Stepper motors open and close the inlet valve that controls air flow into the pump. The motor is mounted on the side of the compressor, with a small gear attached to its shaft. This gear meshes with a larger gear on the valve, which opens or closes the valve depending on which way the motor turns. As the stepper motor turns, it moves the valve gear back and forth. This action opens and closes the valve, allowing air to flow into the pump or be released from it. The stepper motor is controlled by a computer, which tells it when to open and close the valve. This allows the compressor to operate at different speeds, depending on the needs of the system.
