Having a magnet in close proximity to stepper motor.

I'm currently working on a project that involves a stepper motor being near a strong magnet. I haven't bought the stepper motors yet but I'm wondering as long as I keep the magnet a few inches away will I be all fine?

I suspect you won't have a problem but you will need to experiment.


Thanks, I'll let you know what happens.

Unless the magnets a foot across a few inches will reduce the mangetic field hugely, field falls as the cube
of distance for dipole fields like from a magnet.
