Properly driving a NEMA 8 stepper motor requires selecting the correct motor driver to provide the necessary voltage, current, and frequency. This article will discuss how to determine the proper driver for this type of motor.
The first step is to check the important parameters on the motor nameplate. This will be indicated on the nameplate:
In addition to the selection of some basic parameters, it is also necessary to select the appropriate stepper motor driver according to the specific use of the stepper motor. If low vibration or high precision are required, an interpolator-type driver can be used. For large torque motors, use a high-voltage type driver as much as possible to get good high-speed performance.Lunyee's stepper motors come with a complete stepper drive system that takes the hassle out of selection.
In summary, determining the correct NEMA 8 motor drive involves making sure that some of the parameters of the motor are matched to the drive or selecting a specific drive if there are other needs.
