drylin® step motor NEMA23

igus® stepper motors complement drylin® linear axes well. They distinguish themselves by their cost-efficiency, precision and simple control. They work reliably under varied environmental conditions (depending on the selected protection class IP). Due to the standardized power connection the igus® step motors can be connected to the most popular motor controls.

Motor with stranded wires

This motor is the least expensive and the most popular option. The connecting wires for this type come directly from the housing. They are preferably installed in machines and equipment that have an additional housing or are used in clean environments.

Motor with connector plug

Equipped with connector plug, it reaches protection class IP65 (IP: International Protection). The higher the IP protection class, the better the protection against dirt and humidity.

Motor with connector plug and encoder

The encoder sends signals from the motor to the control unit. With the encoder it can be controlled if the desired linear motion was executed precisely. Encoder = higher reliability of the equipment.

Motor with plug, encoder and break

The break can hold the load in place in the case of de-energized motor. This is used as a safety feature in case of power cuts – very recommendable for vertically installed systems.
