 Product Description

DQ542MA is a two phase hybrid stepper motor driver, it designed to get the most out of your stepper motor.  This driver can be used with motors requiring a current of up to 4.2A to run and features micro stepping up to 128.  This driver is typically used with CNC machines, 3D printers, laser cutting machines and automation machines.

Specifications

  • 2 Phase stepper driver
  • Input Voltage: 18 - 50VDC
  • Input current: <4A
  • Micro stepping: 15 options up to 128 micro stepping
  • Optional idle current reduction setting
  • Output current: 8 channel current setting
  • Opto-isolated inputs
  • Manufacturer: Wantai
  • Manufacturer product code: DQ542MA

Connection options:

With reference to the diagrams below:

  • When VCC = 5V, R = 0 (Open Connection)
  • When VCC = 12V, R = 1K (>1/8W)
  • When VCC = 24V, R = 2K (>1/8W)

When VCC is supplied:

  • Standstill current setting

SW4 is used for this purpose. OFF meaning that the standstill current is set to be half of the selected dynamic current and ON meaning that standstill is set to be the same as the selected dynamic current.

  • Output current setting:

The first three bits (SW 1, 2, 3) of the DIP switch are used to set the dynamic current. Select a setting

  • Semi-flow function:

Semi-flow function is that there is not step pulse after 500 ms, the driver output current automatically reduced to 70% of rated output current, which is used to prevent motor heat.

  • Power connections

(1)+V、GND:Power Supply.

   +V: Power supply, 18~50 VDC, Including voltage fluctuation and EMF voltage. The max current is 5A.

(2) A+  A-  B+  B-:Connecting 2 phase stepper motors.

The driver & 2-phase hybrid stepping motor use four-wire connection, the motor can be connected in parallel & series bipolar. As for bipolar connection, it is higher performance with high-speed, but the current of driver is larger (it is 1.73 times more than the motor’s winding current).
Connecting in series, the driver’s current is equal to the motor winding one.

  • Mounting

There should be 20mm of space all sides of the driver, it can’t be placed next to other heating devices and avoid dust, oil, mist, corrosive gas, humidity and strong vibration areas.

  • Adjustment of troubleshooting

1)  The status on light’s indication
PWR: green, normal work light.
ALM: red, failure light, the motor with phase short-circuit, overvoltage and under-voltage protection.

2) Trouble shooting

Alarm indicator

Reasons

Measures

LED off turn

Wrong connection for power

Check wiring of power

Low-voltages for power

Enlarge voltage of power

Motor doesn’t run, without holding torque

Wrong connection of stepper motor

Correct its wiring

RESET signal is  effective when offline

Make RESET ineffective

Motor doesn’t run, but maintains holding torque

Without input pulse signal

Adjust PMW & signal level

Motor runs wrong direction

Wrong wires’ connection

Change connection for any of 2 wires

Wrong input direction signal

Change direction setting

Motor’s holding torque is too small

Too small relative to current setting

Correct rated current setting

Acceleration is too fast

Reduce the acceleration

Motor stalls

Rule out mechanical failure

Driver does not match with the motor

Change a suitable driver
