I grabbed some motors from an old EPSON dot matrix printer. I think it should be stepper motor.
anybody has done anything with such motor?
how can i use them? anybody has spec on the motor used in EPSON? i see no label on them

I own two stepping motors which I collected from old HP laser printers.
They are from the same type : PM60-H418Z21B RH7-1094 AGEF from Canon.
There isn`t more written on the label.
Each stepper is 4 cm high, has a diameter of 5.7 cm and a flange for mounting. I estimate the weight of one motor to 0.3 kg. (...)

I have a stepper motor salvaged from a printer. I can see that it draws 1.3A/ph. I also salvaged SI 7300 chips from it.
I am trying to drive the motor with that chip, but fail to do so...
I dunno y. The power supply to the chip was 12V 3A.
I want to know wheter this didnt work coz of this low voltage!
I am sure that (...)

I am using ULN2003 to run Mitsumi M35SP-9 stepper motor salvage from old injket printer. The motor is 5 wire unipolar, with 24 V and 7.5 Deg step. so it's 48 steps per revolution.
The problem is than I operate it on 12 V instead of 24 V and instead of 48 step it rotates full turn at 12 steps. I havn't check it on 24 V. (...)

I don't think you will be able to find any datasheet, this is probably from an oki printer and sometimes these are custom made for the printer company.

Mach3 is pretty straight on LPT. I would suggest you to please go through following steps to resolve your LPT issue.
1. Are you sure that your LPT port is in working condition. You may connect an external LPT printer to quickly test your LPT port.
2. Are you sure that you are looking at the right pin at LPT port? please see following p

there are two types of position control; absolute positioning and relative positioning. the stepper motor uses relative positioning. you give the stepper a sequence of steps to move its rotor. at any time you know how many steps you are from some reference. the problem with such a system is establishing the reference and depending

in a unipolar motor you should be able to measure 4 identical resistance values, from the common to all the other coil ends.
Does your motor have any identification of the voltage you should use?
Usually the printer motors can be used with the specified voltage, for example 12 or 24v.
There are also motors (...)

If you have any old printer you can get the motors from it, it usually has a couple of stepper motors.

Don't know if this applies to yours, but my inkjet printer has plastic gears that transfer rotation to the rollers. One plastic gear grips a metal shaft tightly. After a number of years the gear's hub cracked. Its grip on the shaft loosened. Paper movement was affected.
I could not understand what was wrong, because it was difficult to repeat t

I found a problem that affected early Epson printers and possibly any older Bubble Jet printer.
The problem is at first switch-on it starts to initialise then makes a high pitched whirring sound associated with what sounds like gears stripping, then all the lights stay on in error mode.
This can be intermittent and several printers I had (...)

if it has 6 wires it means it is 2 phase bi-polar stepper motor. I will not be able to tell you the exact torque of this one. But looks like something that is used in dot matrix printers. I still suggest you to get a Geared DC motor that is easily available in the market. I hope you are from India. If yes then you have lots (...)

In datasheets from Allegro and Sanken the typical application are without diodes across stepper coils.
Same implementation on real printer drivers.
So , a few questions:
1) is correct to think they use avalanche breakdown of rugged MOSFETs for BEMF decay ?
2) What will happen with torque if I'm putting diodes across coils ?(guess I'll ge

Your motors seem to be 5wire unipolars whuch means a cmmon connection and four coils.
To drive them you need a specific sequence, usually in CNC applications the PC sends a direction and step signal and there is a CPLD/FPGA of microcontroller that translates this into the needed sequence and drives a power stage which feeds the motors.
