ST-17 Stepper Servo


The ST-17 is available as a fully integrated Stepper-Servo. The ST-17 is combined
with our own 16,384 count encoder and high-torque motor.
The result is a true closed-loop servo motor with all the advantages of a stepper
motor.

EvoDrive ST-PCB
The EvoDrive ST-PCB is a PCB mounted controller,
for high-volume, multi-axis applications.
The EvoDrive ST-PCB provides exactly the same
level of performance as the integrated controllers
above, but with interfaces more suited to embedded controllers.
Perfect for high-volume production.
