69 Threads found on edaboard.com: Printer Stepper Motor
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`ve already determine the middle-wire with my multimeter and now I want to know the correct current and amperage of the stepper. How can I find that out?
I didn`t find any information or datasheet in the i-net. Somewhere I`ve read that it is a 4 Watt motor.If your OLD laser printers are still available, probably you could find out

I suggest, go for plain digital logic.
However, learning microcontrollers is a good idea.
You could also use the printer port of a PC to control stepper motors. Search for details on EDABOARD.

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.

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
