Cumming, GA—AutomationDirect has expanded its line of SureStep motion control products. Stepping motors in standard NEMA sizes (17, 23, & 34) now include bi-polar models with output torques ranging from 61 oz-in. to 1291 oz-in. The motors feature a pigtail cable with locking connector for easy hook-up and 200 steps per revolution. The stepping motors are CE compliant and prices start at $17.
Three additional power supplies are also offered for SureStep drives and motors. These unregulated linear power supplies offer full load outputs of 32, 48 and 70 VDC. The power supplies are electronically overload protected and electrically isolated from motor supply output. They feature screw terminal connections, Power-On LED indicators for motor supply and logic power, and have fast acting, 3AG fuses on both input and output. The new unregulated power supplies start at $119.



Two new Advanced Programmable SureStep drives offer more functionality and higher current capability. Software-selectable resolution up to 51,200 steps per revolution provide smoother, more accurate motion and power capability up to 10A per phase. These new drives accept step and direction, CW/CCW pulse inputs, A/B quadrature inputs, 12 bit analog input (analog velocity mode); other features include a discrete speed command (oscillator mode), a joystick mode, and a built-in indexer. The built-in indexer can use serial communications to configure and execute motion profiles on the fly. The drives come with a serial cable for setup and programming and the SureStep Pro Software, also available as a free download. Programmable SureStep drives start at $199.
