Hi everyone. Firstly excuse my english. I have a project high torque stepper. Actually i'm an radio astronomer. I'm interesting in electronic circuits.
I have an Arduino Uno. i have PIC (16F877A) boards + 1.8" 34N108S-LW8 (2 quantity) from previous radio astronomy projects. Actually its an old radio telecope's parts (5 meter radius telescope).
This telescope not functional now. I want to setup and working full func. Before me, old tech. personel prepared controller boards( PIC 16F877A with ULN2003A) for this telescope.
I'm want fresh setup. but i want handle this job with arduino not pic. there is questions that i want to ask you ;
1) Arduino Uno can handle this project ?
2) How i drive MySteppers with ULN2003A ?
3) Must i use ULN2003A ??
4) How drives BIPOLAR Steppers ?
5) BIPOLAR steppers using H-Bridge ??
An extra thing. There is an adapter for stepper. 220V transformator to this adapter. Stepper cables to adapter. Combine all cables it. 5 pin for output controller.
Here's tech. specs MySteppershttp://www.anaheimautomation.com/manuals/stepper/L010431%20-%2034N%20Product%20Sheet.pdf
