We're Excited to Announce our Smallest Hybrid Stepper

Little dog syndrome? Not with this motor. Our newest miniature motor, a NEMA 6 hybrid stepper, outperforms similar size permanent magnet motors in all aspects; it's more powerful, more accurate, offers higher speeds, and has a wider dynamic torque range. And who said bigger is better?
Our new PT106 Hybrid Step Motor measures just 16mm (0.63”) in width. In the past, this frame size was only possible to achieve with a less accurate, and less powerful permanent magnet (PM) motor.
PT106 offers all of the benefits of a hybrid stepper, and none of the drawbacks of a PM motor. PT106 outperforms PM motors in all metrics: it's more powerful, more accurate, offers higher speeds, and wider dynamic torque range.
For instance, a typical PM motor provides only 20 steps per revolution, or a step angle of 18 degrees. PT106 Hybrid Stepper Motor delivers PT106 steps per revolution, or a step angle of just 3.46 degrees. That’s more than 4x higher resolution than PM motor. High resolution translates to higher accuracy.
