Stepper motors and torque

I have a geared stepper motor and just need to know. In running the stepper motor backwards is the torque the same as running it forwards? It maybe a bad question but I need to know.


HI, it won't make any difference what direction, the specs should be the same.

Tom....... :)

The usable torque in a stepper system depends as much on resonances as anything, which in practice means its best determined by measurement with the actual drivetrain, since this will affect resonance/damping and modify the behaviour.

Direction is not significant as has been pointed out.

You might want to run your actual figures past here for a sanity check. Explain the motor, driver and supply, as well as the mechanical drive-train.
