Hey guys, this is my first post here. I have been tasked at work with creating a module that will turn two stepper motors to move two worm gears to two specific locations depending on a button press. I'm sure ill be back for help with the programming, because its a bit beyond anything I have yet to try, but for now I'm making my parts list. is there a specific PSU that is made for things like this? or do i have to Frankenstein something together?

I'm using 5014-897 NEMA 14 motors with L298N modules, and most likely an UNO R3 board.

Any advice would be great, thanks so much

You need to post a link to the datasheet for your motors.

An L298 is a poor choice for driving stepper motors.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.
