LMD18200 STEPPER MOTOR DRIVER DOWNLOAD
A bipolar stepper motor REQUIRES two H bridges to drive it, but it also unless it is a very low-power model with high winding resistance also requires a current-control circuit. See the attached table for the sequence. It must always have TWO coils energized at any given time. H-bridge chips are not intended for driving high current stepper motors. Is it referring to unipolar motor? If your project uses a few motors you can buy boards that drive 3 or 4 motors and that may work out cheaper.

If you want to use the LMD H-bridges to control your steppers, you can; you just need to provide an external circuit that does current control.
In order to understand this, you need to understand the difference in operation of a dc motor verses a stepper. You need to under stand Robin’s comment about H-Bridgesdc motors and stepper motors. A stepper cannot do that, so if you don’t lmd18020 control the current then you will just overheat things.
Firstly the LMDT is a single H-bridge, so you would need two of them, and secondly that motor is for a current controllng chopper drive, not a fixed voltage drive. Though excellent, Geckos are pretty expensive. You could also use stspper L as the current controller, but you would still need to do your step sequencing manually, but that’s not great chore.
Tell us what you are using for a power supply, and we’ll go from there. Perhaps because I am only looking at step;er electronics and not the magnetics.

Is it referring to unipolar motor? That diagram refers to a 5-wire stepper. LMD driver for bipolar motor.
To reverse directionthe sequence is executed moto reverse order. I made a wiki search and I haven’t found anything that exactly combines all the stuff.
LMD18200 H Bridge DC & Stepper Motor Controller IC
H-bridge chips are not intended for driving high current stepper motors. I hope this happens because it seems the chip is quite popular.
Robin2 Brattain Member Posts: Is the principle that by reversing polarity the motor will turn by magnetic lmr18200 as opposed to attraction or vice versa? Perhaps the a Gecko drive? I’m not expert,it clear, so your comments raise some further questions. His motor has 6 wires unipolar but he is only using 4 so he still has to energize two windings at all times.

A bipolar stepper motor REQUIRES two H bridges to drive it, but it also unless it is a very low-power model with high winding resistance also requires a current-control circuit.
If you used an L as the H-bridge, you would typically use an L as the current chopper and step controller. You don’t need to xtepper the current, because the mechanics of the stepepr kind of do that automatically: If you buy a dedicated stepper controller like an A or TB, the chip includes all three components: Driving stepper motors with H-bridges is like eating spaghetti with a single chopstick.
I strongly recommend that you read the L datasheet in conjunction with the L datasheet they are designed to work togetherbecause of the understanding of steppwr motor control it will give you.
A dc motor reverses direction by reversing polarity. Thanks in advance for your help.
LMD18200 H-Bridge Module for DC Motor
The ONLY thing that changes is the sequence. You have not provided a schematic of how you wired motorr chip or specified the power supply you are using to power the stepper motor or posted your code so there is not much we can do with no information motof than your report that it is not working.
MarkT Brattain Member Posts: See the attached table for the sequence. A stepper motor reverses direction by energizing different coils in a specific sequence. They are really intended for driving DC motors. It is either moving in 1,2,3,4 order or 4,3,2,1 order. Then I did a bit more research and discovered it would be a lot simpler still to buy motot ready-made stepper motor driver board from Pololu.
