Stepper motor driver


#1

Hi I’m trying to figure out which motor driver I can use to drive the two stepper motors listed below:
motor 1: 23KY-K040B-ND
motor 2: P14335-ND

I have found this dual driver here: 1460-1019-ND

But it specifies for 2 phase motors so I’m unsure if they would work for the motors above since I cannot find anything explicit on the phase number in the design spec. I don’t know much about stepper motors so I’m hoping someone with experience in this can direct me on choosing the appropriate driver for these motors.

Thanks,
Zach

Hello Zach,

This driver should work for both of those stepper motors.

The two phase references the number of groups of coils on the stepper motors.

Here is a reference I found from Adafruit that explains the coils and phases. https://learn.adafruit.com/all-about-stepper-motors/types-of-steppers

If you have any other questions, please let us know.

Thanks Travis,

This clears up a lot! I’ll reply back on this thread if I get confused again.
