Features and Benefits

We’ve Reinvented the Step Motor

Conventional hybrid stepper motor utilizes a permanent magnet in the rotor. Our patented design uses a ring magnet in the stator instead. This drastically reduces the detent torque (unenergized drag torque) because the magnetic flux path is able to reach over the stator windings and go through only the outer edge of the rotor. Reducing detent torque improves accuracy, smooth operation and reduces noise. Best of all, modifying the magnet location does not change the dynamic torque.

Zen technology significantly reduces vibration without the use of external dampers: this results in extremely smooth and accurate motion.

Extreme accuracy

Z-Series motor maintains ±1.5 arc minutes error under 64x microstepping. Industry average can range from ±4.5 to ±18 arc minutes in 0.9° step motors.


Quiet Operation

By eliminating detent torque, the motor operates substantially quieter than regular hybrid stepper motor.


Vibration can cause serious problems when smooth and precise motion is critical. This is especially the case in the semiconductor industry where assemblies are getting exponentially smaller or medial applications where precision and accuracy could literally be a life or death matter.
