I'm looking at a project where a couple of "beefy" bipolar stepper motors are being used.
Motor info (all I can get at the momnet):
Current rating 2.8A
Phase resistance 0.9 Ohms
Phase inductance 2.5 mH
The motors are being driven at the moment by a controller which can supply 2.2A (1.6A RMS) but it is just enough and needs a little more.
I'm looking at the L6208 which SEEMS to be somewhat better than the L298 but the L298 LOOKS a lot beefier. :roll:
Also the L298 seems to have been around for ever, it's even in my 1992 SGS-Thompson PAPER databook. :shock:
So advice on anything newer/better/cheaper would be appreciated.
The usual "URGENT", hold my hand, do all the work for me apply of course. :lol:
