I realize these are lighter servos, but I am hoping for higher response and faster movement than your example. Additionally, that sample code uses delays for the steps and that will cause some issues when we start adding more complex functions in the loop and hook up various sensors. If you need more power, just use an external voltage supply for your driver board. You can use these boards to drive DC motors or unipolar stepper motors. Obviously, the code moves the stepper one at a time, so it is not ideal if you need very high precision and coordination.

The default stepper library that comes pre-installed with the Arduino IDE supports the full-step method only and has limited features.

Let me know, if I can help you any further! If you open one up you will see the tiny plastic gears. Your email address will not be published. If it is just one motor turning at a time you can use the runToNewPosition function.

I just recently received 2 off these stepper motors from amazon and was looking for more information on stepler. Instead, you can use a transistor for each phase and a flyback diode to prevent voltage spikes when the power to the coil is turned off and the stepper motor acts like a generator briefly back-emf.


Thanks for your great article. G of the ULNA are accessible. The default stepper library that comes pre-installed with the Arduino IDE uses this method. Would you please let me know your suggestions? Using the AccelStepper library we can accelerate and decelerate stepper motors.

Would it be as simple as multiplying your code X 2 or do you see it as more complex. Hi Tom, I am glad the article helped you.

I have a question though. Note that for nigher speeds, you will likely need a higher voltage DC source.

Do you mind to reply to my email? Naturally, make sure you download and install the AccelStepper library first! Why only half the first time? Also, some units are better quality than others.

Here are the detailed specs of the 28BYJ stepper motor. The first parameter of the Stepper constructor is the number of steps. When using the full-step method, 2 of the 4 coils are powered at each step.

Stepper motors can turn out very complicated, therefore, it is not that easy to look up this number. The drivers can be paralleled for even higher current output.


I may not have it installed at all, I think I just copied the code posted, not sure how or where to go for the accel library installation. A separate V 1 Amp power supply or battery pack should be used, as the motor may drain more current than the microcontroller can handle and could potentially damage it.

Hi Chris, it is just the arrangement of the wires in the connector out of the ULN and the connector of this particular motor. You can use these boards to drive DC motors or unipolar stepper motors.

My last question is: Bipolar stepper motor control with Arduino and an H-Bridge. The external shaft has eight teeth.

Hi Andrea, many small errors add up: That is all I can think of right now…. Thanks for the intro. Hello, I was looking at the first code for the arduino and I was wondering if you can get the code to run only wih rather than in an infinite loop.
