Controller (SMC)
This modular motor controller requires minimal electrical setup. Simply power it with a DC adapter, connect a NEMA 17 stepper motor via a pluggable electrical connector, and easily configure a mode using its LCD and push-button interface. This controller can be used in a range of table-top applications or easily fit inside casings of other equipment—truly making it a swiss-army knife of all motor controllers!
