AutomationDirect: Integrated stepper motors and drives

AutomationDirect adds Integrated motors and drives to its SureStep line of stepper motion control products. Units provide accurate micro-stepping position and speed control for smooth motion and step response and require only two components, power supply, and integrated stepper motor/drive.


Standard motor/drives and Advanced motor/drives are available. Existing SureStep systems require four components including power supply, stepper drive, motor extension cable, and motor.

SureStep advanced integrated motor/drives have available torque from 54 to 340 oz-in and software-selectable resolutions ranging from 200 steps per revolution. The advanced drives can operate with traditional high-speed inputs, but can also be commanded via 0–5V analog input. An internal indexer can accomplish point-to-point moves controlled via ASCII communication.

Free SureMotion Pro drive configuration software is available for Advanced integrated motor/drives (not required for Standard drives) to easily configure and setup the drive, including drive, motion control mode, I/O, and motor. A Status Monitor screen aids in troubleshooting alarms and faults.

SureStep integrated motor/drives start at $97.
