Linear Stepper Motors

Take the following steps to assist you in choosing the best linear stepper motor for your application:

  • Outline the motions that you’re trying to achieve
  • Find the acceleration traverse and deceleration times needed for each movement
  • Calculate the forces needed to move the payload in the above motion profile
  • Find a coil that has a torque curve that provides more force at each speed in your move than is needed to move the payload
  • Select the correct electronics needed to drive the motor
