Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e. Take care when handling this product and other components connected to it. In particular, increasing the voltage generally allows for higher step rates and stepping torque since the current can change more quickly in the coils after each step. Note that we carry several stepper motor drivers that can be used as alternatives for this module and drop-in replacements in many applications: Several alternatives are available for this product. This product ships individually packaged with 0. Simple step and direction control interface Five different step resolutions:

The following picture shows how to identify which current sense resistors your board has:. For more information, please see the frequently asked questions. Using the driver Minimal wiring diagram for connecting a microcontroller to an A stepper motor driver carrier full-step mode. The current steppet, I MAXrelates to the reference voltage as follows:.
UCN5804B Original Pulled Allegro Stepper Motor Controller IC 16 Pin
This carrier board uses low-ESR ceramic capacitors, which makes it susceptible to destructive LC voltage spikesespecially when using power leads longer than a few inches. Otherwise, the intermediate current levels will not be correctly maintained, and the motor will skip microsteps. R CS is the current sense resistance; original versions of this board used 0. Note that we carry several stepper motor drivers that can be used as alternatives for this module and drop-in replacements in many applications: One way to set the current limit is to put the driver into full-step mode and measure the current running through a single motor coil while adjusting the current limit potentiometer.
Step and microstep size Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e. This should be done with the motor holding a fixed position i. Four, six, and eight-wire stepper motors can be driven by the A if they are properly connected; a FAQ answer explains the proper wirings in detail. One way to maximize stepper motor performance is to use as high of a voltage as is practical for your application. Note that the STEP and DIR pins are not pulled to any particular voltage internally, so you should not leave either of these pins floating in your application.
Connecting or disconnecting a stepper motor while the driver is powered can destroy the driver.
Print Email a friend Feeds. 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 basically act like a switching step-down power supply.
SLAm Stepper Motor Controller, Allegro SLAM, Unipolar
Unipolar aallegro with five leads cannot be used with this driver. The chip has three different inputs for controlling its many power states: This product can get hot enough to burn you long before the chip overheats.
The coil current can be very different from the power supply current, so you should not use the current measured at the power supply to set the current limit. The appropriate place to put your current meter is in series with one of your stepper motor coils.
Power connections The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5. Take care when handling this product and other components connected to it.
This board is a drop-in replacement for our original and now discontinued A stepper motor driver carrier. Several alternatives are available for this product. For customers interested in higher volumes at lower unit costs, we offer a bulk-packaged version without header pins and a bulk-packaged version with header pins installed.
Some unipolar stepper motors e.
N header pins soldered? Motor connections Four, six, and eight-wire stepper motors can be driven by the A if they are properly connected; a FAQ answer explains the proper wirings in detail.
Low Voltage ｜Sanken Electric
This product ships with all surface-mount components—including the A driver IC—installed as shown in the product picture. Simple step and direction control interface Five unipolarr step resolutions: The resolution step size selector inputs MS1, MS2, and MS3 enable selection from the five step resolutions according to the table below.
Schematic diagram of the A stepper motor driver carrier both green and black editions. A Stepper Motor Driver Carriers.
Also, if the supply voltage is very high compared to what the motor needs to achieve the set current, the duty cycle will be very low, which also leads unnipolar significant differences between average and RMS currents. Feedback Comments or questions?
