Driver for 4 wire (and 6 or 8 wire) bipolar stepper motors from 5 to 50Vdc using externally supplied 5V logic levels for controlling STEP and DIRECTION.
Inputs are opto-isolated making it ideal for CNC applications using a PC running suitable software (see User Manual below for details).
Can also be controlled using a microcontroller or simply two debounced switches connected to 5V.Features
Technical and operational details can be found in the documentation below.Specifications

PRE-ASSEMBLED Electronic Module (AS) Product Formats Info
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
