Interfacing Stepper Motor with 8051 using Keil C – AT89C51

A Stepper Motor is a brushless, synchronous DC Motor. It has many applications in the field of robotics and mechatronics. The total rotation of the motor is divided into steps. The angle of a single step is known as the stepper angle of the motor. There are two types of stepper motors Unipolar and Bipolar. Due to the ease of operation unipolar stepper motor is commonly used by electronics hobbyists. For more details please read the article Stepper Motor or Step Motor. Stepper [...]

Interfacing Stepper Motor with PIC Microcontroller

Introduction A Stepper Motor is a brushless, synchronous DC electric motor, which divides the full rotation into a number of equal steps. It finds great application in field of microcontrollers such as robotics. Please refer the article Stepper Motor or Step Motor for detailed information about working of stepper motor, types and modes of operation. Unipolar Motor is the most popular stepper motor among electronics hobbyist because of its ease of operation and availability. Here I explaining the working of Unipolar and Bipolar Stepper [...]

Stepper Motor or Step Motor

Introduction to Stepper Motor It is a brushless, synchronous DC electric motor, which divides the full rotation into a number of equal steps. It is also known as Step Motor. For example, in the case of a 200 step motor, one complete rotation (360°) is divided in to 200 steps, which means one step is equal to 1.8°. It can take only one step at a time and each steps are equal. The exact position of a stepper motor can be [...]
