Power connections The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5. This product can get hot enough to burn you long before the chip overheats. This carrier board uses low-ESR ceramic capacitors, which makes it susceptible to destructive LC voltage spikes , especially when using power leads longer than a few inches. Step and microstep size Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e. 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.

The appropriate place to put your current meter is in series with one of your stepper motor coils. The MP carrier can deliver up to 1. Allehro alternatives are available for this product. You can also solder your motor leads and other connections directly to the board.
The DRV carrier works with motor supply voltages as low as 2. Take care when handling this product and other components connected to it. Select variant Several alternatives are available for this product.
N header pins soldered? 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. This should be done with the motor holding a fixed position i.

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 unkpolar. Simple step and direction control interface Five different step resolutions: The VREF pin voltage is accessible on a via that is circled on the bottom silkscreen of the circuit 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 on the VREF pin.
The driver hnipolar a logic supply voltage 3 — 5. Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e.
Note that the STEP and DIR pins are not pulled to any particular voltage internally, so you should not alpegro either of these pins floating in your application. 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 alletro detail.

This product ships with all surface-mount components—including the A driver IC—installed as shown in the product picture. The coil current can be very different from the power supply current, so you should not use the current measured at the power supply to set the current limit. 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.
Please note that aloegro the current draw at the power supply will generally not provide an accurate measure of the coil current. In particular, increasing the voltage generally allows for higher step rates and stepping torque since steppr current can change more quickly in the coils after each step. Connecting or disconnecting a stepper motor while the driver is powered can destroy the driver.
The current limit, I MAXrelates to the reference voltage as follows:. This board is a drop-in replacement for our original and now discontinued A stepper motor driver carrier.
