The Big Easy Stepper Motor Driver

Stepper (or step) motors are really cool. They are perfect for automation or any time you need a motor to turn to a specific point, at a specific speed, in a specific direction. And, unlike typical motors, steppers are able to do all of this, and hold their position when they are not moving – The trade off is that they cant move as fast, and you have to power them at full power all the time, but you get tot ...

Spining BLDC(Gimbal) motors at super slooooooow speeds with Arduino and L6234

First of all You won’t find here any information on high speed BLDC motor driving. For that purpose You need to know rotor’s position, so You have to measure back-EMF or use Hall sensors (not needed here). For basic info about driving BLDC motors here is best “classic” articles on internets: Driving a three-phase brushless DC motor with Arduino – Part 1. Theory Driving a three-phase brushless DC motor with ...

Arduino PID Motor Controller

INTRODUCTION : The development of high performance motor drives is very important in industrial as well as other purpose applications.  Generally all high performance motor drives use quadrature encoders and PID control because of its simplicity and precise control.  The quadrature encoder acts as a feedback from the motor, it is connected to the microcontroller for furthur processing. With the use of Ardui ...

Servo Motor Simulation via Arduino UNO

Hey everyone. I hope you will be fine. As you know that last time, we had started Arduino UNO course and given you a brief introduction how to simulate the LED blinking via Arduino UNO and its implementation in proteus ISIS. Now, today we are going to implement Servo Motor Simulation via Arduino UNO in proteus ISIS. What is Servo Motor? With the help of servo motors you can position the motor shaft at a spe ...

Brushless DC (BLDC) motor with Arduino – Part 2. Circuit and Software

In this post I will describe the hardware and the software part of a project involving the use of BLDC (Brushless DC) motor salvaged from a broken XBox 360. This is a second installment in the series of posts related to Arduino and brushless DC motors. Please see the first part for a bit of info on the theory behind the commutation sequence. Once you understand the commutation sequence for the particular de ...

Arduino Motor Shield

We are not the first to make an Motor Shield for Arduino.  But could be that we are the first that make a Motor Shield with a minimum of flexibility. We are studing a WiFi robot with camera controlled by Arduino. The robot will be controlled by browser. But we find a problem with an existing shield: the pin SPI to controll Ethernet shield (that become WiFi shield) are the same of motor shield. So we reengin ...

Tutorial: Arduino Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield – Part 1: Servos

This post starts a small (or larger?) series of tutorials using the Arduino Motor/Stepper/Servo Shield with the FRDM-KL25Z board. That motor shield is probably one of the most versatile on the market, and features 2 servo and 4 motor connectors for DC or stepper motors. That makes it a great shield for any robotic project The series starts with a tutorial how to drive two servo motors. And if this is not wh ...

DIY Dual Stepper Motor Driver Shield for Arduino

Stepper motors are brushless DC motors which can move in discrete steps thanks to the special coil arrangement inside. They are very popular in DIY and industry projects which require accurate mechanical movement control.  In this SoloPCB project, we are building a dual stepper motor driver shield based on two Allegro A4988 ICs which can supply up to 35V and 2A and provide overcurrent and thermal protection ...
