Stepper motor animation

This interactive, animated demonstration shows how stepper motors work. It starts when you move the "continuous" slider to the left or right. Alternatively, you can also view individual images by clicking the arrows. To select a control type or connection (unipolar, bipolar or microstep), choose "Stepper motor" in the menu bar below. By clicking the button "Phase schema", you will see the current flow in the windings.
