Stepper Motors FAQ

If you need more information about stepper motors, we’ve got you covered with these FAQs.

A stepper motor is a type of DC brushless motor that converts electrical pulses into discrete mechanical movements. It consists of a rotor and stator, which use magnetic fields to move the rotor in small step angles.

Because of their ability to accurately control motion, stepper motors are popular in precision applications such as 3D printing, machine tools, robotics, and medical equipment. They offer precise positioning control and can be used in open or closed-loop systems.

Stepper motors are available in a variety of sizes and motor currents. They may be analog or digital – sensorless brushless motors or sensor-controlled brushless motor systems.

A stepper motor phase works by converting electrical pulses into mechanical movement. When an electric current is applied to the motor’s stator coils, the rotor advances in steps, according to the number of pulses given. Each pulse causes the rotor to move a certain distance and then stop at its new position. This process is repeated until the desired motion has been achieved. When power is removed from the motor, the rotor stays at its current holding torque and position unless another pulse is applied.

Stepper motors can come in multiple configurations. Read the list below for more details on each of the most popular.

  • Unipolar Stepper Motors: This type of stepper motor utilizes a six-wire interface, allowing for a center tap within each of the windings within the motor. This allows for higher precision control of the motor across the speed range. This interface can be available in any stepper technology.
  • Bipolar Stepper Motors: This type of stepper motor utilizes a four-wire interface, enabling efficient control of the stepper motor. This is the most common interface for stepper motors, whether PM steppers, hybrid steppers, or high torque steppers.
  • Permanent Magnet Stepper Motors: These systems’ rotors are constructed with permanent magnets that interact with the electromagnets of the stator to generate rotation and maximum torque.
  • Hybrid and High Torque Stepper Motors: Hybrid steppers feature permanent magnets on their rotors and have specially energized windings that produce higher torque than other stepper motor types. This type of motor is used for applications requiring very high accuracy levels.

Stepper motors are often used in applications that require precise motion control and positioning. These BLDC motor applications are many – 3D printers, robotic arms, and computer numerical control (CNC) machines, to name a few.

They are also popular for driving kinematic mechanism assemblies used in car manufacturing, pick and place machines, packaging machinery, labeling equipment, and industrial printing presses.

Servo motors and DC stepper motors are two types of electromechanical devices used to drive or control motion in a wide variety of applications. The primary difference between servo and stepper motors is the way in which they generate torque. Servo motors and coreless DC motors rely on feedback from an encoder or other sensors to accurately measure and control rotor position.

On the other hand, step motors use digital motor controls to generate pulses that move their rotor in incremental steps, allowing for precise motion without needing feedback.
