The appropriate place to put your current meter is in series with one of your stepper motor coils. One way to maximize stepper motor performance is to use as high of a voltage as is practical for your application. The chip has three different inputs for controlling its many power states: The motor rotation is not the same, for example, I want the first motor to rotate steps CW and the others CCW starting at the same time.

Also modify the code is similar way. How about if the stepper motor is connected to a belt and the positons steps and direction are controlled using push buttons?

A Stepper Motor Driver Carrier

It could be microsteppinf drivers fault…. Well it should be much of a problem. Pricing Currency In Singapore Dolllars. For more alegro, please see the frequently asked questions. Hi Dejan, Thank you for this great tutorial. Its like affecting kind of magnetic field. Note that we carry several stepper motor drivers that can be used as alternatives for this module and drop-in replacements in many applications: The VREF pin voltage is accessible on a via that is circled on the bottom silkscreen of the circuit board.


Also, note that you will need to perform this adjustment again if you ever change the logic voltage, Vdd, since the reference voltage that sets the current limit is a function of Vdd.

Hi Dejan Nedelkovski, congratulation and thank you for steppr this tutorial. Best regards Markus Reply. Is it possible that the 4 wires of the motor are not like your schematic?

I think that is more dificult to have the control mmicrostepping the motor bipolar u. Thanks again for a wanderfull tutorial! Also, it has a potentiometer for adjusting the current output, over-temperature thermal shutdown and crossover-current protection.

At the end there is one more second delay. The headers can be soldered in for use with solderless breadboards or 0. Great tutorial and thanks. Select variant Several alternatives are available for this product.

According the Delay control the speed of the stepper motor in your code, you wrote a delay microseconds. I can get a direction change by switching the wires around at the controller, but not by changing the code.

Changing the code does nothing. I adjusted the potentiometer and measured 0. Your battery might not have enough power to drive the motor.

The appropriate place to put your current meter is in series with one of your stepper motor coils. Since the input voltage to the driver can be significantly higher than the coil voltage, the measured current on the power supply can be quite a bit lower than the coil current the driver and coil east-to-use act like a switching step-down power supply.


A microstepping driver such as the A allows higher resolutions by allowing intermediate step locations, which are achieved by energizing the coils with intermediate current levels. Hi there and thanks!

I followed your tut same. I made one more example for this tutorial, where I control the speed of the motor using a potentiometer.

This product ships with all surface-mount components—including the A driver IC—installed as shown in the product picture. What code needs to be added? The current limit, I MAXrelates to the reference voltage as follows:.

Connecting or disconnecting a stepper motor while the driver is powered can destroy the driver. The exsy-to-use you provide is excellent, not only here, but all the projects eaxy-to-use publish.
