PS42 Stepper Actuator IMDC
PRO Series

Summary Details

Size: 42mm or Nema 17, 1.8°
Holding Torque: to 44 Ncm (62 oz-in)
Speed: to 35 RPS (2100 RPM)

Compact. Programmable.
The ElectroCraft integrated motor drive stepper linear actuator is a leap forward in actuator technology. This is linear motion in its most compact form, enabling users to reduce installation costs and machine footprint by installing simpler control and cabling architectures. The integrated PRO Series drive makes the PS42 highly configurable, incorporating the full range of sequence control, I/O and communications options. The PS42 is available with a range of 1/4 inch standard threads, providing resolutions of up to .00031 in (.00787 mm) in full step open-loop mode with a 200 PPR stepper motor with even higher resolutions available in micro-stepping and closed-loop position control mode. Other thread options are available on request. Versions with ballscrews and special material parts are available for custom application-specific designs.
