The Phidgets 4A Stepper Phidget is a compact controller for a single bipolar stepper motor, designed to be connected to a VINT hub. This device offers control over the motor's position, velocity, and acceleration, in addition to current control with distinct settings for current limit and holding current.

The controller is equipped with two drive modes: the step mode, which designates a target position in 1/16th steps, and the run mode, which facilitates continuous rotation at a predetermined velocity. It also incorporates features for monitoring supply voltage, which can be beneficial for diagnosing power-related issues and managing applications powered by batteries.

The 4A Stepper Phidget is designed with several protective measures, including isolation and polarity protection, as well as safeguards against damage to the power supply from power surges and overheating. It also includes failsafe protection and power-saving capabilities. This device is suitable for new designs and is expected to be available for a decade or longer.

Please note that the 4A Stepper Phidget is designed to be connected to a VINT hub. Always ensure to use it within its specified current limit and holding current to prevent damage. Also, be aware of its failsafe protection and power-saving capabilities.
