I have a surplus stepper motor which I plan to use in robot project. Unfortunately I have not been able to understand its wiring. (It has10 wires coming out of it.). So I dared to open it up to look inside so that it might clear the matter further. I have not had much success after opening it either. There fore this request for help.
This is what it says on the motor:
Model: A2279-9214 Vextra Stepping Motor4-Phase 0.9DEG/STEP U.S. PAT. NO. 4,385,247 DC 12 V 0.3 A RX7 15859
ORIENTAL MOTOR CO. LTD. MADE IN JAPAN.
I took photos of it in the dis assembled state. Links to those are given below:
Please note that:
- There are 8 poles on the stator.
- The rotor has been divided into two parts. The "teeth" on each part are not in line, the valley on one, is lined with the peak on the other.
- There are 10 wires coming out of the motor.
I have scoured the net in detail. The model no. is not mentioned in the "Obsolete" section of the Oriental Motor website of europe/ singapore.
Having exhausted all my resources I have come looking for help here.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
