i got a closed loop stepper motor (IHSS57-XX) and need to control it via Arduino.
This is the manual:
I know that in order to drive the motor to a certain position, i need to send a defined amount of pulses via the PUL-Pins (the amount is depending on full-stepping-, half-stepping- or microstepping-setting) and the motor rotates until i stop sending pulses.
What are the PED-Pins (Arrive position output) for then? Is there a way to tell the motor driver which position to go to in advance?
I saw that is has a Serial RS232-Port, but to my understanding its just used to set some parameters, not to control the motor, is that correct?
Thanks a lot in advance!
