This hybrid bipolar stepping motor has a 1.8° step angle (200 steps/revolution). Each phase draws 280 mA at 7.4 V, allowing for a holding torque of 650 g-cm (9 oz-in). The motor has four color-coded wires terminated with bare leads: black and green connect to one coil; red and blue connect to the other. It can be controlled by a pair of suitable H-bridges (one for each coil), but we recommend using a bipolar stepper motor driver.
Our 5 mm universal mounting hub can be used to mount objects on the stepper motor’s 5 mm-diameter output shaft, and our NEMA 14 aluminum bracket offers a variety of options for mounting this stepper motor in your project.

The following diagram shows the stepper motor dimensions in mm. The dimension labeled “length” is 26 mm. The output D-shaft has a length of 21 mm and a 5 mm diameter with a section that is flattened by 0.5 mm. This shaft works with our 5 mm universal mounting hub.
Stepper Motor Applications
Stepper motors are generally used in a variety of applications where precise position control is desirable and the cost or complexity of a feedback control system is unwarranted. Here are a few applications where stepper motors are often found:
- CNC machines
- 3D printer/prototyping machines (e.g. RepRap)
- Laser cutters
- Pick and place machines
- Linear actuators
- Hard drives
