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 The A supports such active current limiting, and the trimmer potentiometer on the board can be used to set the current limit. The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5. A Stepper Motor Driver Carriers. Select variant Several alternatives are available for this product.

Alternatives available with variations in these parameter s: 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. Note that we carry several stepper motor drivers that can be used as alternatives for this module and drop-in replacements in many applications: The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5.
Free add-on shipping in USA. The coil current can be very different from the power supply current, so you should not use the current measured at the power ste;per to set the current limit. The DRV carrier works with motor supply voltages as low as 2. You can also solder your motor leads and other connections directly to the board.
Note that we carry several stepper motor drivers that can be used as alternatives for this module and drop-in replacements in many applications:. Simple step and direction control interface Five different step resolutions: 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.
In particular, increasing alleggro voltage generally allows for higher step rates and stepping torque since the current can change more quickly in the coils after etepper step.
The resolution step size selector inputs MS1, MS2, and MS3 enable selection from the five step resolutions according to the table below.
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. 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.
Step and microstep size Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e.

For the microstep modes to function correctly, the current limit must be set low enough see below so that current limiting gets engaged. For instance, driving a motor in quarter-step mode will give the step-per-revolution motor microsteps per revolution by using four different current levels. Feedback Comments or questions?
One way to maximize allegor motor performance is to use as high of a voltage as is practical for your application. The VREF pin voltage is accessible on a via that is circled on the bottom silkscreen of the circuit board.

Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e. Please note that measuring the current draw at the power supply will generally not provide an accurate measure of the coil current. This product ships with all surface-mount components—including the A driver IC—installed as shown in the product picture. R CS is the current sense resistance; original versions of this board used 0.
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 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, unipolaar duty cycle will be very low, which also leads to significant differences between average and RMS currents. The headers can be soldered in for use with solderless breadboards or 0.
For customers interested in higher volumes at lower unit costs, we offer a bulk-packaged version without header pins and a bulk-packaged version with header pins installed.
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 on the VREF pin. N header pins soldered? Connecting or disconnecting a stepper motor while the driver is powered can destroy the driver.

The MP carrier can deliver up to 1. Otherwise, the intermediate current levels will not be correctly maintained, and the motor will skip microsteps. Select variant Several alternatives are available for this product.
