Hi there, I have the following hardware - suggested by the store after explaining my project
- a4983 driver with regulator
- Stepper Motor: Unipolar/Bipolar, 200 Steps/Rev, 42x48mm, 4V, 1200mA
- and a 3 pin potentiomenter dial
- a bag of resitors
- red and black wire
The goal of the project is for a camera track and dolly system to be pulled very very slow.
(for timelapse photography)
The potentionmeter is so that I can have manual control of the steps - (micro steps)
Camera and dolly wiegh about 10lbs and will be pulled in 45degree inclines, up and down.
Motor and boards to be attached to the dolly, which runs along a fix chain, with a cog on the motor.
1: I need to power the board and motor seperately - I have a 12V 3.6amp Led Acid battery, will this run both?
2: Do I need anymore parts, pieces? Do I need an H-bridge???
3: Could someone help with the wireing of these on a breadboard please, I am very new at this
Please help, I am very interested in all of this, am willing to learn and not have someone do it for me
