  • Has anyone attempted to use this motor with the Seeedstudio Motor Shield V.2.0. I connected this motor and get a lot of chattering and very little turning of the motor. I am not sure if this is a sign of being under powered. I want to use a 4S LiPo battery that puts out 2200mah at 14.8 volts and has a automatic low voltage shutoff that I designed to kick in at 12.3 volts. I am not sure if the Seeedstudio motor shield can drive this motor. I am an ancient experimentor. But this is the first time playing with stepper motors. When I started experimenting, my high sholl instructor consider transitors a passing fancy that would never replace tubes. Any constructive help would be appreciated.

  • I am glad that Fluke is taking at least a little step to resolve this unfortunate situation. I applaude both sparkfun and Fluke for developing a reasonable bandage to this 20 guage shotgun problem. I have used Fluke meters since 1979. After graduating from College with a degree in civil engineering. Civil engineers dabble in electronics also. I have had various Fluke multimeters.

    Yet sadly in 2014, and liking in San francisco, it is extremely diffult to get a Fluke multimeter. I have an old clunky Fluke 8010M that still works great. Yet, I eeded a battery powered multimeter for use in the field. I could not wait several weeks for a Fluke to arrive by mail order. I luckly found a Velleman DVM850BL which is more of a rip off of a Fluke handheld meter than youer substitute. I think that the real solution to this problem would be for Fluke to create a less expensive meter that contain fewer functions for those who do not need a lot of versitility.

    As far as safety, the only meters that were better than Flukes were those vintage analog multimeters manfactured by Simpson.
