HI I'd like to get this kit but want to know can I use it to control the stepper motor for extremely slow operation. For example to drive a lead screw of 2mm a distance of 100mm over a period of ten days continuously? Ie taking 10 days, 240 hours to cause a carriage on a linear motion rails to move 100mm? If someone can confirm this then I'm getting the kit to start developing!
OR to do this will I need some extra like a gear box for even finer resolution? I see the on board pot can produce 10 steps per second. What can i go down to via the Windows GUI?
The GUI has the same minimum setting as the board of 10 steps/sec. I was able to modify the code on the motor control board to allow down to 1 step per second and the GUI was able to read this and allowed me to run at 1 step per second. This was a very minor change that was quite literally changing a 10 to a 1. To go below 1 step per second you would have to change the code more significantly, since it was not designed to have multiple seconds per step.
