R CS is the current sense resistance; original versions of this board used 0. Step and microstep size Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e. If this is not your local representative, find your local sales rep here. The resolution step size selector inputs MS1, MS2, MS3 enable selection from the five step resolutions according to the table below. The A supports such active current limiting, and the trimmer potentiometer on the board can be used to set the current limit. Also, note that you will need to perform this adjustment again if you ever change the logic voltage, Vdd, since the reference voltage that sets the current limit is a function of Vdd. For details about these power states, see the datasheet.

The resolution step size selector inputs MS1, MS2, MS3 enable selection from the five step resolutions according to the table below.
A microstepping driver such as the A aloegro higher resolutions by allowing intermediate step locations, which are achieved by energizing the coils with intermediate current levels.
A5985: DMOS Microstepping Driver with Translator and Overcurrent Protection
We’ll notify you when there are updates to this product. There are no phase sequence tables, high-frequency control lines, or complex interfaces to program.
The driver features adjustable current limiting and five different microstep resolutions. Special power-up sequencing is not required.
Connecting or disconnecting a stepper motor while the driver is powered can destroy the driver. One way to set the current limit is to put the driver wllegro full-step mode and to measure the current running through a single motor coil without clocking the STEP input.
Four, six, and eight-wire stepper motors can be driven by the A if they are properly connected; a FAQ answer explains the proper wirings in detail.
Allegro MicroSystems – A Full-Bridge PWM Microstepping Motor Driver
Please note that the current limit is dependent on the Vdd voltage. This board is a drop-in replacement for our original and now discontinued A stepper motor driver carrier. For more information, mifrostepping see the frequently asked questions. Select variant Several alternatives are available for this product.
This product ships with all surface-mount components—including the A driver IC—installed as shown in the product picture. For the lalegro modes to function correctly, the current limit must be set low enough see below so that current limiting gets engaged.
Click the image to view larger. The following picture shows how to identify which current sense resistors your board has:. The headers can be soldered in for use with solderless breadboards or 0.
The translator is the key to the easy implementation of the A The resolution step size selector inputs MS1, MS2, and MS3 enable selection from the five step resolutions according to the table below. Microstepping provides increased step resolution, and reduces torque variations and resonance problems at low speed. Special power-on sequencing is not required.
There are no news items available for this product. During stepping operation, the chopping control in the A automatically selects the current decay mode, Slow or Mixed.
We’ll notify you when there are updates to this product. Special power-up sequencing is not required. Step and microstep mptor Stepper motors typically have a step size specification e. The A is a complete microstepping motor driver with built-in translator for easy operation.
Motor connections Four, six, and eight-wire stepper motors can be driven by the A if they are properly connected; a FAQ answer explains the proper wirings in detail. We’ll notify you when there are updates to mmicrostepping product. Otherwise, the intermediate current levels will not be correctly maintained, and the motor will effectively operate in a full-step mode. Internal circuit protection includes: Products New Products Specials!
The DRV carrier works with motor supply voltages as low as 2. We’ll notify you when there are updates to this product.
