    Hi,

    I have salvaged a stepper motor out of a old printer, but have no idea what voltage/Amps it requires.

    The only information it has on it is EM-319.
    and less important: 021705B ( which I think is just the serial number )

    I have used a multimeter and found there are 2 seperate coils, 10ohms each.

    It came out of a Epson Stylus Photo 870 printer.

    Thats all the info I could gather about it, if you could please help as a google search didnt show up anything.

    Cheers

    Usually you can't find much information on that type of motor. They a built by other manufacturers for the printer company. And since the printers are considered throw-away not much info.

    If you go here; http://www.cs.uiowa.edu/~jones/step/ you may be able to figure out what you want to know.

    I saw a picture of it on the internet, same place as previous post, but no spec. It is a small bipolar stepper motor. You should be able to drive it with a SN754410. I would run it at a voltage lower than 12 volts.
