The new SilverPak 23DE, an integrated Nema 23, high torque, 1.8 degree bipolar step motor, microstepping driver and encoder is designed to reduce overall design time and system cost for a wide array of step motor applications needing high torque. The SilverPak 23DE is 2.25 inches in width and is offered in three body lengths: 2.52, 2.96 and 3.89 inches. Depending on its stack size, the integrated motor/driver is capable of producing up to 294 oz-inch of holding torque. The SilverPak 23DE operates from 15 to 48V dc and the available phase current ranges from 0.3 to 3A peak. This integrated motor/driver combination features jumper configurable step resolutions ranging from 2X microstepping up to 256X microstepping and four selectable damping modes, optically isolated step, direction and disable/enable inputs, under-voltage and over-temperature protection and Pole Damping Technology™ (PDT). Options available with the built-in encoder are tracks up to 100,000 cycles/sec, 32 to 1250 CPR, Max 5000 pps, 2 channel quadrature TTL squarewave single-ended outputs and optional index.
