LIN Engineering, represented in Australia by Switches Plus Components , has developed the SilverPak 17, Nema size 17, 2-phase, 1.8 degree bipolar step motor with an integrated microstepping driver. The product is now available with a built-in encoder.
The SilverPak 17 features: selectable step resolution from full step, half step, 1/4 step to 1/8 microsteps; optically isolated step, direction and disable inputs; and automatic current reduction with the disable switch. It operates on 12Vdc to 24Vdc and has low power dissipation. The SilverPak 17 offers efficient current control and quiet operation.
This integrated step motor and driver is available in three body lengths: 2.69", 2.92" and 3.24". It is capable of up to 85oz-in of holding torque. The motor's standard front shaft extension length is 0.94" and its standard shaft diameter is 0.1968". Custom lengths and diameters are available upon request. A DB-9 male connector provides power and control connections (a mating connector is provided).
The following features/options are available to you with the built-in encoder: tracks up to 100,000 cycles/sec, 32 to 1024 CPR, max pps 4096, 2 channel quadrature TTL squarewave single-ended outputs and optional index (3rd channel).
