AZ Series mini Driver

AlphaStep Closed Loop Stepper Motors

AZ Series mini Driver

The AZ Series mini Driver works with a variety of AlphaStep AZ Series, DC input products. This driver can be controlled using EtherCAT or RS-485 communication and daisy chained to maximize design, space and improve installation time. The mini Driver is also designed to be close to the motor, making it ideal for Robotic type applications.

The elimination of switches and I/O connectors allows for a compact and lightweight design. Utilizes the MEXE02 Support Software, available for free download.
