Stepper Servo Motors

Although many designers prefer to relegate stepper motors to the realm of low-cost low-performance technology, a new technique is bringing the step motors a fresh lease of life. This new drive technique is the stepper servo, and it uses the generic stepper motor, yet extracts significantly more performance out of it. The technique requires adding an encoder and operating the motor effectively as a commuted two-phase brushless DC motor. While the inclusion of an encoder makes the stepper servo Read more [...]
