Micro stepper motor and drive certified for hazardous areas

Micro stepper motor and drive certified for hazardous areas

Following last year’s launch of its STAC-6 series ATEX, IEC-Ex and UL hazardous location certified microstepping drive, Applied Motion Products (AMP) has released a compatible stepper motor – allowing a complete internationally certified motor and drive package for machine automation applications in high safety industries where explosive atmospheres are commonly found such as oil and gas, mining and printing.

Available with full support from Mclennan, the new stepper motor is certified for Class I, Zone 1 locations and would typically be installed in highly hazardous areas with the matching STAC-6 drive, which has a Class I, Zone 2 certification, and suits a physically isolated location. The new HX56-100 motor has a NEMA 56 frame with a nominal diameter of 134mm and length of 170mm. Its environmental rating is IP66/Type 4X. The high torque design is optimised for microstepping and yields an approximate power rating of 250W.
