So I’ve started trying to put the Ciclop scanner together (after far longer than it should have taken). I’ve hit a little hiccup though as the stepper motor I was planning to use is too long!
I’m not really that up to speed on stepper motors though, so I thought I’d pick the collective knowledge pool here…
The motor needs to be a NEMA17 no more than 40mm long to fit the base. The BOM suggests a “42BYGHW609P1-X11” (which is driven by a A4988 based driver, with a 12v 1.5A supply for driving the motor).
Googling that motor’s product ID doesn’t seem to come back with much that’s useful - there’s an adafruit page which includes a datasheet, but it seems to be for a different motor.
There’s a review on this motor on amazon that says someone has used it to replace theirs, but the description says it’s only rated to 3.45v.
Essentially what I want to know is what to get to make this work… also as a side question I’m wondering if a scanner turn table really needs a 12v stepper motor / PSU?
