Fusing a motor with its controlling electronics in one single device does more than just eliminate the cost and bulk of the extra wiring. MOONS' integrated motors improve efficiency, reliability, and electromagnetic compatibility. Also, the torque curves for the integrated motors eliminate guesswork. With the indexer/controller, driver, motor, and feedback already combined, the rest of the system integration is simplified.

TSM integrated stepper VS open-loop stepper
TSM Series Integrated Step-Servo Motor: As the Next Evolution in Step Motor Technology, TSM series integrated motors offer the same high-torque-at-low-speed and excellent holding torque characteristics, with the advantages of true closed-loop control. These advantages include the ability to create peak torques up to 50% higher than open loop motors, as well as cooler and quieter operation.
For more details, see the Product Details section on individual product pages.
STM Series Integrated Stepper Motor: The space-saving design of STM series eliminates wiring and help you realized a better cost saving over the conventional motor and drive solutions. With the built-in encoder option, STM integrated motor can be used for Stall Detection or Stall Prevention. Be different with STM-R series, STM series support multiple control options.

The Questions You May Concern About
What is the advantage of having a built-in encoder for STM series?Expand ∨
The built-in encoder option that is available on our integrated stepper motors can be used for Stall Detection or Stall Prevention. These encoder functions allow for the integrated drive to either fault (in the case of Stall Detection mode) or to slow down the step motor in order to increase the torque output (in the case of Stall Prevention mode) when the encoder feedback indicates that the motor is stalling or near stalling. Stall Detection in combination with Q programming allows for the integrated stepper to perform a hard-stop homing routine, thereby eliminating the need for an external home sensor. The encoder counts may also be used within Q programs or by a 3rd party host controller/HMI over a network connection.

You need to find the following things: 1. SR3-Mini stepper motor drive SR3-Mini is one kind of MOONS’ new designed stepper motor drivers. Its special ultra-compact design would allow user to mount anywhere. 2. Incremental Encoder You could find the encoder made by CUI in our website. This encoder has selectable resolutions up to 2048 PPR. 3. Dual shaft stepper motor MOONS' Dual shaft stepper motor would be your great choice. 4. Mount Bracker Here is a 3D model for your reference (Stepper motor plus SR3-Mini Stepper Drive):
In my application, some water may splash on the motor. Is this a suitable application for an integrated motor? Expand ∨
Be sure to use an IP65 rated integrated motor such as SWM24 or TXM24/34 series. These motors are sealed so that water and dust cannot get inside and damage the motor or electronics. They use M12 style cables which are also water tight.
The STM fused step motor and drive technologies into a single device, offering savings on space, wiring and cost over conventional motor and drive solutions. With the controller, STM has more control options, and stall detection and stall prevention functions.
