Press Release

May 17, 2013 – Oriental Motor Introduces Oriental Motor Introduces 0.72° All-in-One Stepper Motor, Driver and Controller


PKA SeriesAll-in-One Simplifies Motion Control

Oriental Motor is pleased to announce the introduction of our newest 0.72° All-in-One Stepper Motor, Driver and Controller, the PKA Series. By combining the high performance motor with a built-in microstepping driver and stored data controller, superior noise and vibration reduction can be easily achieved.

This All-in-One 0.72° stepper motor features a built-in controller (stored data) type, microstepping driver and high performance motor integrated into one compact package. With a high performance 0.72° stepper motor as the base motor, performance advantages over competitor all-in-one microstepping offerings are clear, especially at low speeds.

There is no wiring needed between the controller, driver and motor, providing easy motion control of the high performance 0.72° stepper motor. Since there is a built-in controller, there is no need for a pulse generator. The system is simplified and requires less wiring.

FT CurveA positioning function is built in, ensuring that the traveling amount, speed, and other operating data are retained in the motor. It is also equipped with a variety of other operation functions in addition to the positioning operation, such as continuous operation and a return-to-home operation. This contributes to a reduced load on the programmable controller and a simplified program.

The PKA Series is DC input and available in 42 mm (1.65 in.) and 60 mm (2.36 in.) frame sizes.

The PKA Series’ key features are:

  • Compact, All-in-One design simplifies motion control and reduces wiring
  • Integrated high performance 0.72° stepper motor
  • Built-in Controller (Stored Data) type
  • Equipped with an Interface that Connects to Various Master Control Systems
  • 2 motor frame sizes
