AccelStepper for Particle

This is the Arduino port of AccelStepper library for Particle devices. It provides an object-oriented interface for 2, 3 or 4 pin stepper motors.

The standard Arduino IDE includes the Stepper library (http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/Stepper) for stepper motors. It is perfectly adequate for simple, single motor applications.

AccelStepper significantly improves on the standard Arduino Stepper library in several ways:

  • Supports acceleration and deceleration
  • Supports multiple simultaneous steppers, with independent concurrent stepping on each stepper
  • API functions never delay() or block
  • Supports 2, 3 and 4 wire steppers, plus 3 and 4 wire half steppers.
  • Supports alternate stepping functions to enable support of AFMotor (https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-Motor-Shield-library)
  • Supports stepper drivers such as the Sparkfun EasyDriver (based on 3967 driver chip)
  • Very slow speeds are supported
  • Extensive API
  • Subclass support

Example usage

#include "AccelStepperSpark.h"

// Define a stepper and the pins it will use
AccelStepper stepper; // Defaults to AccelStepper::FULL4WIRE (4 pins) on D2, D3, D4, D5

void setup()
{
// Change these to suit your stepper if you want
stepper.setMaxSpeed(100);
stepper.setAcceleration(20);
stepper.moveTo(500);
}

void loop()
{
// If at the end of travel go to the other end
if (stepper.distanceToGo() == 0)
stepper.moveTo(-stepper.currentPosition());

stepper.run();
}
