Stepper Motors

DSMS-Series DC Integrated Stepper Motor and Microstepping Drive

Baldor's DSMS Series stepper motors follow on from the DSM stepper motors integrating a high torque stepper motor and microstepping drive. New features include:

  • Advanced second generation current control for exceptional performance and smoothness
  • Quieter operation
  • 20 microstep resolutions including degrees, metric and arc minutes
  • Wider operating voltage range
  • USB programming cable for easy setup
  • Operating temperature extended to -40 to 85 degC

This is ideally suited for machine designers who want the simplicity of an integrated solution. The DSM motors helps to reduce the wiring in the system and the potential for problems due to electrical noise.

Motion Control (Mint®) Software Solutions

At Baldor, we believe in making your life easier. Mint® is the programming language for our range of motion controllers and programmable servo drives. Designed around Basic, Mint will be familiar to many. Mint offers ease of use with its English like keywords and high level functionality.

The latest version of Mint® offers multitasking capabilities for motion, I/O and HMI tasks. High level functionality in the form of tasks, functions and procedures allow machine control tasks to be easily broken down into smaller more manageable parts. Modularity not only makes it easier to develop applications, but also makes it easier to debug an application and re-use code for future projects.

DC Motors

Baldor manufactures a wide range of permanent magnet and would field DC industrial motors from 15kW to 550kW.

All of our DC motors are covered by applicable UL, CSA and CE approvals and a warranty you would expect from a World-Class manufacturer.

Our motors are avialable in IEC and NEMA frame, with a full range of IEC motors available from stock. The motors are complements by our range of DC Drives.

Our NEMA frame DC motors include permanent magnet designs through 5 HP and wound field designs through 500 HP designed for adjustable speed operation from SCR controls. Applications include conveyors, extruders, winders, printing presses and metering pumps. Most designs are constructed so a tachometer may be added for closed loop applications. Permanent magnet and wound field designs for 90 or 180 VDC have a 20:1 constant torque speed range.

We offer a large range of motors including:
  • General Purpose
  • Washdown
  • Explosion Proof
  • Power Motors
  • Integral Tachometer
  • Lifting Magnet Motors

DC Drives

Baldor's VersaFlex DC Drives combine digital motor control circuitry with reliable SCR power devices to provide advanced DC motor control and protection. Onboard operator control allows easy programming of control set-up and operating parameters. Optional feedback expansion boards enhance drive capabilities by allowing the control to continuously monitor a motor-mounted AC or DC tachometer or incremental encoder. Controls from 35 to 165A continuous include built-in line contactor, control logic supply, and fuses (line, armature, field supply, and control logic). Other options include internally mounted blower motor starter, and communications boards. VersaFlex DC and Regen DC controls can be configured using Workbench D.


  • VersaFlex DC control provides unidirectional (single quadrant) digital control
  • VersaFlex Regen DC provides bidirectional (4 quadrant) regenerative control
