Product Features

Accurately control up to 4 unipolar stepper motors with this controller. Connects to a USB port.
Product Description

The PhidgetStepper Unipolar allows you to control the position, velocity, and acceleration of up to 4 unipolar stepper motors. The 1062 can be used in applications that require precise positioning and continuous rotation, at low cost.

Note: Because most unipolar motors are resistive limitied, the 1062 does not support current control. If your motor requires current control, have a look at the 1063 - PhidgetStepper Bipolar 1-Motor or the 1067 - PhidgetStepper Bipolar HC.

Previous Versions of the 1062


We do not carry enclosures for the 1062_1, because motor controllers are prone to overheating when kept in enclosed spaces for extended periods of time with no airflow.
