Hi I'm Harish.
Currently i'm doing a project of integrating stepper motor along with PID controller programming for steering Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV).
And my project's main scope is to select and integrate stepper motor to replace the PMDC motor and control the same using PLC by a PID controller. Based on the magnetic sensor input error has to be calculated and accordingly stepper motor has to steer the steering set up.
Currently we are using 48VDc battery and BLDC motor and controller for driving AGV.
So can i know which type of stepper motor and the encoder best suits for my project?
