Unformatted text preview: turned off, the gear rotates slightly to align with the next one, and from there the process is repeated.Each of those slight rotations is called a "step." In that way, the motor can be turned a precise angle. There are two basic arrangements for the electromagnetic coils: bipolar and Unipolar. The top electromagnet (1) is charged, attracting the topmost four teeth of shaft. The top electromagnet (1) is turned off, and the right electromagnet (2) is charged, pulling the nearest four teeth to the right. This results in a rotation of 3.6. The bottom electromagnet (3) is charged; another 3.6 rotation occurs. The left electromagnet (4) is enabled, rotating again by 3.6. When the top electromagnet (1) is again charged, the teeth in the sprocket will have rotated by one tooth position; since there are 25 teeth, it will take 100 steps to make a full rotation....
