SureStep Stepper Drives
SureStep stepping systems provide simple and accurate control of position and speed where open-loop control and cost are considerations. Pulses (or "step" and "direction" signals) from AutomationDirect or other indexers / motion controllers are "translated" by the microstepping drive into precise movement of the stepping motor shaft. SureStep microstepping drives use advanced microstepping technology to smooth the motor motion and stepping response.
Standard SureStep stepper drives
start at $90.00 (STP-DRV-6575)
The advanced drives can operate with traditional high-speed inputs, but can also be commanded via 0–5V analog input. They have an internal indexer that can accomplish point-to-point moves controlled via ASCII communication (SCL commands over RS-232).
Advanced SureStep stepper drives
start at $234.00 (STP-DRV-4850)
