I am completely new to all this so I apologise for the newbie questions, though I have tried looking for an answer before posting.
I have an Arduino mega and for my new project I have two questions:
First question is how I could control 3 strepping motors. I understand I would have to get the Arduino Motor Shield(that is because of the increased load demands of the motor I guess?) but that can only drive 1 stepper motor. Is there another way? Can I stack more Motor Shields(probably not)?
The second question has to do with servos. I realise I have to use external power as they tend to draw significant current. Is it possible to damage the arduino board? I mean, I suppose servos like this one
could draw -depending on the load- as much as 500ma or even more. Could the board handle that?
That's it for now and thank you in advance.
