Oriental Motor Introduces PKP Series Standard 2-Phase 1.8° and 0.9° Stepper Motor with Electromagnetic Brake

Leading the stepper motor market, now with power-off activated electromagnetic brakes

Oriental Motor is pleased to introduce our new 1.8° and 0.9° PKP Series 2-Phase stepper motor, the leading stepper motor in the market, now preassembled with new Oriental Motor's Original Electromagnetic Brake.


The new PKP Series stepper motors are now available with built-in power-off activated electromagnetic brakes. When power is accidentally cut off due to unexpected events, such as a black out, the electromagnetic brake holds the load in position to prevent it from moving. When the motor is at standstill, it can be held by the electromagnetic brake. The electromagnetic brake can also be used to suppress the heat generated from the motor by switching off the motor current and using the brake as the holding function.

The new PKP Series stepper motors with Electromagnetic Brake type is available in both bipolar and unipolar configurations and in the following frame sizes: 35 mm (1.38 in.), 42 mm (1.65 in.) and 56.4 mm (2.22 in.). PKP26_ models (56.5 mm/2.22 in. frame size) comes with an 8 mm shaft.
