This NEMA-17 motor has an integrated Planetary gearbox with a 99.5:1 ratio. At 2.5 Amps (maximum current), this gearbox stepper can produce a maximum torque of 477 kg-cm. The gearbox is only rated for 50 kg-cm of continuous torque, and 1000 kg-cm for brief overloads. Loading this gearbox stepper beyond the torque rating of the gearbox will shorten its useful life.
Motor Controller and Connection
The 3313 stepper motor connects to the 1063 - PhidgetStepper Bipolar 1-Motor.
The following table shows how to connect the motor wires to the board connectors to produce a clockwise rotation in the stepper motor when increasing position. To wire for counter-clockwise rotation when increasing position, reverse the red and blue wires.
|Wire Color || Black || Green || Red || Blue |
| Board Connector || A || B || C || D |
Note: Make sure to unplug the power cord from the 1063 before switching wires around.
Connecting the motor directly to a power supply will destroy the motor and void the warranty. If you want to check your motor make sure it is connected to a constant current / chopper drive controller.
