Webinar: Understanding Step Motors and Closed Loop Feedback

This webinar was recorded live on Thursday, October 5, 2017. Click below to watch on demand.



Step motors are popular because they are low cost and easy to use. But experienced users know that the first time you violate the laws of physics and demand too much torque from the motor, the step motor will stall without warning. By adding an encoder to the system, step motors can be operated closed loop and traditional limitations can be avoided.  Attend this webinar to understand how encoders are used to improve the performance of step motors, from the most basic position verification methods to the most advanced servo control techniques. Every user of step motors will learn something useful in this presentation.

After completing this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Differentiate the most common encoder feedback functions available for step motor systems
  • Determine whether closed loop control would be beneficial to you
  • Select the best feedback function for your application
  • Explain the benefits of closed loop stepper control to your colleagues and customers
