Stepper Motor and drive for azipod project

Trying to make a program that will allow a stepper motor (Step Syn 103H7126) working with driver BS1D200P10, that will work to control an azipod unit through 360 degrees. very stuck on how to wire the driver up to the arduino uno board? if there was any help would be appreciated cant find much information on the connections between driver and arduino.

Thanks :slight_smile:

I suggest you register at Sanyo Denki and download the manual for the driver.

It looks like quite a capable driver with many functions. You probably only need a basic setup with the STEP and DIRECTION wires hooked up to your Arduino. Don't forget to connect the grounds.

Then any of the AccelStepper library examples should work.

Thank you for the reply, have the manual downloaded, and wired correctly for CW and CCW rotation it seems the step and direction wiring is catching me out at the moment

Thank you

These links may be of interest but without access to the driver manual I can't help further.

Simple Stepper Code

also look up the AccelStepper library
