Stepper motor driver

Which stepper motor driver works best with Arduino due . I am making a robotic arm with 6 axis . I want to use nema 17 PL. Guide me with the required components. Thank you in advance.

I can pick something that would work nicely but what is best is a bit more difficult. NEMA 17 stepper motor is a stepper motor with a 1.7 x 1.7 inch (43.18 x 43.18 mm) faceplate. The NEMA 17 is larger and generally heavier than for example a NEMA 14, but this also means it has more room to put a higher torque. This is a mechanical spec not an electrical spec. You can use a BTS7960s, they would work great but they will drive over 40 amps. Please give the motor ratings for a better answer. his response is to help you get started in solving your problem, not solve it for you. Good Luck & Have Fun! Gil

Before buying a driver make sure it can work with the 3.3v signals from the DUE.


What are the mechanical requirements to drive the arm mechanically?
