Hi guys, started my first project with the Arduno Uno, Easy Driver and the sparkfun stepper. It was to open and close a heavy drawer automatically using the stepper and setting it's limits with micro switches. Also incorporating a switch on reset (if someone turned off the power whilst in the middle of an operation).
After putting it together it was a breeze to get up up and running, I come from a software dev background
Now I am thinking I would like to beef up the stepper to a higher torque version. With this in mind I was looking at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/180973950166?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_8359wt_1396
in conjunction with the Big Easy Driver http://www.schmalzhaus.com/BigEasyDriver/
Problem: I notice on the spec of the stepper that it states 2.8v and 1.68A... is that right? where would I find such a power supply and how would that work with the big easy driver? e.g is 2.8v too low to operate it?
*** EDIT: Im wondering if its 28v
thanks in advance
