Adafruit + Maxuino

by martin112 on Mon Mar 14, 2016 11:48 am

hi,

I wanna use this shield: https://www.adafruit.com/products/81 for stepper motors. And I want to controll one stepper motor with maxuino. In the FAQ of Adafruit stands: "Which pins are connected to the DC/Stepper motors?
The DC/Stepper motors are NOT connected to the Arduino directly. They are connected to the 74HC595 latch which is spoken to by the Arduino. You CANNOT talk directly to the motors, you MUST use the motor shield library."
But to use Maxuino or to test it in the helppatch I have to insert the pins? Does anybody knows how it works or is it not possible to use this driver with max msp? Best Martin

That is version 1 of the shield which was discontinued several years ago. All of the documentation is still on-line - including the schematics of the board. We do not carry the board anymore and have never carried the Maxuino, so we don't know if they are compatible.
