Using Arduino with a nema 17 stepper motor

Hi guys,

We are building a rewinder and we want to use a nema 17 steppermotor.

My supervisor says we need a controller.

Can you recommend controllers for the usage of the nema 17 steppermotor ? :-[

Its the first time i get in touch with arduino so im not that familiar with the topic.

Thank you !

Please post a data sheet for the motor. Without knowing what type of motor (bipolar unipolar), rated voltage, and rated coil current there is no way to recommend a driver. And, yes, you need a driver. A common driver for bipolar steppers with coil current under about 1.5 Amps (more with proper cooling) is the DRV8825.
