Hi, I’m trying to setup the A4988 Stepper Motor Driver with Voltage regulator. I’d like to use REF pin to set the current limiting. It’s quickly referenced on the web site “Another way to set the current limit is to measure the voltage on the REF pin and to calculate the resulting current limit (the current sense resistors are 0.05Ω). See the A4988 datasheet for more information.” Since I’m by no means an EE, I have no idea how to figure it out from the datasheet.
The electrical specs for my motor hooked up as Bipolar in series are: Volts=8.4, Amps=1.4, Ohms=6, Impedence=27.2 mH, Holding torque=3.0 Nm. 0r 425 oz-in
Based on this, what is the procedure for setting up this motor using this process?
Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
I did view the getting started guide, but it uses the other method for calibration. Plus the diagrams are clear enough for a noob like myself. I’d prefer to see actual pictures and maybe a step-by-step video. I’m connecting it to a Max32 from kellyware.com.
