Manual code for stepper motor ?
« on: March 08, 2011, 08:28:32 AM »
  IIUC...
  Stepper motors go from one state to another depending on which coils have current going through them.
  Introducing DC current pulses through coils 1, 2, 3, 4, one at a time should cause the shaft to rotate ?
  Edit:
  I didn't think it could easily be hacked until I tried a few codes and found that works.
  two coils [L/R], 9vdc [battery]...
  Charge coil L, Charge coil R.
  Reverse polarity.
   Charge coil L charge coil R.
  ...turns the motor.
  Neat little excersize in stepper motor code hacking.
