Stepper Motors

Nanotec (Feldkirchen, Germany) introduced the SC3518 series stepper motors that feature high torque and EMC properties. The 2-phase hybrid stepper motors feature frame size NEMA 14 (35 mm) and a 1.8° step angle; torque is between 0.18 and 0.32 Nm. The motors are connected via an integrated connector that enables easy cable adaption. The two outer pins of the connector are attached to the motor housing. Together with the shielded cable, this creates a shield connection with excellent EMC performance. The motors are available with a shaft end for openloop or sensorless control, or with an integrated optical encoder NOE1 with up to 2,000 increments/rotation.
