AutomationDirect has expanded the line of SureStep motion control products. Stepping motors in standard NEMA sizes (17, 23, & 34) now include dual-shaft, bi-polar models with output torques ranging from 61 oz-in. to 1288 oz-in. The motors feature front and rear shafts to allow installation of an encoder, hand crank or a second load onto a motor; a pigtail cable with locking connector allows for easy hook-up. The motors travel 1.8 degrees per step, providing 200 steps per revolution. Backed with a one-year warranty, the stepping motors are CE and RoHS compliant and prices start at $22. The SureStep motors can be controlled by SureStep microstepping drives, programmed with SureStep Pro software.
