Hi every one, bonjour,
Finally, i got my TB6560 stepper motor driver-controller.
I am looking now for cheap stepper motor to do my first tests.
i got this reference : 28BYJ-48, but i got no information about the current it drives and it needs.
is there any one who has already used the TB6560 with labview?
and how about the motor 28BYJ-48 any help? experience to share?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Never used the driver, but here is some info on the motor, just Google it:

Thank you so much AK2DM for your prompte answer.
Indeed, the link you sent me has lot of information, but i have already have them.
May be, i am new in this field..;
please, correct me if i am wrong, a stepper motor is caracterized but it phase curent
for exemple for thse known motors Nema17:
the phase curent is 1A
and for this one:
the rated current is 0.8A
and, i need this information for the 28BYJ-48 to know which driver i can use, or to be more precise wich power supply i shall use for mu TB6560 to drive this motor (the input power, voltage and current of the driver, depends on how much current the stepper motor needs, but this information is no where on internet
i think that the problem is that those motors, have their own drivers (on 5V or 12V) and can't be driven by others drivers..;
please, can some one correct me?
all the best and tank you AK2DM for your answer

From the specs- volatge is 5V, phase resistance is 50 ohms. 5V/50ohms = 0.1Amp.

ONE THOUSAND THANKS!!!!
do definitly, i can't use the TB6560 with the 28BYJ-48
really thank you for the help, iwas not sure that i can do such simple calculation

Do you have the specification sheet for the stepper drive? I found some online and it looks like the motor could work with the drive. I would need to check the actual specifications from the manufacturer though.

Itwill be really nice if you can help in such way
here are the datashet i got :
(this one looks like externellay different from the board i have)
(this one is from the manufacturer, the one i h&ve is : TB6560AHQ)
i am really looking forwad to read your answer as using an 28BYJ48 will simplify my work really.

To clarify, the second link you sent, is that IDENTICAL to the hardware you have or is it just SIMILAR? Also, do you intend to use this device with LabVIEW?

Dear Michael B.
Yes definitly, the controller i want to use is based on the TB6560AHQ (3 ships,each for one direction)
So the ship is identical. (i mean the : TB6560AHQ not the TB6560AFG)
and the board is SIMILAR to http://www.cncgeeker.com/images/manual/CNC/3axisTB
AND OF COURSE, DEFINITLY, I WANT TO USE LABVIEW to control my 3D motion, i want to addapt it to a 2D imaging (X and Y motion), and the Z motion will be for focusing a laser on the surface of my sample. Am I clear?
thank you so much for the help, really i need it, as i am new in labview and the step moter stuff.
have, all of you, a nice week end

The output current of the motor drive is 3.5 A max and the motor only requires 0.5 A. So there is definitely enough current to drive the motor. The concerns I have are with the phase configuration and the output current from the driver. The specification sheet for the driver says it is only 2 phase, but the eBay page states that it is 4 phase. It will need to be 4 phase to drive the motor. The motor operates at 5 V, I cannot find a specification for the motor driver, but it needs to be 5 V in order to work with the motor. The motor driver is also for a Bipolar stepper motor. I cannot find a specification for the motor on whether it is bipolar or unipolar. So in order to make sure it will work the operating voltage of the driver will need to be confirmed, the phase of the driver will need to be confirmed, and the polarity of the motor will need to be confirmed.
