Topic: MITSUMI M35SP-9P Unipolar, Bipolar or just Plain Depressed? (Read 2414 times) previous topic - next topic


I have a MITSUMI  M35SP-9P stepper motor which I salvaged from a printer. It has 4 wires so I assumed it was a bipolar motor.
I connected it to the arduino using a SN754410 driver board, loaded up a bit of code to run it and all I got was a few jitters.
So off to Google where I found a datasheet for it at  http://www.mitsumi.co.jp/latest/Catalog/compo/motor/m35sp9_e.html.
This describes the Excitation Method as a 2-2 Phase excitation (Unipolar driving) but no pinout. I have been searching all over Google but cannot find any clues at all.
So does anybody have any idea on how to connect this motor up?

There are normally two reasons for this:-
1) You are trying to step it too fast - try slowing it down.
2) You have the coils connected in the wrong phase. Try swapping the winding of one coil.
