  • I recently ordered an Easy driver (ROB-10267) which I am using to drive a stepper motor. It ran fine at first, but then it began to not change direction. In trouble shooting I found the DIR input was being pulled down to 2.6 volts (rather than 5 volts). If I remove the wire from the DIR input it has 5 volts on it. If I put a separate 5 volts to the DIR input it will run in the opposite direction and then run correctly for a while. Any suggestions on why this is happening?

No public wish lists :(
