Servo and Stepper Motors

  • Neil Cameron
Chapter

Abstract

Servo and stepper motors are used in a variety of applications, such as robotics, tracking systems, and positioning devices. Servo motors are used for fast movement to a given angle, while the stepper motors moves at a controlled speed in either continuous rotation or to a specific position. The servo motor has a feedback mechanism to determine location in contrast to the stepper motor that is moved incrementally. Servo motors are included in projects in Chapters  13,  22, and  24 with the stepper motor used in Chapter  9.
