Alternatives available with variations in these parameter s: The 1A and 1B pins will be connected to one coil of the motor and the 2A and 2B pins to the other coil of the motor. The MP carrier can deliver up to 1. During stepping operation, the chopping control in the A automatically selects the current decay mode, Slow or Mixed.

How To Control a Stepper Motor with A4988 Driver and Arduino

If so, any help in this direction would be greatly appreciated. You can also solder your motor leads and other connections directly to the board.

You should use an DC adapter power supply rated at least 2A. To achieve high step rates, the motor supply is typically much higher than would be permissible without active current limiting.

Connecting or disconnecting a stepper motor while the driver is powered can destroy the driver. Hello I have a question, could you show the scheme with the potentiometer? I was successfully flashed my code to my Arduino Uno but when I changed one potentiometer both motor miccrostepping would change at the same time.


Hi Dejan, thanks for your useful tutorial. The A supports such active current limiting, and the trimmer potentiometer on the board can be used to set the current limit. Inside a huge PCB factory: This board is a drop-in replacement for our original and now discontinued A stepper motor driver carrier.

I would like to run two steppers with one arduino and 2 A but with one power supply. In our case they are the pins number 3 and 4 on the Arduino Board and they are named stepPin and dirPin and the setup section we have to define them as an outputs.

The current limit relates to the reference voltage as follows: Also you could find more details about this, the timing, in the datasheet of the stepper driver. 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 datasheet Reprap 3D Printer Website. Current limiting To achieve high step rates, the motor supply is typically much higher than would be permissible without active current limiting.

Hello again, mocrostepping your code with the potentiometer, in your function you have the following code: I tried the same circuit with NEMA 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. Or you could calculate the rpm if you measure the time the arduino needs to execute the steps full cycle.


I think I got ya. The appropriate place to put your current meter is in series with one of your stepper motor coils. I noticed all the stepper libraries I have found need to use PWM pins to work.

Allegro MicroSystems – A DMOS Microstepping Driver with Translator and Overcurrent Protection

But result is like on the video. Power connections The driver requires a logic supply voltage 3 — 5. 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.

Hello Dejan, Trying to control a stepper motor with a manual pulse generator hand wheel type. This product ships individually packaged with 0. Now using this for loop we will make the motor make one full cycle rotation.
