What is the difference between a single shaft and dual shaft motor? motor?



Quite simply a single shaft motor has one shaft which comes out of the face of the motor and a dual shaft motor has the shaft coming out of the face and rear of the motor. The single shaft is a straight forward concept which can be easily understood. The dual shaft can be used in a number of ways. One example is to drive 2 applications on either side of the motor. A second is to use the rear shaft to mount an encoder to actively monitor the actual speed of the motor and then make adjustments as required.

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. We do not normally stock double shaft stepper motors but we can get any of our existing range in a double shaft format if required.
