Stepper drive

- Nov 30, 2018 -

Newer design techniques improve stepper motor performance by leveraging the following: built-in feedback, end-of-motion damping (reducing settling time while maximizing accuracy), soft start (reducing jitter on power-up), anti-resonance mode (using For optimized torque, stability and noise reduction - audible or otherwise), idle current reduction (IRC - for reducing motor heating during shutdown) and easy control between full, half and micro steps .

 

While most properly sized stepper motors operate very accurately in open loops in selected step modes, built-in feedback provides additional precision without the cost of external feedback equipment. Microstepping technology produces smoother torque and motion at low speeds, higher resolution at high speeds, and reduced step size from full/half steps.
