 STEPPING MOTORS & DRIVES
FULL, HALF, QUARTER & MINISTEPPING

-------------------------------------------DRIVES-------------------------------------------

RTA is a leading European manufacturer of bipolar chopper stepper motor drives for two phase hybrid 200 step/rev motors. Drives range from 0.75 Amp @ 24V upto 14 Amps @ 240V and are available in several mounting versions such as Eurorack, OEM and panel mounting (illustrated). The drives are available in resolutions selectable from the basic 200 step/rev (full step) to 12800 pulse/rev (microstep). They are designed for high reliability motion control in industrial environments and are backed by over 30 years experience in stepper motor drive design.

The drives are easily controlled by step and direction inputs from a computer or programmable logic controller. Applications include laboratory instrumentation, back stop positioning, CNC retrofitting, labelling machines, packaging machines, XY tables, pick & place and testing machines.

Our E.M.C statement applies to the installation of these products. At the time of web site publication, all RTA drives and SD stepper motors claim European CE and Australian C-tick (now called RCM) conformity. The CE compliance is important for machine manufacturers seeking clients in European countries.

 

 

 

 



New & Innovative RTA Products

IP65 Stepper Motors


The 'SP' series of stepper motors have IP65 protection for both shaft seal and electrical connection, making them ideal for environments with high levels of water and dust. These are ideal where motors are exposed to cooling fluid in metal cutting machines or water when food packaging machines are periodically cleaned. Both 23 and 34 frame sized motors are capable of operating with high voltage mains powered drives or DC low voltage drives.

Gearheads for Stepper Motors
 


RTA is now supplying Italian made planetary gearboxes that mount directly onto selected 23 and 34 frame stepper motors. All models have 12 arcminute backlash and have IP64 protection. Ratios of 5:1, 9:1 and 10:1 are available. The gearboxes have radial and axial shaft loads far exceeding those of a stepper motor. These produce much higher reduction ratios and output torques than belt and pulley reductions.

----------------------------------------------STEPPING MOTORS----------------------------------------------

The SD stepper motors are 2 phase hybrid motors which have been selected for optimum performance when used with RTA stepper drives. They can only be supplied with matching RTA drives. They are available in 17, 23, 34 and 42 frame sizes and are well suited to small to medium size machine automation applications. The 23 and 34 frame motors are supplied with 8 flying leads for high flexibility on drive connection. This enables the user to connect motors in parallel, series and unipolar configuration. The 42 frame motors have a terminal box and screw terminal connections. The 17 frame motors have 6 flying leads. SD stepper motors also have CE and C-tick approval.

The motors are nominally 200 steps/rev (1.8 degree steps), although our drives are also capable of running in half, quarter or ministep resolution providing 400, 800 and 4000 steps/rev. Depending on the electronic drive used, the steppers are capable of speeds from 0 to 3000 rpm, although torque is highly speed dependant. For further explanations and notes on stepper motor use see contact the office for our Stepper Motor Applications Guide. We are able to calculate motor torque required for a specific application and mechanics (see Motor Sizing Forms in Technical Notes for details). All stepper motor models are to be sold only as a sets with matching RTA stepper drives.

STANDARD SERIES


'H' SERIES MOTORS
 
The 'H' series have the same flange size as the standard series but have higher torque, higher efficiency and lower noise and vibration.The higher torque is achieved by higher efficiency magnetic materials. The rotor inertia is also higher, making them better able to handle high inertia loads. They are ideal in applications where a standard motor  of the same size has insufficient torque or safety margin. The cost however is higher than the standard series.


IP65 MOTORS
 
The 'SP' series of stepper motors have IP65 protection for both shaft seal and electrical connection, making them ideal for environments with high levels of water and dust. These are ideal where motors are exposed to cooling fluid in metal cutting machines or water when food packaging machines are periodically cleaned. Both 23 and 34 frame sized motors are capable of operating with high voltage mains powered drives or DC low voltage drives.


BRAKE MOTORS
 
The 'B' series of stepper motors are fitted with a failsafe brake on the rear shaft. The brake normally locks the motor shaft which is released when a 24 VDC supply is applied to the brake. This is useful when motors are used with vertical loads so the load does not backdrive the motor if power fails.

ENCODER MOTORS
 
The 'EM' series a shaft encoder fitted to the rear motor shaft. This can be used to check actual motor position against theoretical position. Some motion controllers will also allow a stepper motor to be controlled like a servomotor using motors with encoders attached. This range is available with both 23 and 34 frame size motors for operation with both AC mains powered drives and low voltage DC power drives. Encoder resolution is 400 pulses/rev.
