Topic: HSS86 DRIVER with Arduino Uno? (Read 290 times) previous topic - next topic

Dear all;

Is te HSS86 driver working well with Arduino?
I'm thinking of buying this Nema 34 Single Shaft Stepper Motor 1810 Oz-in, KL34H2160-62-8A, and need to control it over Arduino Uno using Pduino (PURE DATA patch).

Do you think it will work properly? I just need to control Direction and Speed of a NEMA 34 8.5Nm. Any code advice?

Thanks to everyone in advance!

What is a "HSS86 driver"?

What is "Pduino (PURE DATA patch)"?

These are not common things that everyone will be familiar with so please post links to their datasheets.

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

Sorry for no being clear enough.

This is pduino, a patch used to control Arduino using PURE DATA.
This is HSS86 driver to control stepper motors, in my case, a NEMA 34.
Here's the kit I'm about to buy, in case I'm available to connect the controller to the Arduino: Driver HSS86 + NEMA34 8N.M

Sorry and thanks again!

I don't know enough (i.e. nothing) about pduino or PureData so I am not going to advise about its suitability.

My instinct is that it represents an extra layer of software for the Arduino that will consume valuable CPU cycles which may prevent the project achieving the required performance - but I have no idea what the Arduino will be expected to do.




Without seeing the stepper driver datasheet I am not prepared to advise about it either. I am always wary when I see devices with D-connectors. They are not usually associated with Arduinos.

That does NOT mean that an Arduino could not control the device - just that I don't know and I don't want you to waste money on my advice.
