Nippon Pulse releases 20-millimetre linear stepper motor
June 12, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Nippon Pulse has introduced its smallest linear stepper motor, the PFL20 Linearstep, a high-thrust tin-can linear actuator with a 20-mm diameter and a bipolar winding.
PFL20 is RoHS-compliant, has a 30/60 mm effective stroke, and can reach 6 N of force at 200 pps.
With 24 steps per revolution, the lead screw has a 1.2-mm thread pitch; the PFL20 also reaches 5V rated voltage, resistance of 33 Ohms/phase and inductance of 12mH/phase.
The structure of Linearstep motors — just a threaded rotor hub and lead screw — helps to save space.
Linearstep motors can be ordered with unipolar or bipolar windings and a variety of usable voltages.
In addition to the 20-mm motor size, this motor is also available in 25-mm (captive or non-captive option) and 35-mm diameter sizes.
Nippon Pulse’s tin-can linear actuators, including the Linearstep, are also available for customization.
