Introduction to Stepper motor As it name implies, stepper motor rotates in discrete steps , each step corresponding to a pulse that is supplied to its stator windings. A stepper motor is digital electromechanical device where each step command pulse result in a movement of shaft by a discrete angle called step angle of the motor. It is used when motion and position have to be precisely controlled. By keeping count of number of command pulse ? By changing frequency of command pulses ? Ideally suited to open loop position and speed control. How ? For more visit:- 3

Single Stack VR stepper motor : 4/2 pole VR motor Construction: As shown in the figure it has 4-poles in stator and 2-poles in rotor . Four phases namely A, B, C, D are connected to DC source through semi-conductor switches (? ? , ? ? , ? ? , ? ? ) respectively. In order to rotate the rotor in particular direction, the phases must be excited in proper sequence with the help of semi-conductor switches. For more visit:- 6
