The name unipolar is derived from the fact that current flow is limited to one direction. As such, the switch set of a unipolar drive is fairly simple and inexpensive. The drawback to using a unipolar drive however, is it's limited capability to energize all the windings at any one time. As a result, the number of amp turns (torque) is reduced by nearly 40% compared to other driver technologies. Unipolar drivers are good for applications that operate at relatively low step rates.
