PK-M Series sizes 17 and 23 high-torque, hybrid step motors offer step-angle resolutions of 0.9-degrees full step and 0.45-degrees per half step. The motors also maintain holding torques of 22 to 44.4 oz-inches for the size 17 and 54.2 to 187.5 oz-inches for the size 23. The PK-M Series higher-step resolution results in an unloaded step accuracy of 0.05 degrees. Running torques of 20 oz-inches at 2,500 pps are developed for the smallest PK-M model, the PK243M-01BA, and up to 175 oz-inches at 1,100 pps for the largest PK-M family member, the PK268M-03BA.
