Step Drive and Motor Compatibility Chart

This chart shows the compatibility between Compumotor micro-stepping drives and Compumotor stepper motors. Please read the notes at the bottom of the chart:

1 S-Series and ZETA series compatibility also refers to and includes the LN and QM Series motor lines.
2 The maximum current output of the LN drive is 2.2 amps. So larger S-Series motors, while compatible, are impractical for use, as they will be underpowered.
3 The drive must be matched to the motor via internal current-limiting resistors and potentiometers.
4 The maximum current output of the OEM650 is 7.5 amps, so the S106-178 and S106-250 motors will not able to achieve maximum rated torque.5 Most A- and M-Series motors have higher inductance values than the operating inductance range of the drive. As a result, peak torque output will be reduced. See the AX/SX Compatibility Guide, or call the Compumotor Applications Department regarding specific drive/motor combinations.
6 The S-Series motors are rated for use with a bipolar drive. When run with a unipolar drive, the series current rating for the S-motor being used must be multiplied by a factor of 1.414.
7 The maximum current output of the OEM350 drive is 2.0 Amps, so larger S series motors are impractical.
8 The drive's output bus voltage must be de-rated to 90VDC, as the C-Series motors are not designed to handle more than 90VDC max.
