High-efficiency Stepping Motors

PKE high torque, high efficiency stepping motors are designed to provide maximum torque while creating efficiencies currently not available in the stepper motor market.

Use of new materials, advanced stator and rotor design and construction methods enable the PKE stepping motors to produce 1.2 to 1.5 times more torque than a conventional stepping motor, while significantly reducing the power loss common in stepping motors, says the vendor. Key benefits of the higher efficiency are said to be lower heat generation (78%) by the motor, constant duty operation and up to 40% less power consumption when compared to a conventional stepping motor. The PKE stepping motor is available with a motor frame size of 1.65 in. sq and three stack lengths of 1.3 in. (PKE243x), 1.54 in. (PKE244x) and 1.85 in. (PKE245x). Output torque ranges from 34 oz-in for the PKE243A-L with unipolar winding up to 77.8 oz-in for the PKE245DA-L bipolar winding motor.
