    Stepper Pack
       If you have never used a stepper motor before, let alone control one from a PC, then the “Stepper Pack” provides an easy “connect-and-go” solution. Once you have the Stepper Motor running under PC control the knowledge and confidence you gain by actually using a Stepper Motor is invaluable in applying those techniques to a wide range of applications. The Stepper Motor supplied is one of the most popular types on the market and understanding its principles of operation provides a solid basis for using many other types.

    - For those who are already familiar with stepper motors, the stepper pack offers a very convenient way of adding a stepper to your PC application.

    - For programmers, the supplied DLL means you have a stepper motor that is instantly controllable from within your own program (Visual Basic, C, C++ etc…)

        All that is required to get the stepper up and running under PC control are eight AA size batteries and a small screwdriver. No soldering is required. All you need to do is connect the stepper motor wires to the StepperBee terminals and the battery power pack, then connect the StepperBee to a free USB port using the lead supplied and install the software.

    It’s that simple !

    The circuit diagram for this arrangement is shown below

          For ease of identification, the stepper motor has colour coded wires which correspond to those indicated in the circuit diagram above. The battery packs also use the traditional black for negative and red for positive terminals. It should be noted that each of the two battery packs supplied have their own on-off switch. Both packs must be switched on to operate the stepper motor.

    For those not familiar with circuit diagrams the following photo illustrates the connections.
