SKU: EIT-ROB-036 Category: Tags:


The STC1002 allows you to control a bipolar stepper motor ( up to 8A). This Phidget connects to your computer through a VINT Hub and requires an 8-30V DC power supply.


  • Control position, velocity, and acceleration
  • Current Control – Set the current limit and holding current separately
  • Two Drive Modes – Step mode specifies a target position in 1/16th steps. Run mode rotates continuously at a specified velocity.

Technical Details:

  • Isolation – The VINT hub and the computer will be protected if anything goes wrong with your circuit
  • Polarity Protection – The device will not turn on and will not be damaged if the power supply is connected backward
  • Overcurrent Protection – Onboard fuse to protect the controller in an over-current event
  • Failsafe Protection – Set the device to turn off automatically if your program becomes unresponsive
  • Power Saving – Separate control over the current limit and the holding current limit



warning Make sure the power supply is unplugged before attaching or removing wires from the terminal blocks. Failure to do so could cause permanent damage to the Phidget.

Product History

The STC1002 is an upgraded version of the discontinued STC1000.

Date Board Revision Device Version Comment
September 2018 0 101 Product Release
April 2019 0 102 Fixed bug that caused STC1002 to become unresponsive
May 2019 0 110 Added failsafe timer functionality
Sept 2019 0 111
  • Fixed issue where stepper could stop functioning while still attached
  • Velocity changes that cause the motor to stop now cause deceleration instead of abrupt stop
  • Changing acceleration while the motor is moving now works properly as long as velocity is between -1000 and +1000 steps/sec. Changing acceleration outside of this velocity range can cause unpredictable acceleration behaviour because the device cannot recalculate the accerlation curve fast enough
  • Fixed issues that occured when switching between Run mode and Step mode and vice-versa while the motor is running
October 2019 0 112 Fixed msfollower bug
August 2020 0 113 Fixed crash that made STC1002 unresponsive until power cycle
November 2020 0 114 Fixed crash that could occur at low acceleration
March 2022 0 121 Failsafe timer now resets on any successful packet. Step mode now waits for new velocity before moving.
