After pouring over tons of web pages and trying to figure out exactly how steppers work, I think I’ve narrowed it down to three possibilities. However, I have no idea if I’m correct. For all I know, this could be completely wrong. If anyone knows the right way to do this *PLEASE* let me know.
I turned my mulit-meter so when I touch the two probes together, they beep. (continuity mode?)
Then, I went through all the pins, and this is how they line up:
Pin 1 + Pin3 = Beep
Pin2 + Pin4 = Beep
Pin5 + Pin7 = Beep
Pin6 + Pin8 = Beep.
Option1: Take one wire from each pair, twist them together and connect all 4 of them to M+, use the other 4 wires to connect to A,A,B,B on the EasyDriver
Option2: Twist the pairs together, connect the 4 pairs to A,A,B,B on the EasyDriver
Option3: Take one wire from each pair, do not connect to anything, take the other 4 wires and connect to A,A,B,B.
As you can tell, I’m a complete noob, so seriously any help, as rudimentary as it may seem to you, would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
