This should be done with the motor holding a fixed position i. 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. The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5. 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. This board ships with 0. The headers can be soldered in for use with solderless breadboards or 0. R CS is the current sense resistance; original versions of this board used 0.

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.
The headers can be soldered in for use with solderless breadboards or 0. Otherwise, the intermediate current levels will not be correctly maintained, and the motor will skip microsteps.
This carrier board uses low-ESR ceramic capacitors, which makes it susceptible to destructive LC voltage spikesespecially when using power leads longer than a few inches. 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. This product can get hot enough to burn you long before the chip overheats. 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.
R CS is the stepprr sense resistance; original versions of this board used 0. Add to cart Add to wish nuipolar. Simple step and direction control interface Five different step resolutions: Unipolar motors with five leads cannot be used with this driver. Print Email a friend Feeds. Select variant Several alternatives are available for this product. 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.
For more information, please see the frequently asked questions. A version of this board with headers already installed is also available. Products New Products Specials! A Stepper Motor Driver Carriers. For the microstep modes to function correctly, the current limit must be set low enough see below so that sepper limiting gets engaged. Note that we carry several stepper motor drivers that can be used as alternatives for this module and drop-in replacements in many applications:. This board ships with 0.
The A supports such active current limiting, and the trimmer potentiometer on the board can be used to set the current limit. Feedback Comments or questions? This should be done with the motor holding a fixed position i. Using the driver Minimal wiring diagram for connecting a microcontroller to an A stepper motor driver carrier full-step mode. Connecting or disconnecting allefro stepper motor while the driver is powered can destroy the driver. The DRV carrier works with motor supply voltages as low as 2.
The appropriate place to put your current meter is in series with one of your stepper motor coils. Shop Blog Forum Support.
A4988 Stepper Motor Driver Carrier
N header pins soldered? 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. Power connections The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5.
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. In particular, increasing the voltage generally allows for higher step rates and stepping torque since the current can change more quickly in the wtepper after each step.
