The VREF pin voltage is accessible on a via that is circled on the bottom silkscreen of the circuit board. The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5. The current limit, I MAX , relates to the reference voltage as follows:. The newer A offers overcurrent protection and has an internal k pull-down on the MS1 microstep selection pin, but it is otherwise virtually identical to the A A microstepping driver such as the A allows higher resolutions by allowing intermediate step locations, which are achieved by energizing the coils with intermediate current levels. For the microstep modes to function correctly, the current limit must be set low enough see below so that current limiting gets engaged. Print Email a friend Feeds.

Several alternatives are available for this product. The following picture shows how to identify which current sense resistors your board has:.
Low Voltage ｜Sanken Electric
Since the input voltage to uunipolar driver can be significantly higher than the coil voltage, the measured current on the power supply can be quite a bit lower than the coil current the driver and coil basically act like a switching step-down power supply. For the microstep modes to function correctly, the current aloegro must be set low enough see below so that current limiting gets engaged.
A stfpper driver such as the A allows higher resolutions by allowing intermediate step locations, which are achieved by energizing the coils with intermediate current levels. Unipolar motors with five leads cannot be used with this driver. The VREF pin voltage is accessible on a via that is circled on the bottom silkscreen of the circuit board.
Minimal wiring diagram for connecting a microcontroller to an A stepper motor driver carrier full-step mode. One way to maximize stepper motor performance is to use as high of a voltage as is practical for your application.
One way to set the current limit is to put the driver into full-step mode and measure the current running through a single motor coil while adjusting the current limit potentiometer. Connecting or disconnecting a stepper motor while the driver is powered can destroy the driver. Select variant Several alternatives are available for this product. Also, if the supply voltage is very high compared to what the motor needs to achieve the set current, the duty cycle will be very low, which also leads to significant differences between average and RMS currents.

This product ships individually packaged with 0. The DRV carrier works with motor supply voltages as low as 2. This should be done with the motor holding a fixed position i. The MP carrier can unipolaf up to 1.
Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e. Also, note that you will need to perform this adjustment again if you ever change the logic voltage, Vdd, since the reference voltage that sets the current limit is a function of Vdd. Motor connections Four, six, and eight-wire stepper motors can be driven by the A if they are properly connected; a FAQ answer explains the proper wirings in detail. R CS is the current sense resistance; original versions of this board used 0.
Note that the STEP and DIR pins are not pulled to any particular voltage internally, so you should not leave either of these pins floating in your application.
Some unipolar stepper motors e.

Products New Products Specials! You can also solder your motor leads and other connections directly to the board. Another way to set the current limit is to calculate the reference voltage that corresponds to your desired current limit and then adjust the current limit potentiometer until you measure that voltage aolegro the VREF pin.
More generally, rewiring anything while it is powered is asking for trouble.
In particular, increasing the voltage generally allows for higher step rates and stepping torque since the current can change more quickly in the coils after each step. This board is a drop-in replacement for our original and now discontinued A stepper sgepper driver carrier.
Note that we carry several stepper motor drivers that can be used as alternatives for this module and drop-in replacements in many sllegro. Add to cart Add to wish list. The resolution step size selector inputs MS1, MS2, and MS3 enable selection from the five step resolutions according to the table below.
