  July 2013 – NEW! High-Torque Bipolar Stepper Motors from Oriental Motor

NEW! - 1.8° & 0.9° PKP Series High-Torque Bipolar Stepper Motor

PKP Series High-Torque bipolar Stepping MotorWith over 400 new bipolar stepper motors now available, Oriental Motor has made it even easier to find the correct size, torque and electrical specifications to meet your design requirements and now with lower pricing.

  • 1.8° or 0.9° step angles
  • Bipolar (4 lead wires) over 400 new types
  • 1.2~1.7 times more torque than our previous conventional types
  • Geared bipolar types (pre-assembled)

The PKP series is a 1.8° or 0.9° high-torque type stepper motor providing significantly more torque than our PK Series stepper motors. The new PKP series provide higher torque allowing for smoother performance, less heat and space saving (by downsizing frame sizes). 5 frame sizes are available from 20 mm (0.79 in.) up to 56.4/60mm (2.22/2.36 in) are offered. Learn More.


All PKP series high-torque motors feature our motor connector and locking mechanism* and include the connection cables, motor & encoder (if applicable) at no additional cost.

* Except 20 mm (0.79 in.) lead wires type & 28 mm (1.10 in.).

Below is this month's "Question of the Month"

Fully Utilizing the PKP High Torque Series

Q: I'm considering switching my current PK series standard step motors to your new PKP series high torque series step motors. What are the differences that I should be aware of, and what else can I expect to gain besides being able to drive bigger loads and accelerate quicker?

A: Due to improvements in its design, our new PKP series stepper motors output higher torque than its predecessor, the PK series. There are many ways that the user can utilize the extra torque to maximize the performance of the motor. The obvious improvements would be bigger loads and quicker acceleration, but there are numerous other benefits which we will go over in this article.
