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.

Use Wi-Fi Stepper in projects like:
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.
The software side of stepper control is also made easier with Wi-Fi Steppers open source software integration options, including a powerful web application with quickstart functions and guides.

To help you get started, we’ve written a web application that allows you to start moving within minutes of plugging in your motor. You can adjust any configuration setting, test simple motion commands, and generate example code all from the Quickstart dashboard interface.
Drag and edit servo position quickly and intuitively or enter in precise angles. View openloop position feedback and manage step sizes.
Quickstart guide servo mode control pane
Set RPM and visualize speed. Manage hard stop (active bridge) and soft stop (high impedance bridge) settings. Enable stop on switch engagement (for E-Stop or homing).
Use an external motion driver to control the motor. Direction configuration can be tied to switch input.
Quickstart guide stepmode mode control pane
Specify safety limits, speed profiles, torque settings, and speed optimization. With advanced configuration, you can manage current and voltage waveform generation, back EMF compensation, stall detection, and more.
