Posted by Kreutz at 6: Since no suitable drivers were found we embarked on designing our own. Links to this post.

It is triggered by the incoming pulses so the output is normally high and Q7 off.

Kreutz-4 DIY Bipolar Micro-Stepper Drive

mardus-kreytz The limit is probably 75W per transistor, assuming a large heatsink and possibly forced cooling. Why do you need 2 phases ON; wouldn’t a single phase ON move the motor the same?

It also provides the clock for the three axle drivers. The features used as advantages in our firmware are highlighted in bold, firmware constraining characteristics are in red. This was done to ascertain that the driver acted as we wanted in real life and to find out what motor current we needed for a reliable feed. Puedes mandarme un enlace a mi mail: The output of the micro-controller to the reference processing circuit are two We used Basic, as programming language, because the code was intended to be used as a learning tool, and well commented Basic code is simpler to digest.


When you turn off one winding, the kickback is dissipated in the diode, as can be seen in the pictures below. Let’s go a little deeper on some of the highlighted areas: A unipolar stepper motor has two windings per phase.


The steppers are 1. Mardus-kreuutz Interrupt mode, the WDT gives an interrupt when the timer expires. Desoldering pump Soldapult or equivalent with anti-static tip. Easy and economical upgrade path to higher output bipolar or unipolar power boards.

My understanding is they are related to the Blanking time where Q1 short to the ground the output of Q16 reset signal when Sync signal go Hi PB2 inverted ; This force R to Low during a short time 3. What I want to mico-stepper clear is that there are many ways to get any stepper motor running, our design objectives were always uunipolar into micro-stepping driving unipolar motors, but also to get the most of them, in terms of power, accuracy, efficiency and performance.

In normal operation mode, it is required that mardus-krektz system uses the WDR – Watchdog Timer Reset – instruction to restart the counter before the time-out value is reached. Torque is directly proportional to coil current, so theoretically maximum torque is also limited versus the equivalent parallel connected bipolar motor.

This must be done in one operation. This test used a motor voltage of 30V and a motor current of 10A.

On the power stage there are also two voltage regulators: Posted by Kreutz at 8: My version of Mardus-Kreutz project. Adding snubber diodes to the FETs will seriously hamper this decay so that is not an option. One common problem with chopper drivers is motor noise.


Blanking time versus Switching transients. The objective of the introduction of a “Blanking time” is to overcome the problem presented with switching transient currents as soon as a power Mosfet is Turned-ON.

If the system doesn’t restart the counter, an interrupt or system reset will be issued. The reference analog waveform comes from the translator, half of the low pass filter is physically located on the power stage board and its function is to attenuate noise introduced on the ribbon cable, delivering an analog signal to the chopper’s comparator comprising unattenuated frequencies from zero to about 1.

Fine Long nose pliers or equivalent tool. Voltage is allowed to build up, until you get avalanche breakdown in the fet.

Switching alternately each of those windings a magnetic pole can be reversed without switching the direction of current, so the commutation circuit can be a lot simpler. R22 is mounted on the mardus-kerutz and when the temperature rises above 65C the comparator will flip, pulling the L enable line low. Also the exact temperature is not that important, as long as the driver shuts down when it gets too hot.

The direct addressing reaches the entire data space.
