Stepper Motors Examples with PIC16F88 -Flowcode Simulation

We are using FlowCode Simulation Software for Programming and Testing with PIC16F88 for Simulation of this project .It shows how to use and simulate and program Stepper Motors for use in different projects.

For concept of Different types of Motors and their properties please see:
Motor Types-Introduction
Motor Types- DC Motor
Motor Types- AC Motor
Motor Types- Special Types of Motor
Servo Motors

Here is the Flow code program:
Three Stepper are used to depict different configurations in which they can be used .Here functionality of auto off capability is used.It can be programmed to moved back to its original position if required.

Tutorials for Flow Code Programming and Simulation

Stepper motors are programmed to moved in fixed after delay of one second.

More concept and properties of Stepper motors please see: Stepper Motor

Micro-controller used is PIC16F88 with switches.

In video you will be able to see stepwise execution of program and their effect on Stepper motors in panel which is by default in the software .

  1. Hi there, could you please share where could those stepper motors be purchased?

    1. For Stepper Motors first you need to decide which application you want to use it in.There are commercial motors you can purchase from some verified dealers.For project having small power( DC Voltage 0-12-24V) you can purchase small Stepper Motors which are available on amazon or ebay for affordable price.

      Important point is You should know your requirement and then only you can decide on ratings torque or power etc.
