By completing the stepper motors with accessory assemblies, such as gears, encoders, brakes or clutches, the range of applications of the drive assemblies can be significantly expanded. Assembly can be carried out either by MICROSTEP GmbH or by the user himself, as the accessory assemblies can be optimally adapted to the motors.
For use with gearboxes, various preferred variants have been defined as a combination of stepper motor with planetary gearbox. These can be found under the product group geared stepper motors.
Due to their relatively small size, permanent magnet brakes are primarily used with the MICROSTEP stepper motors of the SHS 39/200-xxxx and SHS 39/400-xxxx series.
Permanent magnet brakes are electromagnetically releasing brakes for dry running with frictionally engaged, backlash-free action, whose force flow is generated by permanent magnets. The mode of operation allows shafts to be connected or masses to be braked safely in the de-energized state. If the operating voltage fails, the motor is held in its existing position.
Spring-applied brakes are mainly used for motors in the 56mm edge dimension.

The principle is based on a simple recirculating gearbox, which offers high torque throughput in a compact design.
- coaxial arrangement of input and output shaft
- Input direction of rotation = Output direction of rotation
- High efficiency
- compact construction
- Low sensitivity to shock loads
