This hybrid bipolar stepping motor has a 1.8° step angle (200 steps/revolution). Each phase draws 670 mA at 4.5 V, allowing for a holding torque of 950 g-cm (13 oz-in). The motor has four color-coded wires terminated with bare leads: black and green connect to one coil; red and blue connect to the other. It can be controlled by a pair of suitable H-bridges (one for each coil), but we recommend using a bipolar stepper motor driver.
Stepper motors are generally used in a variety of applications where precise position control is desirable and the cost or complexity of a feedback control system is unwarranted. Here are a few applications where stepper motors are often found:
The A4988 stepper motor driver carrier is a breakout board for Allegro's A4988 microstepping bipolar stepper motor driver.
The A4988 stepper motor driver carrier with voltage regulators is a breakout board for Allegro’s A4988 microstepping bipolar stepper motor driver.
This robot uses custom length sides and 10" traction lug tires with IG52 136 RPM motors. We have included everything to make it ready to run including batteries, chargers, and a controller.
The MiniSLAM is a programmable autonomous robot built on the Robot Operating System (ROS). It is controlled using a USB gamepad and the ROS Visualization (RViz) application.
