I’m doing a project which involves linear actuation driven by a stepper motor and trying to find a motor driver to run this specific motor:
The specification of this motor is here:
I was considering to use 4988, but the motor’s Rated Current/Phase (2.0A) goes over 4988’s Continuous Current/Phase (1A). Actually I don’t see any stepper drivers on Polulu whose Continuous Current / Phase is higher than 2A.
Do you think I can still use 4988? If not, which driver would you recommend?
Any advice would be very helpfu. Thank you so much!
