Stepper module (DIY)

Regular price $8.00 Sale

The Microduino Stepper is a DMOS micro-step drive with a converter and the function of overcurrent protection. It can be used to operate bipolar stepper motors in full, half,1/4,1/8 and 1/16 stepping modes.

Feature

  • Easy to control;
  • Four optional stepping modes:full, 1/2,1/4 and 1/16
  • Perfect protection mechanism:
    • Overheating shutdown circuit, undervoltage lockout, overcurrent protection;
    • Grounding protection, load short-circuit protection;
  • Adopt potentiometer to adjust the current;
  • Automatic current decay mode detection / selection;
  • Compliant with smoke-free fire (NSNF) specification (ET package);
  • Unique set-in method,saving space.

Specifications

  • Support the bipolar stepper motor;
  • Just input a pulse for the "STEP", it will drives the motor to produce micro-step without the need for phase sequence tables, high frequency control lines, or complex interface programming;
  • The maximum output current can be adjusted via potentiometer, resulting in a higher step rate;
  • Four optional stepping modes:
    • full,1/2,1/4 and 1/16;

Electrical Specifications

  • VCC voltage:
    • 3.3~5V
  • VMOT voltage:
    • 6~25V
  • Maximum operating current:
    • 1.4A
  • Under the Low current sleep mode, the current is less than 10uA;
  • Automatic current decay mode detection/selection;
  • Overheating shutdown circuit, undervoltage lockout and overcurrent protection;
  • Grounding and load short-circuit protection;
