A hybrid stepper motor is a type of electric motor that combines the best features of both permanent magnet and variable reluctance motors. It has increased efficiency, torque, and speed while also having low power consumption.
Hybrid stepper motors can be found in many applications, such as medical, aerospace, and robotics. In the medical field, hybrid stepper motors are used in surgical robots to perform precise movements for surgeries.
PM stepper motors are typically used for applications that require low-cost, low-precision output. They have a wider step angle than hybrid and high torque stepper motors, making them easier to manufacture and less precise. The output power from a PM stepper is much lower than the hybrid or high torque models.
Hybrid stepper motors use a combination of permanent magnets and variable reluctance motors, allowing for more precise control over the speed and torque output. They are also more efficient than permanent stepper motors as they generate less heat.
You can expect a well-built and properly maintained hybrid stepper motor to last between 7,000 and 20,000 hours of use.
Hybrid and high torque stepper motors from TelcoMotion are valued by the industry for their reliability and consistency of operation. The accuracy of a hybrid stepper motor is determined by the number of steps per revolution, with higher steps per revolution providing greater levels of control and precision. This is ideal for applications in robotics, where accuracy is paramount
