I am trying to control a Nema 17 motor with a L298n dual bridge and an Arduino Mega.

My wiring is from this Instructable:

http://www.instructables.com/id/Control-DC-and-stepper-motors-with-L298N-Dual-Moto/?ALLSTEPS

When I connect it to my laboratory power supply the current limitation blinks. Normally when there is too much current is needed the LED is all the time on and not blinking.

So I increase the current limit and the motor just starts moving on 3.1A @ 12V (doesn't move if less current) and in the description of the motor on amazon they say "Rated Current/Phase:1.2A" so I am wondering what did I do wrong here?

From my understanding "Rated Current/Phase:1.2A" means that I should run this motor (it's a bipolar stepper motor with 2 phases) not higher than 2.4A?

These are the informations from amazon about this motor:

Specifications:

  • Led screw diameter: 8mm

  • Lead screw length: 300mm

  • Step angle :1.8 degree

  • Nut material: Brass

  • Holding Torque: 400mN*m

  • Thrust(full step): 12.5kg

  • Rated Current/Phase:1.2A

  • Rate Voltage: 3.3v

  • Rated Resistance/Phase:2.2±10%ohm

What would be a good voltage to run this motor? I thought 12V is a good idea with.

The motor L298n gets really hot when I run it at 3.2A or more so I think my setup will destroy the dual bridge and / or the motor.

I really appreciate help on this! :-)
