Control the stepper motor through the encoder? Answered
need to control my stepper motor through the encoder. I am using the encoder of an old mouse, but there is no specification of this component.
I measured the tensions and currents of the phototransistor in the mouse circuit. And then, I I calculated the value of the resistor that will be connected at the collector of this component.
The problem is when I am testing these components (IR LED and phototransistor) on the breadboard: the voltage and current are not the same measures the mouse circuit.
My concern is damage the components.
Do have another solution?
I need to know the stepper motor position. I opted for mouse encoder, but it's something wrong.
Maybe you can help.
