ISL Products develops value-added Stepper Motor solutions for a variety of customers and applications. We are one of the most customer focused stepper manufacturers in the world. Our Stepper Motors offer excellent torque output, precise positioning, and serve as a cost-effective solution for all motion control applications. We provide many types of stepper motors ranging from Hybrid Stepper Motors, as small as NEMA 8, to Flat Permanent Magnet Stepper Motors. We also offer Geared Stepper Motors for applications with higher torque requirements. We continue to push stepper motor technology to the next level.

Most stepper manufacturers will only offer a standard stepper motor catalog of stock items. ISL Products designs and manufactures a range of high precision stepper motors and geared stepper motors that offer high torque output at a very cost effective price. We work with our customers to offer a solution rather than try to push standard products. Our hybrid stepper motors are proven solutions for a vast range of applications. Let us know how we can help you!

Geared Stepper Motors – The Perfect Solution Higher Torque Applications

Geared Stepper Motors are simply a hybrid stepper motor coupled with a speed reduction gearbox. We design our stepper gearboxes with planetary gears for superior performance. They are ideally suited for applications where low speed, high holding torque and precision positioning is required. The gear box addition provides a much higher overall maximum torque output. We can offer a wide range of gear ratios on all of our to provide the best torque and speed output your device demands.

Stepper Motor Functionality

A Stepper Motor is a brushless type of motor or BLDC motor that divides a full rotation into several equal “steps”. Stepper Motors are controlled by electrical pulses sent from a stepper motor driver or stepper motor controller. The stepper motor driver is used for speed control and position control of the stepper motors by holding fixed-step angles and controlling the rotational speeds and direction of rotation. A power supply will supply the voltage to the motor through the controller. Our stepper motors can be controlled via either an open or closed-loop system. We manufacture our Stepper Motors with various step angles, most commonly 1.8 degree, which equates to about 200 steps per revolution. In order to meet all of our customers needs, we also offer 0.45 degree and 0.9 degree step angles. The most common applications for closed loop stepper motors are CNC machines, laser cutters, disk drives as well as being used as 3D printer motors.

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) set standards for companies that produce electrical products, suck as electric motor equipment and wiring that’s used in industrial facilities. Hybrid stepper motors are one such product categorized by NEMA, designating each a frame size (such as; 11, 23 or 34). As an example, a NEMA 23-size hybrid stepping motor would have a mounting face size of 2.3 inches square, and subsequently, a NEMA 17 hybrid stepper motor would have a 1.7 inches square sized mounting surface. Our steppers typically run off DC power, we don’t typically offer AC motors.
