CW5045 Stepper driver
« on: June 14, 2014, 02:32:10 PM »
Hi all,

I bough the CW5045 stepper motor driver.

Datasheet: http://cnc4you.co.uk/resources/CW5045.pdf

I will be connecting the STEP, DIR and ENA to a PIC microcontroller. Do I need to include a current limiting resistor with every input or should I connect them directly to the PIC output?
If a resistor is requires, what value would be suitable?

Thanks in advance.

On the 4th page of the data sheet you referenced, it shows that inside the driver, each of these inputs has a current limiting resistor and an LED (for optical isolation), with the current required being < 20 ma. If the data sheet is accurate, that would suggest that additional current limiting resistors would not be necessary or desired.
I get paid to play with robots - can't beat that with a stick.
