The direction of the output shifting is controlled by switch S1. This page cannot give information in this area. The main limitation is the ‘leakage’ current of electrolytic capacitors. The price for 1 Assembled circuitboard is These sheets contain a wealth of data and circuit design information that no electronic or print article could approach and will save time and perhaps damage to the components themselves.

Stepper motors that require less than 12 volts can be controlled by the driver by removing diode D3 from the circuitboard and connecting a external power supply to the control section of the driver.

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

The use of optoisolators provides complete isolation between the driver and the external control circuit. If RT is set to 1 Megohm, the calculated step rate will be 0. You can control lights, fans, AC system, computer, printer, amplifier, robots, garage door, security systems, motor-driven curtains, motorized window blinds, door locks, sprinklers, motorized projection screens steppe anything else you can think of.

It is available for other sources such as Mouser Electronics – stock number and Jameco Electronics – stock 71494 LSAN motr well as many other sources.

Consult the particular device’s datasheet for their specifications. If you use any of these circuit ideas, ask your parts supplier for a copy of the manufacturers data sheets for any components that you have not used before.

Stepper motor driver circuits

The LM, positive 5 volt regulator used on the circuitboard can also be used to 744194 power for external control circuits. Pads have been provide have been provided on the circuitboard for the jumper. Each segment can handle currents of up to milliamps and voltages up to 36 volts.


It is an irreplaceable tool for troubleshooting and repairing electronic equipment by determining performance and health of electrolytic capacitors. This is especially true of circuits such as moror “Across Track Infrared Detection” circuits and any other circuit that relies on other than direct electronic inputs, such as switches.

Stepper Motor Driver (74194)

The stepper motor driver on this page replaces the Unipolar Stepper Syepper Driver That was previously available through this web site. A toggle switch could be used to select between single and continuous steps if the steppef Megohm potentiometer was included in the circuit.

If the circuit board is to be placed in a plastic case, do the assembly work on a wood or metal surface that is connected to earth. Disabling the outputs will allow the motor to turn freely and can be used conserve power if the motor is not needed for steper period of time.

Although the circuits are functional the pages are not meant to be full descriptions of each circuit but rather as guides for adapting them for use by others.

The only step angle for this driver is the design step angle of the motor itself. The only step angle for this driver is the design step angle for the motor. If you have any questions or comments please send them to the email address on the Circuit Index page. There is no minimum step speed at which stepper motors cannot operate.

Unipolar Stepper Motor Driver

With C1 removed, the practical limit on the step rate is the motor itself. The price for 1 kit of parts 741944 a circuit board is The price for 1 Assembled circuitboard is 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. Leave one wire connected permanently and change the other three coil leads as 7419. Due to the lack of error detection and limited step power, this circuit should not be used for applications that require accurate positioning.


The following schematic is for the printed circuitboard version of the stepper motor driver.

Data sheets, if available, will also help determine this frequency. The pause is to allow capacitor C2 to discharge through R4 and D2. For this reason be prepared to do some experimenting to get the results you want.

Although the 74HC is sensitive to damage from static discharge, once it is installed in its socket the IC is very safe as all of its pins are connected to the 5 volt supply or to common through low impedance paths.

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.

Depending on the current required for the motor, small heatsinks may be needed for the transistors.
