Thread: Which motor is this???

  1. #1

    Default Which motor is this???




    I want to know if this is a Bipolar stepper motor??

    This motor has got 4 wires & it is made in Thailand...
    When i asked at the shop he just said that he got 2 types of motors
    6 wired & 4 wired.

    So tell me how physically the two types of motors that is Unipolar & bipolar motors differ???[/img]

    simple.
    ask google "stepper motor" it will guide u.

    any way
    if Ur motor has 5 wires it can be used only in Unipolar mode ..
    4 wire only in bipolar mode

    with 6 ,8 wires it can be used in both modes .....


    With 5 wires you CAN use it in bipolar mode!

    using only 4 wires and leaving the common one..

    i think it is not possible to use unipolar motor in bipolar mode.

    1. Run the Motor. Count the number of steps.
    2. Connect a battery to the stepper wires. It will move 1 step. Measure the angle.

    if u have more number of wires,u can drive the motors in any mode.its depends up on ur controller circuit.
    imean bi-polar driver or uni-polar driver.

    @Docel
    i need a favor from u.i made a uni polar driver using PIC16f84a and some mosfets.it worked for some time then failed.(i ended up with a nice HOT PIC).
    regrading this i posted a query in CNCZONE.can u give me some more data to make it work better.here is the link
