I am a little confused about controlling a two stepper (x and y) cnc.
The motors are where i am losing the plot a bit due to them being pretty old school. They are Astrosyn Y163-4 motors and the data sheet can be found here
The motors say they are 5v 1A but the data sheet seems to say they are 1A at 34v…
On Farnell the product info says “The Y163 is a 1A/5V Stepper Motor with 1.8° stepping angle, 5R resistance, 9.5mH inductance. This stepper motor requires external drivers to control them, with components including a power supply, logic sequencer and switching components.”
This has me more than a little confused!
I was hoping to run these with an Uno (GRBL), running from a 24v supply and DM556 drivers. Am I barking up the wrong tree?
Any help is appreciated,
