Potentiometer “R IN” could be a temperature or light sensing circuit. The explanations for the circuits on these pages cannot hope to cover every situation on every layout. For a 24 volt supply, external circuits can draw up to 25 milliamps. The next diagram shows the modifications that are required for the circuit board followed by the schemtice for the output disable circuit. The main limitation is the ‘leakage’ current of electrolytic capacitors. The following schematic shows how the basic circuit is modified to allow the outputs of the IC 3 to be disabled. Power for the motors can be regulated or filtered and may range from 12 to 24 volts with currents up to milliamps per phase, depending on the particular motor.

The L motor driver IC has outputs that can be disabled by connecting pins 1 and 9 to ground. If you are interested in printed circuit boards please send an email to the following address: The relative motpr of the terminal blocks at the sides and ends of the circuitboard correspond with those in the schematic diagram and the control circuit examples. If stepping rates greater than per second are needed, capacitor C1 can be replaced with one of lower value.

The next circuit mofor TIP Darlington type transistors to increase the current capacity of the driver circuit to 5 amps per winding.

There is no minimum step speed at which stepper motors cannot operate. Also avoid carpeted areas during assembly. There is no limit on how slow the clock input can be. Arduino Prototype uses all standard through-hole components for easy construction, two of which are hidden underneath IC socket.


Bipolar Stepper Motor Driver (2012)

The stepper motor driver is ready to start operation as soon as the the initialization delay is complete. Alternately, capacitor C1 can be removed from the circuitboard and an external clock source connected at terminal ‘T2’. This page cannot give information in this area.

Headphone amplifier is small enough to fit in Altoids tin box, and thanks to low power consumption may be supplied from a single 9V battery.

To do this one of the traces on the circuit 7194 must be modified and a jumper added. In a practical application the direction of the motors load, a heating duct damper for example, would bring the temperature represented by the voltage at R IN back to the range between the HIGH and LOW voltage setpoints.

When handling the board, avoid nonconductive surfaces such as plastics or glass. Therefore, in theory, the values for RT and C1 can be as large as desired but there are practical limitations to these values.

Each stepper motor will have its mootr power requirements and as there is a great variety of motors available. Consult the particular device’s datasheet for their specifications.

This is especially true of circuits such as the “Across Track Infrared Detection” circuits and any 7194 circuit that relies on other than direct electronic inputs, such as switches. There is no limit on how slow the clock input can be. There are links to other stepper motor related web pages further down the page.

Stepper Motor Driver (74194)

The following diagram shows how the disable jumper between pins 1 and 9 of IC 3 and the lead to the disable switch S2 are connected to the circuitboard. Additional NPN transistors may be required to achieve this result, depending on the method used. The use of optoisolators provides complete isolation between the driver and the external control circuit.


The only step angle for this driver is the design step angle for the motor. Due to the lack of error detection and limited step power, this circuit should not be used for applications omtor require accurate positioning.

The driver is designed for medium and low speed applications with motors that draw up to 1. In most cases the stepper driver circuits can be directly controlled from the parallel ports of computers that have 0 and 5 volt output states. There is no CLOCK output terminal on the circuitboard but there is a pad to the right of the LED that can be used if a clock output signal is required.

The maximum RPM at which stepper motors will operate properly is low when compared to other motor types and the torque the motor produces drops rapidly as its speed increases. The pause is to allow capacitor C2 to discharge through R4 and D2.

Basic-stepper-motor-driver-by basic-stepper-motor-driver-by basic-stepper-motor-driver-by both moreover a cup of tea with some suspicion. The following links are for stepper motor related pages that have information on other types of driver circuits and motors. Stepper Motor Driver version of the stepper motor driver. The connections in the following diagram will allow the motor to make single steps.
