Stepper motors play an important role for motion control applications requiring more precision than standard variable speed motors, but not warranting the expense and complexity of servo motors.

For many applications, a stepper motor solution occupies the sweet spot of providing the required performance, but at a much lower cost than servo solutions. This white paper identifies the features and benefits of DC stepper motor solutions and introduces a newer high bus voltage style which makes the technology viable for many more applications.
