No torque with easy driver

Post by Combat Medic » Sat Aug 11, 2018 5:35 pm

I've got an easy driver board that I've hooked up to a stepper motor. I'm driving it with 19.7 volts dc. If there is no load on the stepper it works perfectly. But it has no torque at all. I sounds like it is trying to move, but it doesn't make a single step.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

I'm an idiot. I forgot to adjust the potentiometer. Everything is fine now.
