Stepper motor, 120Vdc, 6 Ampere

Question asked by Hal9 on May 17, 2018

I would need advice on how to make a stepper motor drive with a supply voltage of 120Vdc and a current of 6 nominal Amps.

 

It seems to me there are only 2 ways, even if I do not know if they are feasible, they are:

 

1) Use 2 PWD13F60 (2 H-bridges) to control the 2 windings of the stepper for the power part; and use an STM32 microcontroller for the control part.
Sore point of this solution, I have not found any application notes that describe how to use the devices of the STM32 to directly control a stepper.

 

2) Use 2 PWD13F60 (2 H-bridges) to control the 2 windings of the stepper for the power part; and use an L6480 or L6482 controller for control.

Sore point of this solution, I do not know if the controllers that serve to directly drive the mosfet can be used only as "digital" signals to drive the 2 H-bridges (which have already integrated the drivers).

 

Can someone help me on both questions or seal something else?
Thank you
