I have been working on changing to the new electronics.
Even though I am using the 1.1 version of the Arduino electronics stepper controller boards (they are new to me).
My steppers are only making noise but not moving. My steppers are the keling KL23H256-21-8B the spec sheets are located here
I have them wired green , blue ,brown, white and the red/yellow and orange black are wired together.
I have noticed that I am not getting the orange led’s for the stepper status on any of the boards so I think I am going to check that next.
I have blown 2 l298 chips (I have a few spares)
My big question I have does anybody think my steppers are drawing to much current?? and if so is there a way to get my steppers to work or should I move on to ones that the RRRF sells KL23H51-24-08B the specs are here [www.kelinginc.net]?
I also had to keep my power at less then 70% on the older PIC electronics to get my printer to print or else my steppers would skip steps.

I bought three KL23H51-24-08B steppers from rrrf.org earlier this year and I discovered that the color codes were wildly different than what was listed in the docs. These motors work when wired as follows: A - Black B - Red C - Green D - White Yellow and Blue together Brown and Orange together Before I figured out the wiring was different the motors just sat there and buzzed - no motion. I have no idea why these color codes are different but I thought this might help someone else if it was not widely know already.Hey everyone, I'm using the stepper driver V1.2 with Keling KL23H51-24-08B steppers. I've been having a hard time getting the steppers to run smoothly. I've followed the instructions on the wiki, and have wired everything up correctly (to the best of my knowledge...), but whenever I run the stepper tester program, the steppers won't rotate smoothly - they just vibrate. I tried swapping the polarity on one of the coils (switched A with , but to no avail. At first I thought the issue was because we made our own circuit boards, so I purchased a stepper driver kit from ...Places u can but steppers in PUNE....... Srijan Control Drives(Satara Road) -- very good quality new stepper (2Kg.cm Dynamic holding torque) = 800Rs + 20%+2%+0.2% Tax Pioneer Electronics (Pasoda Vithoba) - new steppers = Range Rs 350 to 400 JUNA BAZAAR -- Old Steppers for Range 30 to 40Rs each. I bought 2 from JUNNA BAZAAR ....i think 75Rs for 2 steppers is not a bad deal (that too without anyyy bargain). Both of them worked the one i selected is : TECA-14769070 stepper used in 5.25" floppy disk drive It has 5 wires... 200 steps/Revolution. I dont know if these help ...I'm building a repstrap. I will be getting the NEMA17 stepper mothers first, long before my electronics. I would want to use the steppers during building to test the axis. Is there an easy way to just get the motors to run forward/backward without using a motherboard and stepper driver boards?? Note: I have a lot of experience in soldering. Sadly that is only on copper water-pipes...... From electronics I know nothing, haha!! regards, Tom My Junk Strap in ProgressI have finally gotten the computer program working with my electronics, and have gotten the extruder exerciser running. My steppers will run with the stepper tester, but not with the stepper exerciser in the program or in build processes. I know that in the arduino program, my step and dir pins are in the correct places. Where do the other wires go? Or is there another error? Also, I think I burned out my L298 chip when soldering it because the stepper tester will not make it work. Only one of the two red/green lights turn on. Is there any ...Hi friends, First of all I am newbie in electronics, In my project i need 2 stepper motors and 3 servos. At present I have successfully made working 2 steppers and 1 servo, however when I added 2nd servo, my main stepper(stepper motor no 1) started fumbling i.e. i need to give a push to make it move. But when I removed 2nd servo it works fine. That is 2 steppers and 1 servo works fine. I think my transformer/power supply is short of capacity. My transformer is of 1 amp, 12 volts, my servos are Acoms ...I've searched the forums but haven't found this question asked. I've got Mobo 1.2, Stepper Driver 2.3 up and talking to each other. I've got 3 different steppers, when I wire them up, they will reliably turn one direction when I use the reprap host software to tell them to move 1mm or 10mm to the right. This happens with 2 different Stepper Driver boards, and 3 different steppers. Problem is when I tell them to move left, they don't move. Any idea what this means? Is it the motherboard? Did I wire something wrong?Yet another question, hope it doesnt bother you. I'm using two stepper motors, the pulses needed for making the stepper work are given by the microcontroller. But, with four lines of each stepper, using two steppers will occupy a whole port (8 bits). Is there any way that i can use only 4 bits and use the two steppers? They are never turn on at the same time.I have recently gotten an artist friend addicted to the Arduino, and she is making a kinetic sculpture. The electronics end of this project is quite simple, with 6 stepper motors moving very slowly. It is ok for these motors to act together in pairs, as opposed to 6 separate movement routines. Anyway, these are unipolar steppers with a single ULN2004 chip for each. We have been able to hook up two of these stepper setups