepper Drives – AC/DC Microstep Drives – MOONS’

The two windings on each phase are connected in opposite directions. MOONS’ unipolar and bipolar hybrid stepper motors include standard hybrid stepper motorsPowerPlus hybrid stepper motors and high precision hybrid stepper motors and smooth hybrid stepper motors. To meet the most demanding applicatons.

Omons requires a drive with only four electronic switches. If the current in the other phase had been reversed, the motor would move 1 step 1. They are widely being used in various application for position and speed via all kinds of control signals such as digital, analog, communication etc.

This angle is called “basic step angle. Stepper motors, with their ability to produce high torque at a low speed while minimizing vibration, are ideal for applications requiring quick positioning over a short distance. The motor moves in steps as the current in each winding is reversed. When the power is accidentally cut off due to power outage or other unexpected event, the electromagnetic brake holds the load in position to prevent it from dropping or moving.

J is the rotational inertia of motor rotor plus the load, q is the angle of each step, it equals the step angle of stepping motor when motor runs in full step. Basic Type A basic model that is easy to use and designed with a balanced set of functions and characteristics. This angle is called “basic step angle. Phase current is reversed by turning on alternate windings on the same phase.


Compared to hybrid stepper motors, can stack stepper motors have a simpler design.

The availability of all options can also be combined together as the most strpper and compact motion control unit, for example, MOONS’ can offer encoder and geared type, IP65 integrated with drive, controller and encoder, all combinations are avalible moon request. The relationship of the stepper motor’s rotation rotation angle of themotor output shaft and pulse number is expressed as follows: We always work with you together to get your creative ideas or innovative products to go to market as fast as possible.

In lift and similar applications, an electromagnetic brake type motor is required. Small torque fluctuations, smooth running, suitable for the pursuit of quiet and smooth running applications. MOONS’ designs and manufactures three main types of stepper motors:
