I want to use this to replace the circuit board of my printer to control the motors. I was wondering if anyone was familiar with this product or if anyone can tell if it would be worth buying? Or if there is another better product I could buy. I emailed them and they said this would cost 85 Australian dollars plus shipping of 20 AUD.. which is equal to 85 USD.
I am also wondering if this would be able to work with the 2 high resolution encoders my printer has.
Another cool thing is that this supposedly comes with a program to control it, already. Which would be nice for me, because I know zero aobut programming. But, I am wondering how programmable it is or if it is like a remote control or if it can be programmed to run automatically in a complex fashion repeatedly.
Basically, what I want to do is make a animatronic type robot, using my old inkjet printer, that is USB controlled. But I want it to move as accurately as possible. I'm not sure how accurate this controller is. I think it said it moves in half steps.. I think I need something that does microstepping. Does that depend more on the stepper motor or the controller?
I hope I am making sense.. I am trying to figure all this out. Any help or input would be awsome.
