Six tips to shrink downtime on conveyor systems and reduce unplanned maintenance.read more
The importance of motion and control can never be understated, it forms the building blocks for many applications in today’s world. We need its precision for robotics and multi-axis CNC machines, it’s ruggedness for conveyors and packaging systems and its overall adaptability to meet the industrial demands of today.
Whether it’s electrical, mechanical, pneumatic or a combination of all three, deployment of effective motion control delivers cost savings, system efficiencies and is the key differential in the competitive industrial world.
In this hub you will find application related content together with insightful commentary and hints and tips for industrial solutions.

Hi can I use the Pictures available above??
@Liu9079 I presume that you are referring to a 200 step, 1.8 deg stepper motor.
Half stepping will indeed move 0.9 degrees but this happens because energising sequence of the windings....
Is it possible for a two phase motor move half step 0.9°? or Can a half step or microstepping able to move 0.9°?
where can i find additional informations ?
- software library
- extensive user guide
- example programs
- Gerber-based PCB layouts
