    PhidgetStepper Unipolar 4-Motor

    Alan:

    Will FS2Phidgets to recognize a 1062 PhidgetStepper?
    I am considering possibly using stepper motors to drive an HI and an Altimeter.

    Have the same problem

    I have exactly the same problem, only difference is that I want to modify a magnetic compass using a stepper and a magnet underneath.
    Fs2phidget refuses to control the stepper although it recognises it. I wonder how difficult it would be to make a small vb program that takes data variables from FS and drives the stepper..
    Any ideas folks??

    HI - trying to do the same thing - for the mag compass -

    there is a continuous turn hitec - http://www.servocity.com/html/hsr-14...s_rotatio.html

    But there's no position feedback in this - not sure how this would work - maybe an encoder for feedback in the loop?

    Are you using FS2Phidgets to control?
