When purchasing stepper motor drivers, also called controllers, several factors must be taken into consideration. Buyers should make sure that the motor is compatible with the driver, as there are several different types. The number of wires in the motor determines whether a bipolar or unipolar driver is required. Maximum current input and output of the motor also impact which servo driver to purchase, as do features such as step modes, step frequency, and protection circuitry. There are numerous types of stepper drives available, each with advantages and disadvantages. Choosing the right kind of driver depends on the type of task the stepper motor will be applied to, as well as the step mode requirements. Here recommend you Brand hybrid Stepper Motor by Fasttobuy.com.
The Leadshine Stepper drive’s performance comes from its powerful 32-bit DSP processor and associated control algorithms. These achieve smooth performance at low speeds by significantly minimising fluctuations from the desired motor speed. The leadshine am882 can also calculate the natural system frequency and apply a damping function to eliminate resonance. This yields higher speed and better motor performance; it also optimises torque and eliminates mid-range instability. And by cutting stepper motor heating losses, the driver brings energy saving benefits, together with reduced maintenance costs.
System set-up is said to be fast and simple due to the motor auto-tuning and parameter auto-configuration technology. This allows automatic compensation for the unique characteristics of any motor connected to the drive. The motor can be sized from NEMA 17 to NEMA 34 diameter due to wide input voltage coverage and a programmable output current range from 0.5-5.6A. Either two- or four-phase motors can be connected. The drive has a programmable resolution, from full step to 102,400 steps per resolution. The stepper driver’s Multistep function allows this full microstepping resolution to be applied to a standard 200-step motor, so system performance becomes smoother.

Stepper drives always offer the cheapest solution, so use a stepper wherever appropriate. Remember these major considerations: First, does the system require position confirmation? Second: The wrong stepper drive can cause ringing, resonance, and poor low-speed performance. Third, during high speeds, stepper motors can whine. Because stepper drives have a high pole count, hysteresis and eddy current losses are also common at high speed; for these reasons, a stepper is not recommended for continuous operation above 2,000 rpm. Finally, because full current is needed to produce holding torque, step motors can get hot at a standstill.
