We bought 4 for a prototype machine for the agricultural industry and they worked flawlessly. A little assistance from one of the support guys and we were able to integrate our in-house controller with the position feedback system.

Just put an order in for 40 for the first run. Thanks guys. Review by Peter G. / (Posted on 1/26/2018)
Works as expected
Feedback system works as you'd expect a quadrature system to. Repeatable and accurate. Motor seems to be more than strong enough for my project Review by Philip G. / (Posted on 11/15/2016)
