Slow but accurate – 28YBT-48 Stepper Motor with ULN2003 Driver (DC 5V) Reviews

posted by GeeJiiZet on 09/04/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- 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
Cons:
- 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
Other:
Make sure you have some female-ended connectors to supply power and control signals.
Bottomline:
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.
