Hi Guys :)

At my local electronic junk shop, I came across a bunch of stepper motors and I was wondering if they would work and a guess at what the torque might be. This is the description:

Oriental Motor, type PH268l-01
6 wires
round case, about 3"
square end with flanges approx 3-3.5"
approx 4.5" long
specs:
E=5.4V
1.8 degree step
Iw=1.5 amp
Shaft at one end with a belt gear wheel.

They want $10 each for them, but if I bought 3-4 he would probably deal. I would probably use a Xylotex driver. The cnc I would build would have a cutting area of approx 2' by 3' and I am thinking of direct drive to a 1/2 inch 10 TPI acme rod.

Thanks for all you help
Phil

They will work. They are probably about 150 oz-in (guessing).

They sound like they are the older "PH" series of Vexta steppers...........superceded by the "PK" series (eg PK268-01). I have four NOS PH268-21 steppers ready to go when I eventually get my machine built................I haven't been able to find much information on the PH series, but I'm pretty sure their specs vary slightly from the PK replacement.

:cool:

I have just bought on ebay 5 ph268l 21 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7500330313&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT.

In my research I came apon this site https://secure18.prohosting.com/~a0002659/motors/Oriental-Motors-nema23.html. In it they say that my motor has 125 oz-in and yours 187 oz-in. What buffels me is that you spec the amp and volt the same as my motor but on the page yours should have I=1 and V=8.6.

I paid $15 per motor, way more then what you were asked to pay but they are supposed to be new. We'll see when they come. :D

They sound like Nema 34 size flanges.
