In order for the linear stepper motor to operate properly, it will need to be connected
to a motion controller or indexer and a stepper motor driver (with power supply).
See diagram 1 for operation flow.
. A program or motion profile will be written on a PC or laptop and downloaded to the motion controller/indexer. This program will contain parameters such as speed, acceleration, deceleration, desired move, etc…
. Based on the program parameters, the motion controller/indexer will command the needed number of steps in the desired direction in order to move the desired amount.
. The microstepping driver will take the step & direction input signals and move the motor using the drivers set current. The bus voltage of the microstepping driver determines the max motor speed.
. The motor will move the desired amount at the programmed speed and acceleration.
