The IP68 (underwater) stepper motors are ideally suited for applications in water and humid environments.
The IP68 motor can be used up to a depth of 10m (equivalent to 1 bar) and, together with the drylin® lead screw linear systems made of stainless steel or toothed belt axes UW, form a perfect underwater team.
Stepper motors from igus® are a good supplement to drylin® linear axes. They are characterised by their cost-effectiveness, precision and easy control. They work reliably under the most varied environmental conditions (depending on the selected class of protection IP). The igus® stepper motors can be connected to the most common motor controls using standardised electrical connection.
The encoder sends signals from the motor to the motor control. The encoder verifies that the required linear motion has occurred precisely as required. Encoder = increased machine accuracy.
