【White Paper】Development of AZ Series Compact Driver

In recent years, automated devices such as articulated robots have been getting smaller and lighter thus increasing the need to place drivers closer to the motor to save space. The AZD-KRD compact driver has a smaller volume than the conventional product due to its radical design.

White Paper: Development of AZD-KRD compact driver

Size reduction was achieved by:

  • eliminating switches
  • replacing I/O control with RS-485 communication
  • redesigning the structure of the connectors and case

【Engineering Note】The Choice Between Servo Motors and Stepper Motors

The best motor is the one that meets the application requirements.  However, when both servo motors and stepper motors satisfy the basic requirements of a positioning application, it's important to have a deeper understanding of the two technologies to make an informed decision.

AZ motor vs servo motor speed torque comparison

This blog post focuses on the differences between servo motors and stepper motors and explains how closed-loop stepper motors are closing the gap.
