  • Slow but accurate

    posted by GeeJiiZet on 09/04/2012

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month


    - Can be driven from Arduino using the standard stepper motor library.
    - Has high torque
    - 2048 steps per revolution gives accurate control
    - LEDs showing the operation
    - Driver chip on board comes with the package for easy deployment


    - Slow (can't have high torque and high accuracy with high speed)
    - Can get quite hot
    - Not centered (because of the internal 1/64 reduction)
    - Pins on controller board, so can't use normal breadboard male-male jumper wires to connect


    Make sure you have some female-ended connectors to supply power and control signals.


    If you need a strong and accurate stepper motor and don't have a driver yet, this is a good starting point. But if you want more speed, then this might not be the product you are looking for.
