Oriental Motor USA: All-in-one stepper motor, driver, controller
To simplify motion control, the PKA Series from Oriental Motors combines a 0.72° All-in-One Stepper Motor, Driver, and Controller to provide superior noise and vibration reduction.
This All-in-One 0.72° stepper motor features a built-in controller (stored data) type, microstepping driver, and high performance motor integrated into one compact package.
There is no wiring needed between the controller, driver, and motor. Since there is a built-in controller, there is no need for a pulse generator.
A positioning function is built in, ensuring that the traveling amount, speed, and other operating data are retained in the motor. The All-in-One is also equipped with a variety of other operation functions in addition to the positioning operation, such as continuous operation, and a return-to-home operation. This contributes to a reduced load on the programmable controller and a simplified program.
The PKA Series is DC input and available in 42 mm (1.65 in.) and 60 mm (2.36 in.) frame sizes.
The PKA is also equipped with an interface that connects to various master control systems, and 2 motor frame sizes.
