Applied Motion Products offers an extended line of stepper motors with IP65 ratings that are dustproof and resistant to water pressure impact, making them ideal for use in wet and dusty applications.
Utilizing advanced seal protection technology, the IP65-rated step motors feature sealed laminations, an oil shaft seal, internal corrosion-resistant film coating, gaskets for mechanical joints and an integral 10 ft. shielded cable that offers protection against the ingress of dust and resistance to low-pressure water jets. For improved protection in high-humidity environments, an advanced coating is available as an option.
These IP65-rated step motors are available in NEMA sizes 23, 24 and 34.  A double-shaft version is available with an optional IP65-rated encoder for applications requiring feedback.  The step motors operate with Applied Motion Products stepper drives that offer advanced current control for optimal smoothness and torque.  In addition to communication options including EtherNet/IP and Modbus, the stepper drives offer stored program execution using the Q programming language.
