Thank you. So did you use encoder in your project ? And seems you used nema23 motor - seems easy install encoder because of size of motor..
in my case I have only my little stepper (
Just to keep things straight, I am kinda jumping from one project to the next. My FIRST encounter was using the 28BYJ-48-5 motor and the little ULN2003 board that comes with it from Ebay. I got this set up running but only at 1 rpm. I have to go in and change the code to increase the speed, and maybe also figure out how to write the code to go Clockwise and Counter clockwise. At my age (75) codes are definately a foreign language. But I am here to have fun.
My second project is from the Arduino "UNO" c/w the 1602 LCD Shield, and using the A4988 or 4983 board to now make this little (28BYJ-48-5) motor react to the command that I program into the LCD Screen. This is where I refered you to the Chuck Fellows YouTube video so you could see what I was trying to do. So far I have the motor buzzing, but I will not advance or retract a position. I read in one of the postings to try editing the pin sequence. So again I'm back to the "Learning Experiences". To answer you question I am using no encoder.
