Come join us at TheLab.ms 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 (http://bit.ly/2hlv5v1) (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 (http://bit.ly/2glYUhB) (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 (http://bit.ly/2hlEJ0P) (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 (http://bit.ly/2gmaGbv) (5:00) In Part 4, you will learn how to connect a unipolar geared motor.
Stepper motors Part 5: Using the AccelStep library (http://bit.ly/2hlLG1V) (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 (http://amzn.to/2guHM9Z) stepper motors (http://amzn.to/2gPRP7l) L298N Motor Drive Controller (http://amzn.to/2hlstxa)
