Topic: Stepper motor troubles, i need ideas. (Read 922 times) previous topic - next topic


Hey everyone, im new to the forum. I came here to seek help running stepper motors with my arduino. I have a 6 wire unipolar SM, ive isolated the different coils with my ohm meter and this is what ive done so far... the stepper hookup connector is (red,brown,blue,yellow,white,white), red/brown/white = one coil with center tap, blue/yellow for the other. Ive hooked it up with a ULN2003A....
O1 = Red
O2 = Brown
O3 = Blue
O4 = Yellow
with whites on common.

and the arduino at 1,2,3,4 to the ULN2003A at I4,I3,I2,I1

I ran a simple program in arduino that pulses...
The stepper takes two steps forwards and two steps back.
Ive reversed the motor coils and it still does the same thing, ive reversed the logic inputs and still the same result.
Im really having a hard time with this, anyone have any suggestions? I'm kinda stumped on where i should go from here...



i assume you meant i need to run...

I thought this was just a higher torque version what i originally ran?
I still get the same problem, the shaft just goes back and forth, this time more violently.
Do you think the problem is in the sequence or in the wiring?

Thanks for your help.

Either but they are both the same thing if you think about it.

Try swapping motor pairs, there are a lot of combination to try.
