The IP65-rated aStep AS Series with dust- and splashproof capabilities is a hybrid step motor and driver package designed to never lose synchronism, according to the co. A new embedded rotor-position sensor monitors performance to prevent loss of motion. A splashproof seal is added to the redesigned size 23 (60-mm) and 34 (80 mm) AS Series metal connectors to achieve IP65 protection. A protective, earth-ground terminal is installed on the metal connector to the motor case. The 60-mm-sq AS66A and AS69A motors develop 170.0-oz-in. and 280.0-oz-in. holding torque, respectively. The larger, 80-mm-sq AS motors develop 280.0-oz-in. (AS98A) and 560.0-oz-in. (AS911A) holding torque.
