Topic: stepper.h Homing on Setup with limit switch (Read 367 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi guys, im new to stepper motor. Im using l298n driver to nema 23.. i want to home the stepper motor on setup using limit switch... help please with the code. Thanks


Step the motor 1 step, check the switch, if the switch is open step again and check the switch and so on until the switch is closed.  Stop stepping and set the position to zero.  Often, once the motor is homed and zeroed, people will move the motor a small amount to move it off of the switch.

Since you are new to steppers, this may help   and   this, too.


An L298 is unlikely to be a suitable driver for a Nema 23 motor

Post a link to the datasheet for your motor.
