Wi-Fi Stepper is a feature-packed, easy-to-use, stepper motor controller accessible over Wi-Fi. It can handle small to big stepper motors under high current. You can send crypto-secured commands over Wi-Fi from a computer, phone, or any other platform. Integration with other controllers is possible using the step clock and direction input pins. Wi-Fi Stepper makes controlling a stepper motor easy and productive.

Big or small, bring your motor into the IoT world.
Many projects need a way to interact with the real world. For a lot of applications, stepper motors are the preferred way. They work well at slow to medium speeds and without gearbox reductions. There are plenty of inexpensive NEMA mounts to choose from. They have excellent torque ratings and can even provide high torque at extremely low speed. Stepper motors can run at speed, or as a servo that holds position at any angle. Stepper motors are commonly used in CNC applications and are a great entry-level motor to learn the basics.
With a proper power supply, this project supports most motors on the market. With its voltage and current ratings, even the mammoth NEMA 42 is within its comfort zone for the most demanding applications.
