Used with the CNC Shield, or a ramps style 3D printer controller main board, to drive larger steppers
Suitable for larger motors or higher current requirements
WARNING - Do not apply motor driver power (12-30V) source without first connecting all motor wires.
The driver will likely burn its self up, 5V from Arduino rails is fine but NO power to green power connector until motors are connected!
This product is a carrier board or breakout board for THE DRV8825 2.5AMP Micro-stepping Driver with Translator and over current Protection.
Simple step and direction control interface
SIX different step resolutions: full-step, half-step, quarter-step, eighth-step, sixteenth-step, and thirty two step.
Adjustable current control lets you set the maximum current output with a potentiometer, which lets you use voltages above your stepper motor’s rated voltage to achieve higher step rates
Intelligent chopping control that automatically selects the correct current decay mode (fast decay or slow decay)
Over-temperature thermal shutdown, under-voltage lockout, and crossover-current protection
Short-to-ground and shorted-load protection
