NEMA 17 Stepper Motor

A NEMA 17 stepper motor is a stepper motor with a 1.7 x 1.7 inch (43.2 x 43.2 mm) faceplate. The NEMA 17 is larger and generally heavier than for example a NEMA 14, but this also means it has more room to put a higher torque. However, its size is not an indication of its power. The motors usually have a 5mm shaft size, 1.8 degree step angle (200 steps/revolution) and are used with either GT2 or MXL pulleys and belts.
