Come join us at Education Center in Plano TX to learn how to use Stepper Motors on the Arduino platform. In this class we will be covering the following:

Stepper motors Part 1: Introduction ( (7:30) This presentation will introduce you to stepper motors. In Part 1, I discuss the basics of stepper motors and their most typical configurations. All demo sketches are available on Github.

Stepper motors Part 2: Connecting a unipolar un-geared motor ( (11:30) In Part 2, you will learn how to wire up and use a unipolar un-geared motor.

Stepper motors Part 3: Controlling a unipolar un-geared motor ( (6:15) In Part 3, you will learn how to control the speed of an un-geared using a potentiometer.

Stepper motors Part 4: Connecting a unipolar geared motor ( (5:00) In Part 4, you will learn how to connect a unipolar geared motor.

Stepper motors Part 5: Using the AccelStep library ( (7:45) In Part 5, you will learn how to connect a unipolar geared motor and control it using the AccellStep library. Parts Needed:

Arduino UNO ( stepper motors ( L298N Motor Drive Controller (
