Big Easy Driver

I haven’t made any adjustments on that. Are you using the Enable pin on your board at all? Initially, a diagonal pair of source and sink FET outputs are enabled and current flows through the motor winding and the current sense resistor, RSx.

For the arduino code for the driver, im going to be using AccelStepper Library. Then you can tell it to go home, and it biildr go back 10, steps to 0.

The down side is it is a bit slower to get readings from, the plus side is that you can connect it to bbig 2 digital pins you want.

They are perfect for automation or any time you need a motor to turn to a specific point, at a specific speed, in a specific direction. Microstepping Most stepper drivers offer something called microstepping, and the Big Easy Driver is no exception. Page 6 of 6 Added to your cart! Gig you have a 4 wire stepper, awesome!

I do get a bit confused with libraries though importing them and making them work.

The arrow indicators on the current adjustment potentiometer are backwards. If you have a 6 wire stepper, it will be slightly trickier. It’s the next version of the popular Easy Driver board. It is just here because I believe if you post code, you should post everything you need to make it work.


This is a simple, but very powerful stepper motor with a 4-wire cable attached. Just take note when you wonder why telling it to step steps barely rotates the motor.
