Current limiting on the StepDuino

Post by DanR » Mon Jul 27, 2015 3:21 pm

Does the StepDuino have settings to limit the current so different sized motors can be used? Most motors are not so fussy about the voltage, but they do not like the maximum current rating to be exceeded.

Yes, you can set the limits using the trimpots next to the outputs:
