Introduction: Run a Stepper Motor With an Arduino

Hi Guys,

This article about How to Run a Stepper Motor with an Arduino. These days stepper motor used in many electronics device like, Camera auto-focus system, CD-ROM for lens movement, 3D printer and CNCs. Stepper motor is available in many different size and types in the market, you can find a stepper motor according to your requirement.

To run a Stepper motor you can program a Arduino to move a motor in precise & defined steps in clockwise and counter-clockwise direction.

So here’s the stuff I have used for this demo.

  1. Arduino UNO
  2. Bipolor stepper motor
  3. Jumper wire
  4. Breadboard
  5. Breadboard jumper
  6. L293D IC
  7. 5-12 volt adapter

Step 1: Watch the Below Video for a Descriptive Step-by-step Guide

Step 2: Circuit Diagram and Arduino Code

Here is the circuit diagram for make connect between the Arduino, L293d IC and Stepper motor. Before you connect with the power source, just make sure all connection as per the circuit diagram.
