Stepper Optimizer 

Stepper Optimizer provides multiple ways for you to discover what Kollmorgen step motor works best in your application. Browse our step motor catalog and discover which motor frame size will fit your application, and then modify the available voltage and current to produce a torque/speed curve for your drive. You can also use our Application Sizing section to find the best solution that fits your application requirements. You can determine a solution by identifying your required torque and speed, or through identifying your basic motion profile. The tool takes into account not only your available voltage and current, but considers your duty cycle, on time, ideal current reduction and current reduction delay.

AKD2G Safe Dynamic Braking Calculator 

The AKD2G Safe Dynamic Braking calculator is a tool that will assist you in determining the Stopping Time for the motor when using the AKD2G’s Safe Dynamic Brake (SDB) function. In some applications, it will be very beneficial to short the motor wires via “Safe” relays rather than using an electromechanical holding brake. In addition to the Stopping Time the calculator will provide you information on the Braking Current for the purpose of determining contactor and resistor ratings in the SDB circuit.
