  • 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 :(
