I am a beginner at Arduino and stepper motors. But as a part of my project, I should need to control 4 step motors with Labview.
2 Nema 17 stepper motors (17E2035D4-150-001)
2 Nema 17 stepper motors (PD3-140-42-SE) TRINAMIC stepper motors.
Initially, I used to control 2 Trinamic stepper motors with TMCL and TMCM module. But I got another requirement in my project where I need to use another 2 additional motors. Now I need to control all 4 motors with a single platform (LabView).
I need at least 1/4 micro step for every motor to achieve a resolution of 0.45°. I am not worried about speed. I will use only one motor at a time.
So with my initial research, I found that Arduino and micro stepper drivers are the essential hardware that I should need to build this feature. Also, I found that one Arduino controller is enough to control 4 motors. But I need at least one micro stepper driver to control one motor. So, I need 4 micro stepper drivers.
I am wondering if there is any way that I can control 4 stepper motors with a single Arduino and a single micro stepper driver.
I would kindly request any information that would help me choosing the hardware for this project. Also, I would gladly appreciate it if there are any further tips on how I can integrate this setup with LabView.
Thanks in advance.
