Stepper Motor Max Speed and Acceleration
Apologies if this has been discussed previously, but just a quick one to ask if it should be possible to increase the maximum stepper motor speed and acceleration beyond 2000 steps/sec and 10000 steps/sec/sec? Whenever I try and type in numbers greater than these it just returns back to these numbers. I saw in the stepper motor introduction video that the maximum speed was increased beyond this, so I'm guessing the controller is capable of delivering a higher frequency output? It would be useful to do this for me to speed up the response as I have ended up with a driver with a minimum steps per revolution of 400, rather than 200.
Thanks very much.
2000 steps/sec is the max today. It is lower than the theoretical max to decrease the load on the YourDyno processor. Are you able to swap to a motor with 200 steps/rev? Then you get a full 10 revs/sec with 2000 steps/sec. Another idea is a different gearing.
The acceleration can be increased, there is no load associated with that, it was just a number I expected would be high enough for all applications. If you swap to 200 steps/sec then I bet you it is enough, but let me know otherwise.
