X-NMS-E Series: Stepper motors with built-in controllers, motor encoders, and optional brakes

These NEMA size 17 and 23 stepper motors have built-in controllers and encoders for stall detection and recovery. A detachable home sensor HS02 and magnet are included. An additional HS02L150 Hall effect sensor can be purchased to function as an away sensor. These motors are standalone units requiring only a standard 24 V or 48 V power supply.

An indexed knob provides convenient manual control for versatile operation even without a computer. The motors connect to the USB 2.0 or RS-232 port of any computer and can be daisy-chained with any other Zaber products. Convenient locking, 4-pin, M8 connectors on the unit allow for secure connection between units. An optional power-off brake is available on NEMA 23 sized steppers to secure the payload across power cycles. The chain also shares power, so multiple X-Series products can use a single power supply.
