  • Stepping Motor α STEP AZ Series Axes Driver MECHATROLINK-Ⅲ Compatible
  • Slave Stepping Motor Drive

    M-II M-III

ORIENTAL MOTOR Co.,Ltd.Updated on:Jan 5, 2022

  • MECHATROLINK-III compatible multi-axis driver to which 2, 3, and 4 axes can be connected.
  • A motor based on a stepper motor that performs a unique hybrid control combining the benefits of open loop control and closed loop control.
  • The motor is equipped with a battery-less multi-rotation absolute encoder. Various merits include operation without a battery, return-to-home or external sensors.
  • Temperature and travel amount can be monitored in addition to basic information such as motor position, speed and load. This information can be used for monitoring status and predictive maintenance of machines.
