View Full Version : stepper half stepping mode and timing

10-30-2009, 05:30 AM
Hi to all of you..I have one question.Is bs2 capable of half stepping a stepper motor??i know it can be done by special wiring to a darlington array or by using a stepper driver.but what i need to know is about bs2 timing.i mean for example if i program the bs2 the following code
high 1
high 2
will it act as those two commands were executed together??and onother one question.The pulsout command how much time does it need to execute
for example
pulsout 1, 1750
will it need the standar time for the pulsout command + the 1750 microseconds stated above?
can you share a link to a book or something to read about bs2 timing?
thank you very much..

The stamp can not directly control a stepper motor. You need hardware to control the motor and depending on that hardware you can write code to control that. How do you plan to connect your steppers to the stamp for starters?

I know ihave connected an darlington array..and i can control a stepper but only in full step mode..
