Hybrid Stepping Motor
A stepper motor or step motor or stepping motor is a brushless DC electric Motor that divides a full rotation into a number of equal steps. The motor's Position can then be commanded to move and hold at one of these steps Without any position sensor for feedback (an open-loop controller), as long As the motor is carefully sized to the application in respect to torque and Speed.
Stepper motors, with their ability to produce high torque at a low speed while Minimizing vibration, are ideal for applications requiring quick positioning Over a short distance. Stepping technology allows for the use of an open-Loop controller – simplifying machine design and lowering total cost Compared to a servo motor system.
