The QuickStep series of Stepper motors with integrated electronics represents a major step forward. All the necessary electronics in a stepper system are integrated in the motor itself.
In the past, a traditional motor system has typically been based on a central ontroller unit located remote from the motor.
This configuration however has the negative effect that installation costs are a major part of the total expense of building machinery.
The stepper motor, encoder and electronics are specially developed by JVL so that together they form a closed unit in which the power driver and controller are mounted inside the motor in a closed section.
The advantages of this solution are:
Simple installation. No cables between motor and driver.
EMC safe. Switching noise remains within motor.
Compact. Does not take space in cabinet.
Low-cost alternative to separate step or servo motor and driver.
