Question #: 15057

Question: Is there a way to change the direction of a motor with the motor to driver wiring?

Current Solution

You can change the direction of a stepper motor's rotation by swapping the A and B coils where the stepper motor is connected to the stepper driver. This may not work with every stepper motor and driver combination.

To do this:
- Turn off all power to the stepper drivers. If this is not done, you will damage the stepper driver.
- Wait at least 1 minute for the power to dissipate from the drivers and power supply.
- Once power is off, remove the wires from the A+ and A- and insert these wires into the B+ and B- respectively. Then insert the wires that were in the B+ and B- into the A+ and A- respectively.
