Stepper Motor Power Basics And Motor Connections


The motor power output (speed times torque) is determined by the power supply voltage and the motor’s inductance. The motor’s output power is proportional to the power supply voltage divided by the square root of the motor inductance.

If one changes the power supply voltage, then a new family of speed-torque curves result. As an example, if the power supply voltage is doubled then a new curve is generated; the curve now has twice the torque at any given speed in region 2. Since power equals torque times speed, the motor now generates twice as much power as well.

Hybrid stepper motors have four, six or eight wires; older motors may have five wires, but they will not be covered here.

Four-wire motors are the simplest to connect and offer no connection options. Simply connect one winding to the terminals labeled “Phase A” and “Phase /A” and connect the other winding to the terminals that say “Phase B” and “Phase /B”. If it is unknown which wires belong to which phase, simply use an ohmmeter and test which wires have continuity. The ones that have continuity will belong to the same phase; if the motor turns the wrong direction when connected just swap “Phase A” and “Phase /A”.
