Microstepping driver

RoHS compliant version of R208 microstepping driver features a compact design with low power dissipation and automatic current reduction.

Features & benefits

  • Provides up to 2.0 A phase current to any bipolar step motor

  • Micro stepping resolution can be set from full, ½, ¼, and ⅛ step

  • Uses 12 to 24 Vdc power supply to produce constant sinusoidal current waveforms

  • Recognizes step pulses from controller from rising or falling edge

  • Allows changes to amount of holding current applied to motor

Timing belts

Three new high-performance industrial timing belts — Conti SynchroForce CXP, SynchroForce CXA, and the SynchroForce Extreme — are available in four different compounds for three section types.

Features & benefits

  • CXP delivers improved power transmission and wear resistance with its fiberglass tension member and polychloroprene elastomer

  • CXA uses N-Duro compound to increase residual tear strength and lifespan, for slow-running drives where high torques are transmitted

  • Extreme version suits drives with pulsating forces and torques and is based on a refined HNBR polymer for reliable transmission of shock movements

  • Available in pitches of 3, 5, 8, and 14 m and sections STD, HTD, and CTD
