A stepper motor, also known as step motor or stepping motor, is a brushless DC electric motor that divides a full rotation into a number of equal steps. The motor’s position can be commanded to move and hold at one of these steps without any position sensor for feedback.A hybrid stepper motor is a combination of the variable reluctance and permanent magnet type motors.

The rotor of a hybrid stepper motor is axially magnetized like a permanent magnet stepper motor, and the stator is electromagnetically energized like a variable reluctance stepper motor.Learn how hybrid stepper motor works in this video on hybrid stepper motor basics, covering the rotational magnetic field as well as the rotor and stator.
This stepper motor is an actuator that converts electrical pulses into angular displacement.hybrid stepper motors provide higher torque with smaller step angle and have a better dynamic property.
The electromagnetic stator is also toothed. The rotor teeth help guide the magnetic flux to preferred locations in the air gap, which improves their holding, dynamic, and detent torque when compared to permanent magnet and variable reluctance types.Hybrid stepper motors are used in many different applications that require accurate and repeatable positioning and speed control./The Engineering Mindset
