Making sure not to blow anything up before testing.
I have an adafruit motor shield and an arduino Uno. The arduino uno has a power input and I was hoping to use it to power the motor shield, a nema-17 motor, and an I2C connection. Currently I'm using the power connection on the motor shield to power the nema-17 motor and a serial connection to power the arduino.
Can I just connect a power supply to the input port on the ardiuno uno and power the motor shield and nema-17 step motor?
