Hey there,

Using an Arduino Uno, I was wondering if you could help me with the code to drive a stepper motor using the rpm of a rotor shaft.

The rotor shaft rpm is read by a Photo interrupter.

The rotor shaft is read every 15 seconds.

If the rotor shaft rpm greater then 80, stepper turns 15 degrees CW.

if rotor shaft rpm less then 80, stepper turns 15 degrees CCW.

I would really appreciate any help you could give.

My email is
