Stepper Motors: Linear Motor Performance

Performance Curve of linear stepper motors is equivalent to that of rotary stepper motors, replacing torque by force.

Example below shows Force = f (Step frequency) for linear motor UCE1.

If the motor is powered by a Current controlled chopper driver (see ….), force is increased at higher step frequency:
