Quick Programming - some case studies

The fastest route to a customised motor controller…

The quickest way to get a customised stepper motor controller or brushless ESC for whatever project you have is to take one of our existing motor controllers and ask us to develop a specific programme which delivers the performance that you require. This is the most common way that we work with many of our customers and enables us to quickly deliver the right stepper motor driver or BLDC motor driver solution for what you need. Sometimes these are as simple as setting a custom speed range but in other cases it may be more complex. Whatever you need just let us know and our engineers will be happy to advise.


Bridge Biotechnology are a Dunfermline based company which manufactures ESOL generators. ESOL is a form of environmentally friendly disinfectant which can be used in a huge number of applications from swimming pools to literally turning dirty stagnant water into safe drinking water. For this system to work they require accurate dosing and a controller which can quickly be setup to work with a PLC.

The flexibility of the Zikodrive ZDSP Stepper Motor Driver

Based on the power requirements of Bridge Biotechnology, we quickly recommended the ZDSP stepper motor driver as the best choice. Based on the dosing requirements of the ESOL Generator system we custom programmed each stepper motor driver to have a set speed range with the controller then being carefully optimised to deliver exceptional speed resolution.

ZD Series Stepper Motors with Integrated stepper motor drivers and stepper motor controllers


NYMAX are a company which design and manufacture innovative laboratory equipment for use in clinical and testing applications. In order to ensure the optimal performance from this equipment they required a stepper motor driver which could be setup with a preset speed range as well as interfacing with a speed control pot. This would then enable the user to control the  speed range directly.

In this case, Nymax also opted to use the ZDSP stepper motor driver as it suited the power requirements that were needed and allowed them to quickly manage key settings such as current and other settings. In this case the compact design of the ZDSP stepper motor controller also made it a better choice for the specific application than the ZD2 stepper motor driver.


The flexibility of the Zikodrive stepper motor driver range in combination with the ability to quickly programme drivers to work with a range of additional hardware allows the range to function well in a wide range of applications.
