Or could it be that this stepper is bi-polar and my controller unipolar?
Thank you for the answer.
Of course I’m not just putting current into the motor.
I use a Unipolar Stepper controller from Phidgets (http://www.phidgets.com/products.php?category=13&product_id=1062) because I use it with max/msp and they objects for all their devices…
Again, I hear the magnets activate, but the head doesn’t spin! I must be doing something right since I feel/hear the motor working. But something is wrong!
Also, I can’t find a power supply with the right current/voltage combination!
Any help would be appreciated… thanks!
Batteries won’t last long with a motor like this. You better use a power supply.
I tried to make it work with a little higher current, and I could feel the magnets move inside. Unfortunately, the head doesn’t spin…
Any clues about what’s happening here?
No public wish lists :(
