I am looking to send signals to a stepper motor drive, which in turn moves a stepper motor. The motor is intended to actuate a linear drive up and down between two known positions repeatedly. The driver requires a +5 volt square wave for motion, and it requires a steady +5 V signal or steady 0 V signal at a different port to determine clockwise or counterclockwise direction of that motion.
I am wondering the quickest and easiest way to purchase and arduino and program it accordingly. As someone new to arduino's, I would greatly appreciate your input and help. Thanks so much.
