The MDrive Hybrid 23 Step, Torque, Speed offers systems designers a NEMA 23 high torque 1.8 degree step motor integrated with a high resolution microstepping driver with four operational modes. The motor possesses up to 283 oz-in of holding torque and is available in four stack lengths. This model also features Hybrid Technology which continually monitors the relationship between a step motor's rotor and stator at sub-microsecond intervals, and will not allow that relationship to exceed the point where synchronization is lost.

Drive Protection Module
The function of the DPM75 Drive Protection Module is to limit the surge current and voltage to a safe level when DC input power is switched on and off to a motor drive. This provides the added protection necessary for reliable motor drive operation when switching the DC power, instead of the recommended AC power to the DC power supply. The device is designed to protect the motor drive when operating under all load conditions. This device does not protect the motor drive from wiring the power incorrectly.
The unit is capable of being used with 48, 60, and75 volt rated motor drives. An external jumper selection is available so the user can match the circuit to their particular application. The DPM75 is capable of a steady state operating current of 4 amps.
The DPM75 can be used for any frame size motor drive, when properly configured. It can also be used for more than one unit provided the current and voltage do not exceed the DPM75's ratings. The maximumDPM75 ratings are 75 volts and 4 amps.
