    Hi Marnus

    Look here: USBStepper
    and download the manual and you should find the schematic.

    Pin 1 = GND
    Pin 2 = Signal
    Pin 3 = +5V

    Here is another great source of information:

    Happy stepping

    Hi Marnus,

    You may find something here: Boeing 767 Simulator Project: dicembre 2010
    Edoardo does go in another direction now, but back then he was not very
    happy about the OC A/D converter with just 256 levels

    Leo Bodnar and FSUIPC are your friends or maybe even better just use an Encoder.
