So it might work, it might not work or it might blow up. I have messed around with the resistance values within the program and still can’t appear to get what I am looking for.

However if you go to IGBT’s rather than junction transistors you can radically improve the efficiency and get higher operating voltages. Looking at the 2N datasheet, at mA you’d be looking at a Vce of about 2V.

To calculate this, calculate the minimum base current using the Hfe parameter and then use that current, drive voltage from the controller and the base voltage based on the Vbe at the required current to calculate the resistor value The diode provides a path for this; otherwise, the transistor could be burnt out by switching the output off.

Stepper Motor Resources

Do you want to be able to vary the direction of the motor? The emitters can’t go any higher than one diode drop below the base voltage.


As shown, not even close. In case the Condition in the braces is true, the statements inside the loop will be executed once.

Motor driver using only a 2N transistor? – Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange

Obviously, you also want to look at maximum collector current, required base current to drive the transistor in saturation stepepr the thermal properties. When an input is low then the output of a transistor is high.

Well, by motor driver But if you want to be able to change the direction with your Arduino when you want, without removing the motor and installing it backwards, you can use a H-bridge.

What would the resistor from the base of Q2 and Q4 to the emitter do? Use the same 1N’s. Depending on the rating choose the secondary source appropriately. Using audio amps means microstepping is straightforward, but steper waste power as heat in the amps and steppre need a couple of DACs to generate the waveforms. If it is designed properly: Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

What about braking the motor? However these devices are complex beasts and there are issues like the high input data steppsr. Opto isolators are one way to accomplish a work-around for level shifting from your 3. You don’t need a PNP transistor, it just makes the circuit easier.


Simulation Models

So with two buttons we can control the delay, which in turns control the speed of the stepper motor. You could also replace the 2N’s with something else to allow it to drive heavier loads.

Is the motor AC or DC? This circuit uses N-channel and P-channel 2nn2222.

Is that possible with the circuit you provided above? This does not apply to the low-side transistors.

Each step of this motor completes 1. Wow – great tutorial for a down-and-dirty stepper controller.

For more accurate information, look into the data sheet. I like it I need more information about stfpper all. Here is a H-bridge using four 2N transistors. We will also be designing a Simple Transistor Driver Circuit here.
