Hybrid & PM Stepping motors

<strong>Hybrid stepping motors</strong>, as well as <strong>permanent magnet stepping motors </strong> are built of a fixed stator and a rotating rotor within.

Due to different aligned magnetic fields you get a strong rotating field, which spins the rotor. By turning on and off individual coils the motors can be positioned in an easy way and control of speed and direction of the rotation is enabled.

This makes it a <strong>cost effective solution with high precision in positioning. </strong>

There are two different types of industrial stepping motors:

<h3><strong>permanent magnet stepping motors:</strong></h3>
<ul class=”list–elements”>
<li><img class=”alignleft wp-image-1737″ src=”×225.jpg” alt=”IMAG0160″ width=”147″ height=”154″ />The rotor is made of a cylindric permanent magnet with radial magnetisation. The step angles are higher due to the natural limitation of magnetic poles in parallel.

<strong>size</strong>: diameter 10mm to 57mm
<strong>step angle</strong>: 7,5°, 15° and 18°
<strong>holding torque</strong>: 1,5mNm to 120mNm</li>
Die <strong>Advantages</strong>of using permanent magnet stepping motors (PM steppers):
<li>more favorable soltution</li>
<li>high overall moment of the rotos</li>
Therefore you only have a limited amount of step angles to choose from.

<ul class=”list–elements”>
<li><img class=”alignleft wp-image-2469 ” src=”×225.png” alt=”” width=”162″ height=”164″ />A rotor made of axial permanent magnets with cogged caps mounted at the end. North pole and south pole are alternating.
This enables smaller step angles.<strong>size</strong>: 20mm to 130mm
<strong>step angles</strong>: 0,9°, 1,8° and 3,6°
<strong>holding torque</strong>: 16mNm to 50Nm</li>
<strong>Hybrid stepping motors</strong> are the most used form of stepping motors worldwide.

The advantages of using <strong>hybrid stepping motors: (hybriid steppers)</strong>:
<li>high torque</li>
<li>exact step angles</li>
But with hybrid stepping motors you also have to consider magnetic losses.

Industrial Ethernet Smart Motor

The SmartMotor ™ is a fully integrated motor with smart distributed control over Industrial Ethernet, Class 6 “MT2” SmartMotorTM models SM23166MT2 and SM34166MT2. These SmartMotor™ products come equipped with two Industrial Ethernet ports, and they can be ordered to support EtherNet/IP™, PROFINET® or EtherCAT® networks.

This product release marks a critical milestone in the ongoing development of the Class 6 Industrial Ethernet motor line by providing:

  • Onboard controls allow for distributed controls across the machine
  • Combitronic™ technology over Ethernet (-EIP option only) allowing any SmartMotor to communicate with other SmartMotors and share resources utilizing UDP Combitronic™ protocol in parallel with the EtherNet/IP network
  • USB port for programming, configuration and diagnostics
  • SD Card slot for program storage and loading application-specific parameters
  • Internal brake option for vertical applications
  • IP67 is standard for wet/washdown environments
  • And much more

The motors provide an integrated drive and controller, which reduces wiring, increases reliability, simplifies installation and reduces setup time. Plus, the Class 6 motors incorporate high-end, high-speed processors for exceptional performance.


Our experts look forward to working with you in implementing a SmartMotor ™ into your application.


Profinet Library for Siemens PLC Integration

Schneider IMS – “Siemens PLC Integration”

Profinet Library Enhances LMD Interoperability

Announcing the release of a new Automation Library for improved control of industrial devices and motion control components over Profinet networks. The library add-on instructions (AOI) enhance the capabilities of Schneider Electric Motion’s Lexium MDrive® (LMD) products by providing executable code blocks to speed interface with popular Profinet PLCs.

The AOI reduces communications overhead by decreasing the work of integrating Lexium MDrive all-in-one motor and electronics products into new and existing PLC programs.

Motion is controlled over networks with functions including

  • relative move
  • absolute move
  • jogging
  • homing
  • read inputs and write outputs.


Our specialists are pleased to be able to provide you with excellent advice and service.
