Today is my jackpot day...the boss is starting to throw out some old junk and I'm scoring!
Anyhow, he gave me an old AIRPAX stepper motor from an old teletype machine (old machine of some sort...console/printer/VAX?)
I was wondering what the pinouts might be.·
It's a bi-polar stepper (2 groups of 3 wires going in to separate parts of the motor--see pic).
Red, Yellow and Green/Grey (colourblind) go in to one port and Black, White, and Blue/Purple.
My quick assumption is that there are 2 center-tapped coils and that the green/Grey is #1 coils' CT and the Black is #2 coils' CT.
So my question is....is there a standard colour format that would indication which of the other colours are the coil tops and coil bottoms?! (+/- if you will!?)
