Both can deliver about 1. Am I on the right track here? Again, the MQ-3 is heater-driven so be aware that the sensor will become warm and may even emit a smell at first. Just email returns sparkfun. The s that you bought will work just fine. Microstepping allows for smoother, quieter, more accurate control, at slower speeds.

The MQ-3 is a heater-driven alcohol sensor that outputs an analog signal usually interpreted somewhere between and depending on how long you let the sensor warm upwhich through the use of your Arduino code and calibration, can be interpreted for whatever use you need. Although this board should be able to run most systems without active cooling, a heatsink is recommended for loads approaching 1. Even though there are some 30 pins on the Big Easy Driver, we only need a few to get this up and running.

The library even keeps track of the position of the motor. Power the driver with v — If using a wall adapter, make sure the adapter has at least enough current for the motor. It is best to power the driver with the highest voltage you can up to 35V max for this driver. Are you using the Enable pin on your board at all? So we need two pairs of wire that have the highest resistance in the group. Power it up and wait second You can pick one up from sparkFun here.


Get back in touch with tech support. These small steppers are a great way to get things moving, especially when positioning and repeatability is a concern.

You can feel these steps if you slowly turn your stepper by hand. This is a [Bipolar] http: After seconds motor starts to vibrate near settling points with loosing of position and of torque. Gecko Drive — Step Motor Basics.

SparkFun Recommended Stepper Motor – 68 oz.

Page 6 of 6 Added eaey your cart! Click ask a question to be the first. The arrow indicators on the current adjustment potentiometer are backwards. Code The code for this buldr a bit wacky as with most digital sensorsbut it is split up pretty nicely, and is as easy to read as it can be.

Both drivers can theoretically deliver 2A or a bit more to a stepper motor coil, with lots of heatsinking and forced air cooling.

Big Easy Driver

Do NOT get easu sensor wet with alcohol! Iv been using 2 of these with 2 NEMA 17 2a steppers for a telescope for a few years nowI easj them at 1. So I burned this chip out pretty much immediately, I followed the hookup guide and loaded the sample sketch hooked up my ROB stepper motor and gave it 12volts and the Allegro A burned right up. Sasy seems to be the problem? These steppers have a threaded shaft, which allows them to be used as a linear actuator.


Here is basically what I have, please pardon my schematic or lack of knowledge Also make sure your power lines are at least a 22g or 20ganything smaller will defiantly cause the chip to really heat upwhy???

We’ll get back to you within a business day.

Big Easy “but it aint”

Hi, we have an operator online, click ‘start chatting’ to contact us in real-time. It is best to power the driver with the highest voltage you can up to 35V max for this driver. This stepper motor driver is getting very hot.

These are just what they sound like, solderless pin headers! Page 2 of 6 Added to your cart!

For the arduino code for the driver, im going to be using AccelStepper Library.
