Here I have written this code to rotate stepper motor. When the input on digital pin 2 becomes high, then the motor should rotate clockwise. When the digital pin 3 becomes high, it should rotate in a different direction. When the input on both pins is low, the motor should not move.

But with this code the motor is moving continuously even if you apply high input to digital pins.

Please suggest how to fix this problem. For input signal I am taking signal from relays: if relay is in on condition, it should give a high signal and vice versa.

Does the relay actually connect the pin to ground when it is off? Or does it leave the input floating? If it leaves it floating then you should use a pull-down resistor to make sure the pin actually sees ground and not stray interference.

If you can rewire the relays you can use an active low configuration and save the resistor since the Arduino has built-in pullup resistors.

I think its better to use count function .. you need to test yor stepepr motor first ..here the code to test .. i hope its will help :)

 Serial.println("h : anticlockwise"); 
 Serial.println("i : clockwise");

    Please, expand your answer to explain what your doing and why. Teach the man how to fish. – user31481 Oct 21 '17 at 14:55
  • copy the code that i was give .. change the pin of stepper motor to your own pin .. then upload to the arduino board and see waht happend at serial monitor – Mohd Zubir Oct 21 '17 at 16:49

Disclaimer: I've never used this library. The following is my thoughts from looking at the code.

This example seems to do basically what you want. It doesn't seem to be necessary to do any digitalWrites yourself - you just need to call call .step(x).

There also doesn't seem to be any need to anything in the "do nothing" case - you don't need to tell it not to step, as far as I can see.

I couldn't work out why you were stepping 40000 steps at a time. I've changed it to 1. You can change it back if I missed something.

Also note I've used else if so that if both inputs are high, the motor doesn't go forward AND backwards. Maybe that's the behaviour you want, and if not, again, you can change it.

#include <Stepper.h>
#define STEPS_PER_MOTOR_REVOLUTION 32   
Stepper small_stepper(STEPS_PER_MOTOR_REVOLUTION, 8, 10, 9, 11);
int buttonApin=2;
int buttonBpin=3;

void setup()
{
    pinMode(buttonApin,INPUT);
    pinMode(buttonBpin,INPUT);
}

void loop()
{
    int valA=digitalRead(buttonApin);
    int valB=digitalRead(buttonBpin);
    if(valA==HIGH)
    {
        small_stepper.step(1);
        delay(1000);
    }
    else if(valB==HIGH)
    {
        small_stepper.step(-1);
        delay(1000);
    }
}
