  1. stepping motor

    A stepper motor, also known as step motor or stepping motor, is a brushless DC electric motor that divides a full rotation into a number of equal steps. The motor's position can be commanded to move and hold at one of these steps without any position sensor for feedback (an open-loop controller), as long as the motor is correctly sized to the application in respect to torque and speed. Switched reluctance motors are very large stepping motors with a reduced pole count, and generally are closed-loop commutated.


  1. stepping motor

    A stepping motor, also known as a stepper motor, is an electromechanical device which converts electronic signals into mechanical movement. It operates by dividing a full rotation into a large number of steps, allowing for precise control of rotation without the need for any feedback mechanism. Each step corresponds to a small change in the direction and intensity of the electrical signal, allowing the motor to hold any given position within its rotation. This makes stepper motors ideal for use in applications that require accurate positioning and speed control.
