Step Angle Measurement System
The Step Angle Measurement System is used for measuring the step-angle of Unipolar and Bipolar Stepper Motors. It makes use of a reliable and robust, production-class, embedded hardware for accurately measuring the step-angle using a Hall-effect based sensor. A precision machined aluminum mechanical fixture is used for securing the motor to have minimal axial misalignments with the measuring hardware. All measurements are made by the system according to the parameters selected by the user and the test results are sent to a PC for evaluation.
 

Measurements

  • Step-angle of Stepper Motor
 

Controlled Parameters

  • Operating Voltage (0-60VDC, 3A)
  • PPS (5 – 5000 PPS)
  • Direction of Rotation (CW/CCW)
  • Operating Mode (Full Step/Half Step/Wave Drive)
 

Features

  • Interfaced with a Touch Screen PC to program test parameters and send commands to perform tests, carry out measurements, collect results, and view graphs for detailed analysis
  • All test parameters and conditions for a motor type are stored in a preprogrammed database
  • In-built DC power supply with drivers to drive any kind of Unipolar and Bipolar Stepper Motor
  • A precision machined aluminum mechanical fixture for securing the motor to have minimal axial misalignments with the measuring hardware
  • Provision for connecting external power supply, if required
  • Status LEDs to indicate system status
  • Constructed in a modular design with plug-in connectors for easy maintenance
 

Software

  • Step Angle Measurement System includes a Windows based software to perform tests and generate reports which can be stored in excel format
  • The software has facility to check and validate individual parameters of a test item at any instance of time
  • The results of the parameter being checked are monitored online in software until user stops the test
