DSMS-series DC
integrated stepper motor and microstepping drive DSMS Series Motors

ABB's DSMS series stepper motors integrate a high torque stepper motor and microstepping drive. Features include:

  • Advanced second generation current control for exceptional performance and smoothness
  • Quiet operation
  • Microstepping resolution from 400 to 51200 steps/rev
  • Wide operating voltage range
  • USB programming cable for easy setup

Ideally suited for machine designers who want the simplicity of an integrated solution. The DSM motors helps to reduce the wiring in the system and the potential for problems due to electrical noise.

The DSMS motor is a compact, powerful and inexpensive solution that will reduce system cost, design and assembly time for a large range of stepping motor applications. It is ideally suited for use with ABB's motion controllers, especially the versatile NextMove e100 motion controller.
