    HI everybody,

    I am looking for a stepper motor with 60 step/round and with 6°.
    I would like to know if you know any suppliers that can provide me that motor.
    I've done some searches but i didn't find anything

    Thanks

    It would be easier for the members to help if you include your location. ;)

    Can't find any stepper motors that do 6 degree.

    Found this it may help?

    I tried Mouser, Jameco, and Digikey. No luck.

    You need a stepper with a planetary gear box, but 3.3:1 may be hard to find, unless it is flexible?

    You can use gears or timing belts and pulleys to change the step amount from a stepper. Plus most stepper drives are capable of many smaller steps in the electronics of the driver. What are you making that needs 6 degree steps? The motors themselves are only accurate to ~3-5% of angle.

    I set up this project during a discussion here at Allaboutcircuits, and I've posted a link to the video several times in different threads.

    It shows a 7.5 degree (48 steps per rev) motor simulating a 6 degree (60 steps per rev) motor, in order to drive the second hand of a clock. Why does the motor make a noise 4 steps out of 5, and then is silent for a single step? That's a question that you can answer if you understand how a microcontroller is likely to drive this kind of motor. The LEDs on the breadboard provide a clue.

    The linistepper stepper motor driver;
    http://www.piclist.com/techref/io/stepper/linistep/index.htm
    can be set to microstepping rates of 6th and 18th microsteps, giving 1200 and 3600 steps per revolution.

    It is the only stepper motor driver circuit that natively gives you the ability to turn the 200 step motor in microsteps that divide one whole rotation by 6 (or 60) divisions. Ideal for clock use.
