Hi to all.

I would like to know if it possible control the PhidgetStepper Bipolar HC with an Arduino board.

No, Phidgets require usb connection to a computer with a USB host controller and running Windows, macOS, or Linux. If you want something portable, the best option is a PhidgetSBC or Raspberry Pi.

Understud.

However I think that the API library of the Phidgets send with a Serial over USB the commands from the PC to the controller.
There is a list of these commands?

Thanks

We don't have much documentation for the inner workings of our libraries, but you can find the full source code here:

Phidgets are not serial-over-usb devices, I'm not sure where you got that idea?

Hi Patrick,

Is just a my idea that Phidget uses a serial-over-usb communication.
My idea comes from the fact that many devices generally work like this.
Sorry about that.
