Oriental Motor now sells a new PKP Series stepper motor. The offering includes a 51-mm (2.0-in.) frame size harmonic gearhead for the 42-mm (1.65-in.) PKP Series 2-phase Flat Type motor.
This new combination compliments the 60 mm (2.36 in.) PKP Series Flat Type which is available with a Harmonic gearhead or round shaft.
Both frame sizes offer 50:1 or 100:1 gear ratios.
The 2-phase Flat Type is an ultra-compact and light weight entry to the PKP Series of stepper motors and is available in two frame sizes; 1.65 in. (42 mm) or 2.36 in. (60 mm) frame size. The Flat Type PKP Series stepper motor installs in a narrow space due to its flat profile design where conventional stepper motors would not fit. This makes the Flat Type an ideal solution for robotic applications that require a low profile motor with high position accuracy and repeatability of a Harmonic gearhead.
The new PKP Series stepper motors now uses neodymium magnet in its rotor design, which allows for lower vibration compared to the original PKP Series motors. For the optimal results, use the new PKP stepper motors with their respective CVD bipolar driver.
