The Stepper Motor plugs into one of the Power Output ports on the //control.Node using the included cable. The Stepper Motor can be set to rotate through a given angle or at a given speed with a resolution of 480 steps/revolution (0.75 degrees). The feedback loop that makes it go at a constant speed is contained within the //control.Node, so there is no delay while waiting for the computer to respond. When used with the PASCObot, the Stepper Motor makes it possible to monitor how far and how fast the robot moves using PASCO Capstone or SPARKvue software.
The Stepper Motor can be mounted to the PASCObot or other projects using the two 6-32 inserts included on its exterior. The conventional, 24-tooth spline and custom case match the form factor and attachment hole pattern of a Servo Motor, making it easy to substitute a Servo Motor for a Stepper Motor in your project designs. The Stepper Motor also includes a hub with threaded holes that can be fitted onto the spline to securely mount accessories such as the PASCObot wheels, pulleys, or gears.
