I was wondering if the EasyDriver connected to Arduino can control more than 1 Stepper Motor?
If yes, would you be able to advice me on what parts to purchase or if there might be a reference to how to hook up more than 1 Stepper Motor?
Your time on this is much appreciated.

I was wondering, can I use a 12v adapter with 600mA instead of the 750mA as suggested?
Your help on this would be appreciated.
ovrtn5 wrote:Can you help clarify what color leads on the motor actually go in what locations on the board? I have been watching your video trying to track the wire colors since it looks like you change the colors around on the breadboard.
Does the JPEG above the video link represent the correct color combination or can you reply with that? I have the same controller and motor just trying to figure out the correct wiring.

Thank you for your reply. Could I replace the transistor with MOSFET? I am not quite familiar with MOSFET. So I would like to try with it to get some experiences. Thanks,
thanx for the great tutorial.
I'm planning to do it this week, I just received all the parts from sparkfun. I'm just wandering about power stuff. I'm french but currently in Los Angeles , so I'm not sure about current. I bought a 12v AC 800mA power adapter, cut the wires but there is no information (no red / black cable). So my question is as it's AC , does it matter how the 12V power is plugged ? I also bought a 8 AAA battery holder. I think this one is polarized and need to be correctly plugged but again what about the adapter?

I'll get a multimeter tomorow to Check that. Anyway in your tutorial you use à 12v AC adapter.. Does this have polarity? did you risk to burn the board by inversing polarity? I don't get it.
Thanks for your help.

here is the doc for the adapter if you're interested :

So I guess the EasyDriver requires DC, and they make it clear that this should not be used with your material requires DC.
The first thing I should asked was does Easydriver requires DC, and yes it does.
