Independently control two unipolar stepper motors (each rated up to 1 Amp max without additional cooling) using a PC parallel port and the free software interface provided. Four digital inputs are also provided for monitoring external switches and other inputs.
A DOS based software program (also runs under Windows 3.11 and 9x) written specifically to drive stepper motors is included, complete with C source code. Software provides three run modes and will half-step, single-step or manual-step motors.
Unit is neatly housed in an extended D-shell case. All components including double sided PCB, case and documentation supplied. Software is a free download. Stepper motors are not provided.Specifications

A Visual Basic 6 program, VB_Stepper, is available for controlling stepper motor kits K113, K158 and K179 from a parallel port. All source has been provided to allow you to write your own visual basic programs. It uses the ActiveX component RSTimer which is a high speed timer from Ramon Sala. You can view his other components and software at http://www.elprogramari.com
