Micro Motion Mouse Control
Input 7 to 15 volts AC or DC
Output to motors 0.75 Amps per coil. 1.5 Amps per unipolar motor with 2 coils energized.
Uses 32 diodes to protect drivers from back EMF.
The translator / driver chips are rated at 750 mA per coil or 0.75 Amp.
The minimum Resistance for 24 Volt motor is 32 ohms, for 12 Volts is 16 ohms, for 5 Volts is 6.66 ohms per coil. You can put 10 ohm, 10 watt resistors in the V+ motor wires to reduce the current. More Amps = more power but more heat. If you don’t need the power, it is best to use motors with higher resistance coils. Using a 12 Volt battery on this unit connected to the 24 volt motors of a printer carriage with 40 ohm coils, it moves the head and platen smoothly at a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio and as fast as the printer would at 0.3 Amps. 4 connectors are included and 26 terminals. (2 extra)
When designing your device, don’t concern yourself about direction. That is easily reversed by just turning the connector over.
