New - PKA Series – 0.72° All-in-One Stepper Motor, Driver and Controller

PKA Series

All-in-One PKA Series

The PKA Series is a DC input all-in-one 0.72° stepper motor that combines the high performance of a 0.72° stepper motor with a built-in microstepping driver and controller (stored data) type. The built-in controller increases the system configuration flexibility and ease of use. With a high performance 0.72° stepper motor as the base motor, performance advantages over other all-in-one microstepping offerings is clear, especially at low speeds. Being all-in-one solution, wiring and other driver concerns are minimized. Pricing is very attractive, from $415~$432. The PKA Series is offered in two frame sizes, 1.65 in (42mm) and 2.36 in (60mm).

Built-in Controller Feature

The built-in controller (stored data) type driver is part of our FLEX product offering and is designed to reduce the burden of the Master Controller. FLEX is the generic name for products that are used for Factory Automation (FA) network control via I/O control, Modbus (RTU) control, or a network converter. The built-in controller features the following key points:

  • Data Setting type
  • Positioning Operation (0 to 63)
    • Linked Operation
    • Sequential Operation
  • Speed Control Operation
  • Return to Home Operation
  • I/O
    • 4 Inputs
    • 2 Outputs

Use the MEXE02 software (available for free download on our website) or the OPX-2A control module to set the parameters and motion profiles for simple and easy control.

NEW CRK Series with Built-in Controller (Stored Data) type

The CRK Series product line has now expanded to include a built-in controller (stored data) type complementing the open frame pulse input type and box type (stored program) packages. This new CRK Series is our most competitively priced 0.36° / 0.72° stepper motor package with a built-in controller and is ideal when the lowest noise and lowest vibration are required. The CRK Series is able to divide the basic step angle of the motor into a maximum of 250 divide without using any mechanical elements such as a reduction gear. As a result, vibration and noise are greatly reduced.

For improved positional accuracy, stop positional accuracy of 2 arc minutes or 0.034° (no load) is possible with the 0.36° high-torque type stepper motor vs. a standard stepper motor with 3 arc minutes (0.05°) allowing for greater metering, inspecting or control.

The CRK Series is also introducing Electromagnetic brakes on the 0.72° stepper motors, round shaft only, size 1.65 (42mm) and 2.36 in. (60mm) cable type motors and is ideal for holding a load or for vertical applications in the event of a power loss.

Oriental Motor Can-Do! Ask an Oriental Motor Engineer a Question: We're Here to Help!

Oriental Motor's Engineering Team is just a click away. Send your motion control questions to Oriental Motor's engineers and we'll publish their response on our Motion Control Forum.

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

What is the concept of FLEX products?

Q: I see that several of your new products have the FLEX logo now. What is the meaning of "FLEX"?

A: FLEX"Flex" is a product family name for Oriental Motor products that are designed to work directly with popular Factory Automation (FA) networks via I/O control, Modbus (RTU) control, or indirectly through network converters for other communication protocols such as Ethercat.

FLEX products allow for simple wiring, quick setup, flexibility of communication protocols, faster communication, and reduction of system complexity.
