I am trying to get a stepper motor running with Arduino.
I read this tutorial:http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/StepperUnipolar
And I think that could work fine for me.
I bought a 12V stepper motor, which seems to much current the arduino can give.
So I will get an old floppy and try it with the one mentioned.
But since I am really starting to understand all the Voltage and Ampere and Millliampere situation. I would like not to ruin anything.
Therefore can anybody tell me the exact pieces I have to order to make this work.
I have the Potentiometer, I have an Arduino Uno, I have all the wires.
What I miss is the long black thing in the middle of the breadboard. What is that and what exactly is the name to order it.
Also the wiring is made for the duemilanove I believe. Is there a wiring photo for the Uno?
What I ultimativley like to achieve is that this stepper motor powers a plastic feeder that turns after a pressure sensor is pressed.
