Stepper Motor and Driver Package DC Input


0.36°/0.72° 5-Phase Stepper Motor and Driver Package - CVK Series

The CVK Series features one of the smallest, standard microstepping drivers combined with a 0.36°/0.72° 5-phase high-torque stepper motor for the optimum motor performance. Since the driver size, installation and I/O connectors are the same, it is easy to evaluate the motor based on the application requirements. The 0.36°/0.72° 5-phase CVK Series features higher speed and increased positional accuracy and with the fully digitally controlled microstepping driver, all CVK Series motors feature low vibration throughout the entire speed range.

The CVK Series is also available with a 1.8° 2-phase stepper motor and driver packages that feature the highest motor torque in the low speed range.

Three frame sizes are available; 1.10 in. (28 mm), 1.65 in. (42 mm), and 2.36 in. (60 mm).

Higher Torque Across all Speed Ranges

Through revisions to the motor winding design and a high-efficiency driver circuit design, the performance of the 0.36°/0.72° 5-phase stepper motors has been brought to their full potential, resulting in significant increases in torque in all speed ranges. Torque in the 500 r/min range has increased by 85% compared to conventional products.

Stepper Motor Torque Comparison

By adopting a higher current motor winding specification, the usage range is now much wider.

Reduced Vibration

The fully digital-controlled microstep driver has further improved the low vibration and noise reduction factors.

Stepper Motor Vibration Comparison

Lower vibration and further noise reductions have been achieved through the use of a fully digital-controlled microstep driver.

For High Torque in the Low Speed Range Use a 1.8° Stepper Motor

Speed and Torque Performance of the 1.8° and 0.36°/0.72° Stepper Motor Packages

The maximum holding torque in the low-speed range is achieved with the 1.8° stepper motor and driver packages through the use of a high motor current design and specification. The speed range has increase considerably with the 0.36°/0.72° packages.

Common Driver Size Offers Flexibility in Motor Performance

The size, installation and I/O connectors for the CVK Series 1.8° and 0.36°/0.72° stepper motor and driver packages are the same. Because of this, it is easy to evaluate and select the proper package for your specific application.

*The driver for a 1.8° stepper motor and the driver for a 0.36°/0.72° stepper motor are not interchangeable. Each motor type has a dedicated driver.

Resolution Setting

Resolution Setting

It is easy to try 0.72° or 0.36° motor and driver without any changes to your 1.8° pulse input as the driver has a step resolution switch to allow for setting of input to output resolution. Simply choose a 0.36° or 0.72° package (driver mounting is the same) and use the step angle setting switch to match the existing input pulses to the desired output speed and position. There is no software or control module required.

System Configuration

Build a complete system online by selecting your base stepper motor and driver and adding all necessary accessories and/or controller.

Couplings / Brackets

Flexible Couplings

Motor Cables

This three-piece coupling adopts an aluminum alloy hub and a resin spider. The simple construction ensures that the high torque generated by a gear motor can be transmitted reliably. The proper elasticity of the spider suppresses motor vibration.

Motor Mounting Brackets

Mounting Bracket

Mounting brackets are convenient for installation and securing a stepper motor or geared stepper motor.



Cables / Connectors

Driver Lead Wire Set


Controllers are devices that output pulse signals needed to operate a stepper motor. Controllers let you make various settings to control your motor and also permit connection with a host programmable controller and sensors or PC. Select a controller that best suits your system.

Connection CableAs an accessory for DC input drivers, lead wires with a connector are available. These lead wires allow for easy connection of the motor, power supply and input/output signals. The connection cable set includes three connection cables (for motor, power supply and input/output signals).
