Oriental Motor USA Corp. introduced its CMK Series two-phase step motor and microstepping driver packages. This RoHS compliant series combines a compact, lightweight microstep driver (0.11 pounds) with either a 0.9 degree-per-step or a 1.8 degree-per-step two-phase hybrid step motor. The 24V DC board level driver is able to divide the two-phase motor’s basic step angle of 1.8 degree-per-step by a maximum of 16 microsteps per step to achieve 0.1125 degree-per-step without the use of a reduction mechanism or other mechanical elements. This results in reduced audible noise and vibration of the equipment. The series comes in five frame sizes as well as four motor types.
