The nema 23 stepper motor A4988 can be a microstepping driver for fixing bipolar stepper motors which has built-in translator for simple operation. This means that we can control the stepper magnetic generator with just 2 pins out of our controller, or one for controlling the rotation direction plus the other for controlling your steps.


The Car owner provides five different step resolutions: full-step, haft-step, quarter-step, eight-step plus sixteenth-step. Also, it incorporates a potentiometer for adjusting the actual output, over-temperature thermal shutdown plus crossover-current protection.

Its logic voltage is from Less than 6. 5 V and the most current per phase is usually 2A if good supplement cooling is provided or 1A continuous current per phase without heat mess up or cooling.


A4988 Stepper Car owner Pinout
Now let’s close take a look at the pinout nema 23 stepper motor of the motive force and hook it up using the stepper motor and that controller. So we will become with the 2 pins for the button right side for powering the driving force, the VDD and Ground pins that marilyn and i need to connect them with a power supply of Less than 6. 5 V and in the case that will often be our controller, the Arduino Board which could provide 5 V. This 4 pins are for connecting the motor. The 1A and 1B pins shall be connected to one coil in the motor and the 2A and 2B pins towards other coil of your motor. For powering the motor we make use of the next 2 pins, Ground and VMOT that him and i need to connect all of them to Power Supply by 8 to 35 V as well as we need to use decoupling capacitor with at the least 47 µF for protecting the motive force board from voltage surges.


The next a couple of 2 pins, Step and Direction is also the pins that we essentially use for controlling this motor movements. The Direction pin regulates the rotation direction from the motor and we ought to connect it to among the list of digital pins on our own microcontroller, or in our case Let me connect it to that pin number 4 of my Arduino Board.

When using the Step pin we control the mirosteps belonging to the motor and with each pulse delivered to this pin the continuous motor moves one step. In order that means that we don’t will need any complex programming, action sequence tables, frequency control lines and the like, because the built-in translator belonging to the A4988 Driver covers everything. Here we also need to mention that these 2 pins are certainly not pulled to any voltage in house, so we should not necessarily leave them floating within our program.

Next is the SLEEP Pin and a logic low puts your board in sleep mode for minimizing power consumption if your motor is not available.

Next, the RESET pin sets the translator into a predefined Home state. This Home state or even Home Microstep Position is so visible from these Figures with the A4988 Datasheet. So these are the first positions from where the motor starts and maybe they are different depending on your microstep resolution. If the input state to this pin is a logic low each of the STEP inputs will often be ignored. The Reset pin may be a floating pin so whenever we don’t have goal of controlling it with inside our program we need to connect it to the SLEEP pin as a way to bring it high plus enable the board.


Your next 3 pins (MS1, MS2 and MS3) are for selecting one of many five step resolutions as outlined by the above truth family table. These pins have inside pull-down resistors so whenever we leave them disconnected, the board will operate fully step mode.

The continue one, the ENABLE pin must be used for turning on or off the FET outputs. So a logic high could keep the outputs disabled.

Here’s the whole circuit schematics. I will use the drive entirely Step Mode so I will leave the 3 MS pins disconnected and just connect the Direction as well as the Step pins of the drive towards the pins number 3 and 4 around the Arduino Board and in addition the Ground and this 5 V pins pertaining to powering the board. Also Let me use a 100µF capacitor with regard to decoupling and 12V, 1. 5A adapter for energizing the motor. I will work with a NEMA 17 bipolar Stepper Engine and its wires A and C shall be connected to the pins 1A and 1B as well as the B and D wires into the 2A and 2B pins.
