MOONS’ Stepper Motor PowerPlus Technology

MOONS’ PowerPlus technology provides 25% to 40% more torque across the entire speed range of the motor. The increased torque is a result of higher motor efficiency, and is available without increasing the drive voltage or current. Typical Applications: Machine Upgrades: Changing existing machines to PowerPlus motors can be a quick path to new models with improved performance. Because […]

The Advantages of Capacitive vs Optical Encoders

PID SYSTEM MODIFICATIONS An important aspect of motion control is system optimization and loop time modification. When a system’s response needs to be modified due to irregular or undesired behavior, the correct change can be difficult to find. Either the system PID times need to be adjusted with timely code review and modification, or the line count (resolution) can be adjusted. With […]

Basic Structure & Operation of Step Motor

• Basic Structure • Operating Principles In response to each individual control pulse and direction signal, the drive applies power to the motor windings to cause the rotor to take a step forward, a step in reverse, or hold in position. For example, in a 1.8 degree two phase step motor: When both phases are energized with DC current, […]
