Hybrid stepper motors provide excellent performance in areas of torque, speed, and step resolution. Typically, step angles for a hybrid stepper motor range from 200 to 400 steps per revolution. This type of motor provides a combination of the best features available on both the PM and VR types of stepper motors.
Permanent magnet and hybrid stepper motors are two types of the most commonly used stepper motors. Sometimes, it’s difficult to know which type of stepper motor is the best choice for your project. For this reason, we have provided detailed information to help engineers determine the best motor for their application requirements. Follow our convenient step motor guide to learn the basics of hybrid stepper motor engineering and find out why this type of motor can be so beneficial to your project.
