Silent Running Stepper Motors


Recommended Posts



Does the Stepper Brick allow virtually silent operation of stepper motors? I'm a stepper newbie so have never played with them, but I read that if the motor can be driven with a sine and cosine waveform, that silent operation can be achieved...


I've got an idea for a project with stepper motors, but I need the motors to be silent..

You may get a tolerable low volume while it is running in micro stepping mode.


But as soon as the stepper motor is standing still and there is still power on it (i.e. it holds the position with force and is not free-wheeling) there will be high pitched noises. I don't think there is anything one can do about that.
