FIRST THINGS FIRST
The frame size of motors is used for both stepper motors and brushless DC motors but it is used most commonly with stepper motors as a useful shorthand for power and torque.
Always remember that (within the NEMA sizing system) the length of the motor will vary but the NEMA frame size simply refers to the diameter of the motor face.
Most commonly these faces are square (for example the ZD4N2318 which is a square faced NEMA 23 stepper motor) but in some cases they may be circular.
Frame sizes are split up into NEMA (National Electronic Manufacturers Association) ratings which are a useful shorthand for motor sizes.
If your interest in motor sizes was purely academic then we hope we have helped. If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will do our best to help.
Alternatively if you are looking for a motor and aren’t sure which is best for your application then you could start by having a quick look at our standard range.
We offer a range of stepper motors of different sizes which are available in geared or standard format.
As always, if you have any questions about choosing the right motor or the pros and cons of a long stack NEMA 17 versus a short stack NEMA 23 (for example) then you can get in touch with us via online chat, phone or email.

Why not start by browsing some of the ZD Series Stepper Motors with Stepper Motor Controllers which feature NEMA 17 and NEMA 23 in both standard forms and also as geared stepper motors. If you have any questions about what is the best motor to use in your application you can browse our guide here or CONTACT US to discuss your project with an engineer.
