The PKE high torque, high efficiency stepping motors can be driven at continuous duty cycles. They are designed to provide maximum torque while creating efficiencies currently not available in the stepper motor market. Through the use of new technology in the form of new materials, advanced stator and rotor design, and construction methods, these motors produce 1.2 to 1.5 times more torque than a conventional stepping motor while significantly reducing the power loss common in stepping motors. Key benefits of the higher efficiency are lower heat generation (78%) by the motor, constant duty operation, and up to 40% less power consumption.
