New line of stepper motion-control products released

motors and drives

IDEC

This product line includes controllers, stepper motors, an integrated controller/drive, an integrated drive/stepper motor, and an integrated controller/drive/stepper motor (photo). The integrated controller/drive and drive/stepper motor units save space and money, and simplify installation, by combining multiple components into a single unit. The integrated controller/drive/stepper motor units offer space savings, cost effectiveness and system simplification. As compared to more complex servo-motion control systems, steppers are a simpler technology, and require no tuning or adjustment. They also have excellent torque at low speeds, don’t require position feedback, and have very low maintenance requirements, says the company. These characteristics make them a suitable fit in a variety of applications, including pharmaceutical, printing, packaging, material handling and semiconductor industries. —­ IDEC Corp., Sunnyvale, Calif.
