I have a project at work that is using an Anaheim Stepper motor model number 34Y108S-LW8 being driven by an Anaheim Stepper motor controller model number MLA10641.
I have the motor wired to the controller in parallel and am providing to the controller from an Arduino uno r3 the clock signal, direction signal, and the on-off signal. The motor uses 200 steps per revolution but I am microsptepping it to 400 steps per revolution.
This is a simple project as all I need are direction and speed. I don't need to count steps. I just need a speed controller that I can change the direction of the motor with as well.
I know there is a better setup to do this by using a DC motor but these are the pieces I was provided with to build this project.
Can you guys help me with controlling this motor? Help with code and ideas would be much appreciated.
