Abstract : Many instruments for scientific research and development employ one or more motors for control of some function, or to position, shafts, gratings, mirrors, recorders, etc. Use of this factor provides one of the most simple and economical methods of automating this equipment. The report describes a universal stepping motor controller that is extremely versatile and can be built inexpensively. Control is provided to run the motor in either forward or reverse directions in single steps, or slew at one of eight set rates. Given a number of steps and number of intervals which are multiple of the step size, it may be set to scan automatically under external control or manually. Complete circuit operations and construction details are provided as are some example applications. (Author)
