Equally the step motor
controller that you use will have a major impact on the mechanical performance you are able to achieve using the motor. If the controller is not able to deliver more power than the motor can handle then it is unlikely that you will be able to achieve the maximum possible mechanical performance from the motor.
One of the key reasons for this is that a certain controller may be able to deliver full power from one motor but, as the motor stack length is increased that particular motor controller may struggle to get the power into the larger motor coils to deliver the required torque. There are other reasons that can affect this. Why not have a look at our support section for more information on these factors.
As an example of this, our stepper motors with integrated controllers have higher powered controllers the bigger the motors get.
See the table below for an overview of frame sizes.
If your interest in motor sizes was purely academic then we hope we have helped. If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will do our best to help.
Alternatively if you are looking for a motor and aren’t sure which is best for your application then you could start by having a quick look at our standard range.
We offer a range of stepper motors of different sizes which are available in geared or standard format.
As always, if you have any questions about choosing the right motor or the pros and cons of a long stack NEMA 17
versus a short stack NEMA 23 (for example) then you can get in touch with us via online chat, phone or email.
