August 9, 2018 – AutomationDirect, a distributor of industrial automation products for electrical control systems, has added integrated motors and drives to its SureStep line of stepper motion control products.

Integrated stepper motor/drives save panel space, require less wiring and are less expensive. The new SureStep integrated drive/motor units provide accurate micro-stepping position and speed control for smooth motion and step response and require only two components: the power supply and integrated stepper motor/drive. Standard motor/drives and advanced motor/drives are available. Existing SureStep systems require four components including power supply, stepper drive, motor extension cable and motor.

SureStep advanced integrated motor/drives have available torque from 54 to 340 oz-in and software-selectable resolutions ranging from 200 steps per revolution. The advanced drives can operate with traditional high-speed inputs, but can also be commanded via 0–5V analog input. An internal indexer can accomplish point-to-point moves controlled via ASCII communication.

Free SureMotion Pro drive configuration software is available for advanced integrated motor/drives (not required for standard drives) to configure and set up the drive. A status monitor screen aids in troubleshooting alarms and faults.