to one Arduino. Now, I am going to be helping her break this out into a large circuit board that we are printing ourselves. I designed a prototype ...Hi all..have built a stepper control using picaxe14m and L293D dual bridge. All works well and according to plan , but i noticed that the stepper gets warm and stays warm when inactive but with power to the circuit. ?? is this normal for steppers or should i cut the 12vdc supply off when idle?? I have tried this with 2 different steppers with the same result, just checked the motor after 15mins inactive but powered and is still warm. the stepper on test at the moment is MSJE200A53..5 wire Both chips are ok, circuit is wired as per manual.Evening all, I am building a small project using an Arduino, motor shield and a couple of stepper motors. I'd like to run all that off one power supply, so can I just run the Arduino off the same 12V as the shield and steppers? The power supply is rated for 1A, but the steppers are not drawing much power, as they are turning very slowly.Im starting a build on a mini cnc router and the steppers I have are too weak to get the speed I want. I have a few smaller steppers and I'm curious if it's possible to drive one axis with multiple steppers, even if they're different motors? Should I use another stepper driver but send the same step and dir signals as for the other motor?Just though I would start a post on the electronics and the possible future I feel that the electronics now are not 100% Reprap and better fit Makerbot. In doing this I would hope that we might look into adapting them for Reprap (Mendel). the Motherboard I think needs to be changed to except 12 volts and go away from the PC power supply header and maybe add a USB connection? The Stepper driver is good (even though hard to get at times) but the electronics can use almost any stepper driver as long as it is compatible with the ...When I load the RAMP firmware into either of my new extruder controller boards, and connect a stepper, all I get is a quiet whine from the stepper. No motion at all. The LEDs are changing in a pattern that would make me think it is in a RAMP mode. These same steppers work with the stepper controller board (at least they turn one direction, not the other) with the same 12v power supply (an ATX PSU from the late 90s). Any ideas what would cause this? -Tom p.s. should I be combining these questions into a single post? p.p.s. ...Hi, For a hobby project i'm driving 2 steppers using Arduino(Accelstepper library) and 3rd-party stepper drivers. When i run both steppers at the same time with the same ammount of steps/second(frequency) then there is no problem. When i run both steppers at different times with different steps/second then it seems that the stepper1 picks up some traces of the steps-frequency of stepper2 (or the other way around). It's really noticeable when i run stepper1 back and forth 200 steps, and let stepper2 run continiously in 1 direction. Stepper2 will pick up noise every time stepper1 ramps and changes direction. Depending on the frequency and pulsewidth ...I was searching for an easy/CHEAP way to control steppers online and found several Parallel/LPT port for Unipolar stepper Motors. i was not able to find a simple Bipolar controller so i came up with this idea based on the designs i saw and what i know about this level of electronics. it has been a while since i worked on this stuff directly and i didnt get to, to deep into it but here goes. If you connect the LPT as I/O to an H Bridge as step and direction X 2 for each stepper and then to the ...I have an Ardupilot and need to controll two steppers. the steppers have their own controler that requires only step and direction input. Also there are 3 servos that are already using the timer. I have tried using tone to output a squarewave to drive the steppers but this only allows one tone to be output on one pin at any time. I also modifiec the stepper library to accomidate the single step line and this would only allow me to step several times on each motor independently and not both together. At present the i need to feed the stepper with a ...Hi. I got a full control circuit working today, driving one of my steppers (nema 23) with a version1.2 stepper card. I noticed that the motor started to warm very quickly, even after adjusting the current with the trimpot. Is this normal?The KL23H51-24-08B stepper motors offered by the RRRF are out of stock both there and from the manufacturer, so I was wondering if the KL23H256-21-8B, offered by the same manufacturer, is an acceptable substitute? What changes to the controller would I need to make? Datasheet for alternate motor: [www.kelinginc.net] Torque-speed curve for alternate motor: [www.kelinginc.net] Datasheet for standard motor: [www.kelinginc.net] Torque-speed curve for standard motor: [www.kelinginc.net]I've been making really slow progress, but finally got the the stage where the Prusa is built, steppers are attached, half of the wiring is connected, my Sanguinololu (1.3a w/ Pololus) is done, the bootloader is burned and firmware (Sprinter) is uploaded. I can even connect to it with Pronterface. Currently, I just have the X amp Y steppers hooked to the Sanguinololu, and they move when when I click the +/- buttons in Pronterface, but they're very erratic. They Y will move forward, then backward even when I'm only clicking, say, +10. The X does something similar, except that ...
