Slimline stepper drive is perfectly protected

Mclennan Servo Supplies has introduced a new fully protected 6A bipolar drive for use with 23 and 34 frame size hybrid stepper motors.

In addition to the normal short circuit protection, the design overcomes potential problems arising from open circuit outputs such as severance of leads and the consequential arcing that occurs. Mclennan sees that this added protection in the new drive will improve system reliability by creating a fail safe environment.
