Stepper motor

Stepper Motor at a glance:

Stepper motors are widely used in holding and positioning applications in the computer, security, automation and industrial fields. Depending on the number of phases, the winding arrangement and the required level of motion smoothness, ST offers several types of bipolar stepper motor drivers to ensure the best performance in applications.
