Hello and thank you for taking timeout to ponder my problem.
I am using a Arduino Uno r3 with a Nema 23 Stepper Motor 23HS41-1804S. The motor needs 5vdc and 1.8amp current to run properly. I have tried a couple of shields however when I find one that can handle the current it needs more volts than the 5 I have running to it. The motor will be running often for the application so it is important that the shield can handle the current for long periods.
This is a low current stepper motor but low current google searches on a stepper shields brings up specs that don't match up. Is this a common problem?
I have purchased and returned a number of shields due to this problem. I have limited access to online resources as I can only use the internet on off peak hours 2amto 8am. This makes my trial and error even more difficult. I am doing my best to understand this new hobby any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and be well.
