Controller / interface
my friend can obtain small ( 874 oz-in ) stepper motors with mircostepping drivers. Motors are 2 phase, 2 / 4 amps 8 wires.
My question is controllers / interface units
Can I just build breakout board like Phils http://pminmo.com/.
Do controller boards need to be matched to motors and drivers in regards to voltage and amp?
I though it was the drivers whom regulated the voltage and amps, and the controller just provided the step and direction.
Can drivers be hardwired to printer cable?
or just purchase a commercial controller like Gecko?
