I salvaged some stepper motors from a copyer.
They are STP-42D253.
I would like to control them in the same way at shown on:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-KHU4eKoEM I have all components listed in the video - but motor is not the same.
But I do not know what to use as power source.
At the label on the motor it says: A8594121A AX050138 STP-42D253 1.8DEG/STEP 2.6 V 1.2 A SHINANO KANSHI CO. LTD CHINA
The Motor has 6 wires. Yellow Red Orange Brown White Black
I understand everything in the video - programming, components etc.
Could someone explain to me: Should my external power supply be 2.6 Volt 1.2 Amp (seems to be a low voltage) Most stuff in the printer worked on 24 V
I did not find help on this page - but they show Photos of the motor if needed: http://www.cnczone.com/forums/stepper-motors-drives/11228-new-need-help.html
Thank you for reading this through!
