Manufacturer: Schneider Electric

This post explains for the Stepper Motor NEMA 17.


NEMA17 Stepper Motor


A stepper motor to satisfy all your robotics needs! This 4-wire bipolar stepper has 1.8° per step for smooth motion and a nice holding torque. The motor was specified to have a max current of 350mA so that it could be driven easily with an Adafruit motor shield for Arduino (or other motor driver) and a wall adapter or lead-acid battery.

Some nice details include a ready-to-go cable and a machined drive shaft (so you can easily attach stuff). We drove it with an Adafruit motor shield for Arduino and it hummed along nicely at 50 RPM.

This is high torque Nema 17 stepper motor with 1.8 deg. step angle (200 steps/revolution). Each phase draws 2A, allowing for a holding torque of 45Ncm( It’s ideal for the RepRap Prusa, Mendel 90, Rostock and similar 3D printers, as well as CNC and robotics applications.
