I am a newbie to Arduino.
What I am going to do is to change my roll to roll printer to flatbed printer. Rather using print roller, I decided to move the bed from a stepper motor.I know how to run the stepper motor for specific distance using arduino.
So I need to cheat printer to think that its roller is working and media is going through it.But actually what I am going to do is to monitor the printer motor running or not from arduino input and if the printer motor is running stepper motor will turn or if motor stops stepper motor must stop.
What my problem is how can I read that the dc servo motor status? How would I need to wire arduino input to servo motor to get the status.
Please show me some light on this.Sorry if this is a newbie question.
