I bought a pair of steppers/EBOWAN 42 Nema 17 Stepper Motor Hybrid 4-lead 2 phase 0.6A 17HS2408 / and a couple of drivers /A4988 Stepper Motor-Driver/.
I am new into steppers and I would like to know how to power my 2 steppers for my project.
Voltage ? And appropriate power supply /battery, wall plug/. Do I really need some speacial power supply ?
Follow the directions on the Pololu web site for their A4988 driver.
Be sure to set the current limit correctly.
The A4988 itself is rated for absolute maxmum of 35V, many people run them at 24V for a reasonable
speed, but you could use 12V or 18V. You’d expect to see 0.25A to 1A (for 24V) or 0.5A to 1A (@ 12V) or so being used by two drivers,
roughly, depending on motor speed I think, they are smallish motors.
