The driver chip can drive the motor(tested).The question is the motor will be about 10feet from the driver chip (PCB with controller and driver chip).Will the length of the cable from driver chip to motor affect the reliability of the motor operation (miss steps), or is there a way to calculate the maximum length of cable or type of cable to use giving the information from the motor and chip.Any suggestions will really be helpfull (eg change the design).
But... Why not put the driver where the motor is and then use the long wires for control signals (which will be few compared) instead - that's the pro way of doing it.
The control signals from the controller (PIC18) are 5V TTL; I am assuming the output pins of the controller are not designed to drive long lengths of cables (10feet) at 3KHz.
Would a TTL signal be reliable over a cable of that length (more reliable than the motor driver signal over 10ft length)?
The link has the data sheets for the motor an driver chips(used as dial controls).http://www.microcomponents.ch/products/switec/switec.htmlThe driver chip I am using is the X12.017
