I try to run some stepper motors with my arduino, but have some problems.
I have the following setup:
Stepper Driver: Pololu A4988: http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1183
Stepper Motor: Nanotec ST2818L1006-A http://de.nanotec.com/downloads/pdf/1199/ST2818L1006.pdf
Power Supply: sunpower S-100F-24 http://www.sunpower-uk.com/product/S-100F-24/S-100F-24/default.htm
First i tried to run another motor for testing, and this did work quite fine. (It was a mercury motor SM-42BYG011-25)
I could do with it all i wanted with the AccelStepper Library.
But then, when I tried to run the same script with the Nanotec motor, nothing happend but an unconstantly wiggling...
What could be the problem?
I'm not 100% shure if I connected it right. As you can see in the datasheet, I tried the Bipolar serial connection.
Therefore i only connected the black&green and the blue&red cables to my motordriver.
Another question is the current limiting. Do I have to limit it to 0.69A (because the motor has a max. of 0.69A/Phase) or
do I have to limit it to 2x0.69A = 1.34A, because it has two phases? What is the easiest way to measure this limited current?
I would really happy if someone could help me with that.
Thanks and regards
