GR214 with Vertical Connectors

The GR214 is a powerful and cost effective FPGA based step motor drive meant for high power applications. Designed from the ground up to eliminate resonance from stepper motors, the GR214 is in a class above competing products.

Proprietary resonance compensation ensures a step motor will move with maximum smoothness and minimum vibration. Using Geckodrive’s resolution upscaling at all speeds means motor smoothness is optimized at all resolutions and velocities. Every microstep is broken down into higher interpolated microsteps to compensate for motor vibration due to coarse microstepping at extremely low speeds. The resolution upscaling will change depending on the microstep resolution chosen via DIP switch to be sure your motor is getting the smoothest possible operation at all times.  

Motor current can be set with a tri-mode option, using either an onboard DIP switch, external voltage or external resistor. The G214 can drive stepper motors ranging from NEMA 8 all the way up to NEMA 42. High speed morphing will get the most torque out of any stepper motor at high speed.

Allowing for drop-in replacement of IM483 and IM805 motor controls means technology upgrades are simple. Competitive pricing allows users to have the latest technology and the best motor performance for very little cost. 


  • Multiple Resolution Options: Fourteen selectable resolutions, from half step to 256 microstep, in both binary and decimal
  • High Power Operation: Up to 80VDC and 7A with motors from NEMA 8 - 42
  • Aggressive Protection: Short circuit protection makes the GR214 virtually indestructible and a user-replaceable fuse protects against catastrophic failure
  • Quick Troubleshooting: Push button self-test for fast in-the-field error diagnosis and LED blink codes for error reporting
  • Independent Axis Standby Adjustment: Adjustable standby current using on board trimpot or external resistor allows for every axis to have a different standby current setting based on load and duty cycle
  • Extreme Motor Smoothness: Next generation multiband resonance compensation runs a motor smoothly and with no vibration at every speed
  • FULLSTEP Reporting: Optoisolated Full-Step output sends a pulse out at every full step location on the motor
  • Sub-Microstepping: Interpolation between each microstep with resolution upscaling for smooth motion at all speeds
  • High Speed Morphing: Morphing to full step at high speeds increases motor torque output by up to 30% at high speeds
  • Tuned Out of the Box: Automatic low speed smoothness compensation means the GR214 is ready to run a motor smoothly as soon as it is powered up the first time
  • I/O Protection and Isolation: Optically isolated inputs and outputs insure that noise is not an issue and that the drive is protected against input spikes
  • Previous Generation Compatibility: Form, fit, and function compatibility with the discontinued IM805 and IM483 allows for quick technology upgrades
  • Multiple Connector Options: Available with a vertical or horizontal connector the GR214 can accommodate most space constraints
  • 2017 Golden Mousetrap Award Finalist: Recognized as a breakout product for 2017 by being named as a finalist for a Golden Mousetrap Award.
