SimStack Stepper

SimStack Stepper features an Ethernet controlled Stepper Motor with angular position accuracy of 0.1 degrees. This product builds on the Tropical Labs Mechaduino by introducing an Ethernet connectivity that integrates directly with SimStack Switch.

The SimStack Stepper is coupled to a NEMA 17 stepper motor with a built-in Hall Effect sensor to provide accurate position data in a closed loop format.

Our solution can support both directly coupled and geared installations and owing to the close loop design, the motor will never lose steps. This introduces a new level of accuracy for analog instruments.

When used in a directly coupled configuration, no external position sensing hardware is required. Geared installations will require an external position sensor which can be a 10 turn potentiometer, a physical switch or optical sensor.

Customised firmware is provided to suit each installation where SimStack stepper is used, such as;

  • Artificial horizon – roll control
  • Analog altimeter
  • Pressurisation Gauge
  • Whiskey Compass
  • Airspeed indicator
