is an integrated circuit board that improves the performance and precision of stepper motors. Stepper motors are used in a wide range of applications where you have to move something a certain distance precisely!
For example, they are used in your inkjet printer for moving the ink cartridge back and forth over the paper. Stepper motors are precise and really cheap compared to the alternative, Servo motors. There is one drawback of the steppers though they actually cant tell if they actually moved to the position you told it to. If you try to block the path while you printer is printing, it will can not recover from the move and get back to work.
What uStepper does is remove this drawback by continuously monitoring where it is, and where it should be. Thus uStepper can compensate if anything goes wrong this is what we call operating with feedback. uStepper both has the ability to drive the stepper motor, monitor position and has an onboard programmable microcontroller with a wide range of available inputs and outputs. (Arduino Compatible)All this is packed into a really small printed circuit board that fits right on the back of those small stepper motors (which are referred to as Nema 17). To make uStepper accessible for both professionals, hobbyists and students, it is compatible with the Arduino IDE. Here you can easily program your uStepper to do exactly what you need it to do!
The uStepper Robot Connectivity kit is for DIY folks that want to 3d print and construct their own uStepper robot to use with the uStepper. The kit consists of:
