Features and Benefits

One of the biggest problems Engineers face while designing ever-smaller devices is making things move. As the size of equipment decreases, the demand for smaller motors increase. However, oftentimes small enough motors simply don’t exist, and if they do, they do not provide enough torque or speed to be useful in the application. Often, the only option is to use a large framed motor and shrink everything else around it. Motion control is the real bottleneck which forces Engineers to compromise on the footprint of their device.

Our new 106 Hybrid Stepper Motor is what many Engineers have been waiting for. It solves many of the problems in motion control which prevented equipment from getting smaller.

By applying our experience and our Engineering know-how in the field of Hybrid Stepper Motor technology, we were able to succeed where many have failed. We’ve successfully created a NEMA 6 sized stepper motor that delivers plenty of performance. The 106 outperforms all other motors of similar size on nearly all metrics: it delivers more torque at higher speeds with greater accuracy.

The 106 measures just 16mm in width, making it one of the smallest Hybrid Stepper Motors on the market today. The NEMA 6 frame size means that the 106 Hybrid Stepper Motor can be designed into challenging spots with minimal allotted space. Spots where conventional hybrid stepper motors could not previously fit. This opens up a far broader Engineering flexibility and the ability to design much smaller equipment.

By increasing the step angle from a typical 1.8 degree to 3.46 degree, we are able to achieve nearly twice as much holding torque as closest competing design, and nearly four times more holding torque than a conventional permanent magnet (PM) stepper motor of similar size (which usually top-out at only 0.5 oz-in of holding torque).

A typical PM motor may only deliver 20 steps per revolution, or a step angle of 18 degrees. In comparison, our 3.46 degree motor delivers 5.7 times higher resolution than a typical PM motor. High resolution translates to higher precision. The 106 offers all of the benefits of a hybrid stepper, and none of the drawbacks of a PM motor.

The 106 can deliver similar speed performance of a BLDC motor. By combining the 3.46 degree step angle with our low inertia rotor design, we are able to achieve over 1 oz-in of dynamic torque at 8000 RPM.

 

Applications

The 106 is a perfect candidate for many applications that require tiny motors, especially in the field of medical devices and laboratory automation. Applications that require high degree of precision like miniature pumps, fluid metering and control, and optical sensor controls can take advantage of the 106 motor. The 106 can even be incorporated into motorized hand tools like electronic pipettes, and other handheld devices where Hybrid Stepper Motors were previously impossible to integrate.
