What is 2-Phase Stepping Motor?

2-phase stepping motor, small stepper motor

The 2 phase stepping motor is a hybrid stepper that comes with a two-phase where speed is not affected by the size of the load. The stepper works on the strictness of speed and position with continuous control. It is an electric motor that rotates its shafts at a fixed amount degree or in the angular position without any sensors.

As all with electric engines, stepper engines have a fixed part (the stator) and a moving part (the rotor). On the stator, there are teeth on which loops are wired, while the rotor is either a perpetual magnet or a variable hesitance iron center. We will jump further into the diverse rotor structures later.

The fundamental working standard of the stepper engine is the accompanying: By empowering at least one of the stator stages, an attractive field is created by the current streaming in the loop, and the rotor lines up with this field. By providing various stages in arrangement, the rotor can be turned by a particular add-up to arrive at the ideal last position. The small stepper motor comes in different types and has different areas of functioning depending on one’s requirements and usage in the long run.
