Hello,

Could someone explain how changing the DIP switches on a driver (for stepping not amperage) effects the movement of the motor.

For example: If I switch my driver from [{S1-OFF S2-OFF S3-ON} (MS 16, P/R 3200)] to [{S1-OFF S2-OFF S3-OFF} (MS 32, P/R 6400)] is it a flat increase in distance travelled? So instead of 2" of travel per se it would travel 4"?

Thank you,
D

You need to provide a link to the datasheet for your stepper driver.

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

The various settings seem to be printed on the cover. Take a photo of that and of the DIP switches and post them here. See this  Simple Image Guide

changing from 1/16 microstepping to 1/32 microstepping reduces the effect of a step by a factor of two
(hardly surprizing if you think about it - the steps are smaller)
