Product Configurator is an NEW online product selection tool from Oriental Motor that allows customers to choose their positioning products by selecting product criteria such as; Frame Size, Basic Step Angle, Gearhead and Linear Actuator or Hollow Rotary Actuator options, along with encoders, drivers, power supply, current and more. As the customer makes selections the available criteria change to match the available products.

This allows customers to quickly see how changes in criteria affect the performance and price of the various products quickly before making their final selection..
