I have read many posts on 8 wire steppers. From what I have read, 8 wire steppers have two coils. I have an ohm meter to determine the coils, but how do I determine which leads to connect for parallel or series connections. I know I can just use two coils and run it as a 4 wire stepper, but how do I know which four to connect other than trial and error. I did find one Youtube that did all this with an O-Scope, but I don't have one of those and really don't want to spend a lot of money for just one motor.
The motor is a Dansa DA299-H8. The Plackard has the following information: Phase Current: 2 Amps Holding Torque: 2.2 N-m Step Angle: Bipolar 1.8 deg 2 Phase Stepping Motor.
Wire Colors: Red Red/White Blue Blue/White Green Green/White Black Black/White
Any help greatly appreciated.
