AutomationDirect has added motors designed for washdown environments to its stepper systems product line. SureStep IP65-rated high-torque stepping motors are said to be completely protected from solids and dust ingress and from low pressure water jets from any direction, making them suitable for many washdown applications.
The AutomationDirect motors are available with NEMA 17, 23, and 34 mounting flanges and provide holding torque from 61 to 1288 oz-in. The motors use 2-phase technology with 200 full steps per revolution or 1.8 degrees per full step.
The CE compliant motors are available in single-shaft configurations and have a 1-ft cable and locking connector. Extension cables with mating IP65 connector are available in 6, 10 and 20 ft lengths.
